Welcome to another Junkin Finds, and this time I’m showing you some things I’ve picked up junkin that are either really Halloweeny, or have the right colors to use in Halloween displays and table settings. There’s a lot of mid-century goodness to see here, so let’s get started.
I remember these plastic popcorn thingies from my elementary school classrooms in the 70s. My teachers always had them for each season, and oh, how I’ve been wanting some. Usually, they’re very faded when I spot them, and too much money. I was happy to find this guy cheap and bright.
And while we’re in the 1970s, here’s a wonderful blow mold that isn’t technically my find, but something I cherish. My grandmother bought me this when I were just a wee baby, and they’re highly collectible now:
Two yard sale finds from recent years: the table cloth was $1, and I think the little ceramic house was about $3. The house has a blue light bulb that flashes eerily, mwahahaha…
And now for my favorite (and the same for lots of you) — Kitchen Glass!
Vintage Hazel Atlas juice glasses and decanter, that just happen to look a lot like candy corn.
Of all the old juice bottles the glass companies used to make, I like the HAs the best. That shape and the ribbed neck is very easy to grasp one-handed. Oh yes, we use it! Hand wash only, though, dishwashers and vintage glass don’t get along!
Here is the Hazel Atlas mark, which many folks confuse for Anchor Hocking. The Anchor Hocking mark has an anchor (modern) or an anchor with a capital H (older). Hazel Atlas always used this capital H over a capital A.
And finally, my Halloween-ish bowls. I really love olde milk glass bowls. Aaahhhhhh.
Left to right, we have: Federal orange dots, Fire King orange/yellow cereal bowl (may be called Poppy, does anyone know?), Fire King black dots splash-proof bowl.
Some of the kids got together for a group photo.
Alright, y’all, back into the pie safe display with ya, and you Ghostie, back on the mantle. Photo shoot’s over.
Do you have any Halloween junkin finds you’d like to tell me about? I’d like to know, so tell me in the Comments section. Or tell me what you like here. I love to hear from y’all. I try to respond when I can, or repay the visit to your website if you have one.
Did you see the spider web tablecloth in my post: Halloween Tablescape with Silver Bat Centerpiece?
