Season's Creepings

 Hey Creeps! The next two weeks will be super hectic over here while I push hard to get two large runs of masks finished up before the holidays. During this time posting will be limited to short bursts of holiday hootenanny featuring festive freaks...

Sears Halloween Shop Button

 That's a wrap on the Masks of the Sears Halloween Shop series. I do have a few Sears Halloween Shop catalogs that were gifted to me at a Maskfest several years ago by another collector who wished to see them appear here. Alas, they are still packed away from my last move and are waiting to be unearthed and scanned.

 I am always on the look out for hard copies to scan, and hope to obtain some in the future. It's rare that I'll devote this much space over a week to low quality found images, but I do think it was a fun nostalgic look back at a 1980's Halloween tradition...

1979 SEARS Halloween Shop Catalog (Masks of the)

 The final two entries into the Masks of the Sears Halloween Shop Catalogs are limited in nature. The 1979 catalog pictured here is low-resolution and almost impossible to see the selection of illustrated masks in the line-up. The 1987 catalog pictured below is of decent resolution, but is missing one of the two pages of masks. I thought they still had a place here despite the limitations.
