Purple Stuff: 1980s Halloween eBay Dig!

We like to live dangerously, so we’re dropping this year’s Halloween episode of the Purple Stuff Podcast with like, ten seconds left between now and October 31st. That’s so metal.

After the success of last month’s 1990s Halloween eBay dig, we decided to do a sequel! (Or maybe it’s a prequel?) Join us for another eBay dig, this time to yank out some of the best and weirdest Halloween & horror items from the 1980s!

We had a blast with this one. There was just so much to choose from! We tackled everything from old monster dolls to obscure horror movies to some random skeleton who spits Play-Doh out of his eye sockets. What fun!
