Some Old Halloween Decorations Could Be Worth Big Bucks- Screamin’ Scott
Halloween decorations for the most part are already up everywhere. The Halloween stores got to open back in the spring of this year.
Here’s something for you diehard decorating fans. Some of those old decorations you might have in your spooky old attic could be worth something today. Do some research on your stockpile of spooky stuff. Many vintage decorations are worth a goldmine. Light up Jack O’Lanterns could be $200-$450 depending on the maker. Vintage Halloween lawn signs could be worth over $300.
Growing up in Warren, I took great pride in setting up for Halloween. My front porch was all decked out with spider webs, colored red lights, and spooky sounds from my Halloween playlist of albums. Cheap Trick “Gonna Raise Hell” was always a favorite and of course Bobby Borris Picket’s “The Monster Mash.” For Fog, I put a huge tub of water and blocks of dry ice. One of the items I collected was trick-or-treated plastic orange buckets. Most of the kids when I grew up used pillowcases, which made it easy to get more candy. The old Halloween buckets from the ’60s and ’70s go for over $100 now. My suggestion on the value of a Halloween item is to do the research online like on eBay to get started. Who knows? What you might find in the garage or up in the dark scary attic could make your wallet very happy this Halloween.
