My Wife and I were compelled to stop at a yard sale in San Marino, an upscale suburb N/E of L A. It looked like a waste of time till doggone it, my wife saw the beat up Blow Mold snowman. I knew she would buy it so I suggested that it was not worth more than 10 bucks. I was sure they wanted double that and we would not take him home with us. She walked away with this guy for 3 dollars. He’s missing his nose and the cord and light but that’s an easy fix. He’s about 4 ft tall.

The teardrop is a pool float that lights up at night. It is solar powered. The snowman has an opening at the base just big enough for the light. Not as bright as a bulb but bright enough to give the snowman a nice glow.

Love the Chinatown Christmas display!
We always try to go to local Chinatown when on vacation.

So I always thought that there was a Bowling alley next to that Chinese restaurant in the movie Christmas story.

BUT it looks more like it is a Chinese restaurant named Bowling Chop Suey Palace.

Ha! too funny, never saw that before.

We did go to the Peking Duck house in New York Chinatown they too cut the head off the duck at your table plus the feet.
They had ducks hanging from the ceiling all over the kitchen, don't know how they got away with that health code wise.

We took head plus the feet home to our nieces in a doggy bag.

Cool display!!

Me and CeCe just got back from Hatch after a couple of great cocktails and settled down with a bottle of California Cab. Didn’t need to see Hilda’s and Mike’s spelling contest. I could use this keyboard mo betta If we were not laughing so much.

Not to distract from the cool vintage Christmas display photos on this thread but thanks for the high praises on our Chinatown display, Tikiskip. My wife and I has been collecting these piece for over 20 years. Been on the road so I didn't reply earlier. Note: I was watching your clip of the film to compare buildings from the film with the display replica and from the sign down to the ground it's a good copy including the Chinese characters on the sign. From the sign up it's been heavily augmented so the building would fit in a Chinatown neighborhood and not a building from anywhere middle America. Some of these displays where manufactured in China so the calligraphy on the sign are correct and the faces of the Chinese figurines are well done without being caricatures. Side note: I bought a cheap and tiny MP4 player and tiny speaker and I played that "Ringle Biels" song and William Hung's "Hung for the Holidays" classic Christmas CD (sarcasm) and hid them in the Chinatown Christmas display for more atmosphere. Ha ha ha, not ho, ho, ho. Happy Holidays everyone!!!!

Well yes and no, That is I use White shoe polish not Spray snow or glass wax.
Now White shoe polish comes off very easy but if it gets wet ie rain it's done.
I just put my décor on the inside of the window and it's fine.

I think I now have a collection of Christmas stencils.

Tikiskip is a Wrapper.

Retro Christmas wrap.
Love to collect and use the old Christmas tags.
On the cool tags you don't want to mess up you can Xerox them and use over and over.




Here are a few Christmas stencils...









Even collect old Betty Crocker Christmas...
To me Christmas is old and traditional.
