Vintage Halloween Costumes

FyndIt is a place people go to post great and unusual Finds for others to discover. With Halloween quickly approaching one of our members has put together a collection of vintage children’s Halloween costumes from the 1970’s and 1980’s. If you are looking for a costume to dress your little one up in that will stand out at the Halloween party, think about choosing a retro costume from your own childhood. Your kid will most likely be the only one trick-or-treating in a vintage costume in the neighborhood. There is still time to get that throwback costume shipped to your door before the celebration kicks off on the 31st!

This week, one of our members posted a 19th Century Replica Vampire Slayer Kit. According to the description, the kit  includes a wooden cross with rosary beads, a vintage Holy Bible, vintage pliers (for pulling teeth), pointed silver cross,  vampire ashes (in bottle,) vampire teeth (in bottle), vampire blood (in bottle), six shot pistol (replica non firing), silver colored bullet (for pistol), paper cartridge pack (for pistol), replica percussion cap tin (for pistol), wooden mallet, wooden stake, four glass bottles that include brimstone, acrimony, vampirism and powdered garlic.

FyndIt Updates – Anywhere Finds and Multiple Photos!

The team at FyndIt has been working hard over the past few weeks to bring some exciting new features to the site. We believe these awesome upgrades will greatly improve the user experience and enhance a member’s ability to connect and discover hard-to-find collectibles and memorabilia with other community members.

Prior to the new release, online Finds could only be discovered through eBay, Amazon and Etsy. We’re happy to announce that Finders can now enter an online Find from anywhere! We listened to your feedback and wanted our members to have the ability to link to smaller e-commerce websites that offer specialty products.

Another cool new feature that we are really excited about is the improvements we’ve made to adding pictures to your Wants and Finds! You can now add multiple images making it easier to capture the overall condition of an item. A picture says a thousand words, and now you can add a thousand images! Well…ok, maybe you wouldn’t want to go haywire and add some crazy number of pics, but we are not going to limit you if you need to capture and convey several different angles of an item.

In addition to our super handy updates, we’ve also squashed some bugs with this new release. You can keep up to date on what new product features and updates are rolling out to FyndIt with our Release Notes.

We’d love to have you give our new updates a test drive and tell us what you think in our Community Forums. Get started with a new account at FyndIt. All you need to come up with is a username and password. Once you verify your email address with us, you’ll be on your way to getting help finding something by posting your first Want or making money by posting your first Find and earning a bounty reward if your item is accepted as a match.
