Kids love Halloween. Here’s something else to watch for this Halloween season – no, not witches and goblins, but Halloween cards. Today our guest is Chris A Morris who has lots of ideas on how to find and what to look for when collecting vintage Halloween cards. Kids enjoy collecting items, and they may like to collect current Halloween cards as well as vintage cards.

Collecting vintage Halloween cards can be a very rewarding area for people wishing to start a unique collection of Halloween items. This type of paper ephemera is very appealing to the eye, easily displayed, and it is neither particularly expensive nor very difficult to source some really choice Halloween memorabilia.

The crisp Fall air brings with it the wonderful smell and taste of fresh picked apples.

Here are some tips for picking and storing apples:

  • Twist or turn the apple from the branch. If you pull it, the buds next to it will break off and not bear fruit next year.
  • Don’t rely on redness as a guide to flavor.  Apples come in all shades of reds, yellows and greens. Choose clear colored apples. Often those with an intense green undercast or undertone are not completely ripe. Those with a dull yellowish-green undercast may be too ripe.
