Posted on

Whether you’re an avid collector who recently jumped on the horror train or a long-time customer who’s looking to give your devilish display a fresh glow, it’s always nice to mix in some retro-style horror memorabilia to add to your plethora of wicked cool figures and props. While many horror franchises have existed for decades, it wasn’t until the more recent rise in toy manufacturing that collectibles started making waves. That being said, it can be challenging to get your hands on one-of-a-kind horror antiques, which is why we carry a variety of horror collectibles that boast a retro style. 

Horror icon PEZ dispensers 

While PEZ Candy became the ultimate pop culture craze around the world throughout the ‘90s it still remains just as sweet in horror icon form. Whether you adore Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Slimer from Ghostbusters, or the popular Vampire Teddy from A Nightmare Before Christmas, there’s an assortment of retro-style horror POPS! just waiting to become a part of your grim collection. The best part about these keepsakes is they’re small and look great displayed on a shelf or bookcase for all to see!

Horror killer’s trading cards

For those who’re unfamiliar, a trading card is usually made out of paperboard and contains the image of a person or thing featuring a photo, a short description, and other text if there is a secondary purpose for the card. So, whether you grew up in a decade where trading cards were all the rave or you appreciate a wide variety of unique collectibles, you’ll love POPS trading cards—with seven, headlining horror villains including Captain Spaulding, Pennywise, Chucky, Billy the Puppet, Jason Voorhees, Jack Torrance, and Freddy Krueger. Once you collect every killer from the horror series, there’s a chilling game explained on the back of the deck!  

Spooktacular enamel pins

One could argue that enamel pins have never gone out of style and have been sported on backpacks, purses, hats, jeans, sweaters, sweatshirts, and other clothing items since they were invented by the Egyptians around 1271. But, there’s no denying that these small, but unique relics are nifty items to add to a collection of horror memorabilia. Boast frightful style with a Michael Myers, Wolfman, or Trick R’ Treat Sam enamel pin or if you prefer a memento that’s a tad bit more bizarre, enjoy options like The Munster’s coffin Dragula pin or the eerie visage of Holes the Clown from American Horror Story, Season 7.
