Nice little haul from the 3x annual Brimfield Ma Flea Market-- it was a substantially smaller show-- normally there are about 10 miles of dealers setup, this time there was only one field with about 300 vendors in it, so really less than 1% of what the true show runs but one of the dealers told me they were shocked by the crowds and on day two they had already broken their all time sales record, so there was demand for the show to resume after taking last year off.

Ironically, the jiggly Frankenstein was one of the first things I ever spotted at Brimfield when I started going 30 years (!) ago, and I passed because it was too pricey.  This one is in great shape, might have been repainted but I didn't care, I got it for a fraction of the price of the one so many years ago.

The vintage Halloween stuff was really cool too.   Looking forward to the show in July when the other dealers are claiming they'll attend.   Love getting the walk in-- usually we do 10 miles a day.

LOVE that Halloween Rustlers bag!

Super awesome.

Cool! The Monster Times is really tough to collect in nice shape because it doesn't even have a glossy cover surrounding the pulp pages.

Oh yeah, that is boss!

Has anyone seen any paper Halloween treat bags similar to the one above being marketed in recent years? It seems to me that all the ones produced these days are cellophane.

I recently found these Supernatural Stories magazines. They started being published in 1954, and came out bi monthly.
The covers are amazing.

Those are great! Did you buy them in one big batch?  I like the Chaney Mummy and the "Man of 1K Faces" covers!

I had a few for years but found 90% of them a few days ago.

They are an interesting series. R.L. Fanthorpe wrote a ton of these and did it at an amazing pace. So fast, that some characters die o=in one chapter and show up two chapters later because he wrote them as dictation and had them transcribed. The cover was chosen and then the story was very loosely based on it.

Ahhhhh, from the days when the literacy rate was higher because people actually read rather than just watching the idiot box.

A pop art Universal Monster shirt from Kohl's. Picked it up because of the depiction of Karloff from Bride of Frankenstein which I rarely see on shirts, unless he's with the Bride.

Here's a better pic. He looks like he has fur, or feathers?

Andy Warhol's "Frankenstein".   :)

A number of years ago, I made a poster with the same premise:

When times are dark, donít consider art to be merely a distraction; rather, think of it as a lifeline-  Neil Gaiman paraphrase.
