Today I’m going to step sideways a bit, and rather than looking at a specific piece of Halloween packaging or marketing, I’m going to share a series of photos of Halloween retail store displays in 1969. I’m posting this to serve as a fun little peek into Halloween’s past.
Before I get to the images, I will point out that these came from a pair of articles on merchandising in a candy trade magazine. Due to the nature of the medium and the era, the quality on these isn’t so great. Even so, I was able to enhance them a bit, and I hope you enjoy the glimpse they provide into another Halloween era.
At this point, I’m going to let the images speak for themselves, so here they are:
And that’s all of them. I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into Halloween’s past. See you next time!
