1950s Halloween Candy Filled Black Cat store display box, seen on eBay. And only 5 cents each. Back then. It reminds me of the small store my sister and I would stop at on the way back from school. Very narrow, a hole in the wall really; there was a counter, nice old guy in back of that counter, and lots and lots of sugar-overloading wax candy, pretzel sticks, and Joyva Ring Jells for a few cents. Funny how you can remember the simpler things as you get older, but not the really important things like when he folded up shop and was no longer there. I should have paid more attention to things disappearing.
those masks with the rubber band were kinda torturous.. & the candy & chocolate just don't smell the same as a trick or treat bagfull of old, like soda pop i guess, made with different sweeteners rather than good old sugar?

That costume smell is one I still vividly recall. Nothing like it. But every time I wore a new costume, it was so darn hot to wear! Boy, talk about a love/hate relationship.

i'm also nostalgic about my childhood memories of when halloween would arrive at our thrifty drug store where all the kids would hang out for 5 cent ice creams.. that smell of wax & candy & all the new costumes @@! :D
