With Halloween just a month or so away, your editor and some friends were recently waxing nostalgic about the good old days--and the excitement that accompanied the hunt for that perfect costume--and the anticipated trick-or-treating quest for all the candy we'd think twice about eating now...And so, let's have some pre-Halloween vintage fun...To the right, a complete set of THE BEATLES costumes, 1964--and when you see what they recently sold for at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com, you'll find yourself longing for a time machine.

And check out all the costume options from 1971 too. Click on the photos and enjoy.

  1. Thank you so much for the old time candy site. I ordered some items. Wonders if they will taste the same as I remember. I'll let you know. Linda
