Blow molds

Which are better? Are the blow molds better or are the inflatables better?

They are both delightfully tacky, which is nothing wrong with that. With that said, they are not for everyone. It is probably more of a personal choice, if I were to make a choice I would go with blow molds just due to the retro/vintage look. I think there are some very cool inflatables, and I have had one as a Halloween decoration. But I consider myself more of a traditional Christmas decorator, so I tend to shy away from inflatables.

I'm a bigtime Blowmold fan. I'm personally not a fan of the inflatables. I must have 12 or so I put up for Halloween and about 20 for Christmas and the collection is still growing.

One of the largest problems with them is that they take alot of storage room and you also have to be careful with them from scratching and such...

A lot of people are buying old blow molds off of E-bay and Etsy. It's in the announcements forum. We need these blow molds back in business!
