Vintage Gurley Halloween Candles

A few years ago I came across these novelty candles at a garage sale. The only reason I picked them up was because my mom collects Christmas candles that look similar. I had no idea how collectible vintage Halloween candles would be. This small collection was the extent of my Halloween decorations, until this year...
The candles were made by the Gurley Novelty Co., which manufactured candles from 1940 - 1960. A couple years ago Country Living ran this article... if you click on the picture you might be able to read it.
Happy Halloween!

I love Gurley candles, and have several of the Christmas ones.
It seems the Halloween ones are harder to find.
Thanks for sharing!

Happy Hallpween too! I love those candles, but they just aren't here. So I don't have to look for them.

I love your collection of Gurley candles! Lindsey collects them also. She found some at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago and showed them in our blog post dated Oct. 25th. Thanks for showing the article in Country Living. Twyla
