Vintage Glass Toy Candy Containers -- Findlay's Old Barn Auction Report

Winking Cat Candy Container Sets Record Price at Auction

The Old Barn Auction house, in Findlay Ohio, recently had one of their regular Candy Container auctions.

The top seller was a rare Winking Cat with original paint, and it sold for $8250.00 -- wow! I'd say the price is because of scarcity, condition, of course, but also because of THEME - it has the candy container and toy factor, as well as the Halloween and Cat cross-over collectibility factor.

The AW article shows several other rare candy containers, with realized prices. You can still see the entire Old Barn Candy Container auction catalog online. As of 7/29/12 the completed prices are still online - cool!

They had several I would love to get some day, to add to my Easter collection. Here's my wish-list pic.
