Part of our back to school display is this teacher’s edition of Hay Wingo. (Clowns are terrifying by themselves; mix them with phonics and doh!) Our price is waaaaay lower than either Ebay or Amazon. So contact us directly or the shop at (218) 998-3088 (between 10 am & 5 pm everyday, Central Time) to snatch this one up!
Some old costumes at Exit 55 Antiques in Fergus Falls, MN. The black one has orange pom-pons and cardboard pieces (jack-o-lanterns and crows) stuck to it. The traditional dotted clown costume is and truly terrifying because clowns are scary.
Bessie Love, as a burlesque clown. Perhaps the only clown that, while a tad creepy, isn’t scaring me to death.
At Nevada’s Clown Motel. If you’re brave, or just foolish, check out Cheetah Velour’s post to see lots more frightening photos of the joint.

Spotted at a thrift store today; I didn’t handle him, but I’m pretty sure he’s this one by Hasbro. Price on his shoe is $9.99.
Is a Lon Chaney clown.
The only thing scarier than a clown is SyFy’s Haunted Collector — and Haunted Collector is stupider. If you watched the first episode, you saw this cookie jar — Boo!
(Sorry, my vintage pottery McCoy clown cookie jar has been sold.)
