We are halfway to Halloween and I’m ahead of schedule when it comes to decorations. Sure I’ll see what new decor Target has to offer but in the mean time it’s been nothing but vintage at my house.
I can remember walking through a supermarket and seeing all the advertisements and promotional displays that Anheuser-Bush had back in 1993 or 1994. Bats and jack o’ lanterns hanging from the rafters, promotional gifts when you buy a case of Budweiser or Bud Light. I was to young to drink but those Halloween decorations stuck with me over the years. I would see Budweiser Fright Night or Elvira, Mistress of the Dark promoting Coors Light in commercials. You don’t see advertisements like that anymore. Now it’s all about the next Candy or chocolate commercial. You know who does an excellent job each year during Halloween is Tombstone Pizza, look at their packaging when you buy one of their pizzas this Halloween season.
Here’s a Bud shirt pin and another cardboard wall hanger… I really enjoy hunting for these vintage decorations. You can find some weird stuff.
