Happy Mall-O-Ween!!

Just wanted to pop in tonight and wish everyone a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! Been so busy today I haven't had much time to blog like I had planned to here (I will later though).

But anyway, I did want to at least post a few spooky things for today, so enjoy these vintage Halloween newspaper circular ads form all over the country.

These are mostly from the early '70s except for the Town n' Country Mall ad, which dates to 1985. From Woolworth, to Kresge's, to Town n' Country Mall, to Arlington Market and Valu-Mart... there's a little treat here for everyone I think. :)

Oh, and uh, pay no attention to the plaza's name in the last ad, btw. Please? Lol.

The Arlington ad had both exchange names and regular numeric exchanges in the phone numbers. I bet that ad is older than early 70's.

Nope. It's October of 1970, actually.

Not only do I have access to the actual newspaper, but also, if you look reeeally closely in that ad, there is a year clue there.

Oh and, funny comments guys. Lol!

D'oh, the tire sale.

I can't believe people were still using exchange names in 1970, wow.
