First of all, they still make and sell blow molds. If you have a Menards around your area, they sell a large variety of blow molds at Christmas time. If you're looking for more of the vintage blow molds, if you have any antique malls around your area, you'll probably find some there. We have an antique mall around the area where I live and those small blow molds that are in your picture are a dime a dozen there. You also should check out Craigslist and Ebay, yard sales and auctions.

While visiting family in NOVA over Christmas, we drove around to "see the lights", and visited a favorite house, whose yard is filled with 1950s blown-mold snowmen, Santas, carolers, creche figures, angels, choirboys, and more. It is always quite a sight to see, and this year was no exception.

Vintage blown-mold figures have a lot of quirky charm, and are quite collectible (though at present, not collectible for investment - just for their own decorative appeal).
