Customer Question

I have had a Howdy Doody tri color, 18" glass ceiling light shade fixture given to me
As a child in 1954. It has been boxed and is in excellent condition. How can I find a serious collector ? What is it's approximate worth today?

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
Your vintage Howdy Doody ceiling light fixture in original packaging would sell for up $125 - $150 on today’s market.
The majority of Howdy Doody collectors turn to Ebay for vintage memorabilia as well as Etsy and Craigslist, but potential for higher bidding will be on Ebay.
Here is a link to a comparable that sold for $100 that did not come with original box:
