This Week in Vintage and Thrift Store Death and Devil Paintings

Need new décor for your coven? Something to camouflage the bloodstains on the basement wall? Local thrift and vintage stores are well stocked with affordable, terrifying pieces of art depicting death's heads and visions of hell.

We found some thrilling, chilling pictures (and one creepy pillow) at Dolly Python, White Elephant, Curiosities, Ferguson Thrift and the little Goodwill on Lower Greenville. Last time we looked, most of these were still on the shelves, priced from a few dollars to the low three figures.

One imagines that these things ended up in the resale emporia because their owners couldn't live with them a moment longer.

Treat yourself to a piece of art and when the eyes follow you around the room, remember, we warned you.
