Smile! Something Bewitching for You

This adorable old hag is proof positive that they don’t make paper Halloween decorations like they used to.  With rivets at the shoulders to allow for arm movement and a generous supply of crepe paper to create a winged cape effect, this goes well beyond a simple cardboard cut-out.  Yet, back in the 1940′s or 50′s when you could buy this decoration in the local five and dime, she probably cost no more than twenty-five cents.  This winking witch is about eight inches tall and was made in the USA by an unknown company.  She has a string loop for hanging but we usually just prop her standing up in and among the other vintage decorations.
