What a great idea for hanging cards, thank you skip. Now I need some vintage cards so I can cut out figures and things to glue to the clothes pins.

My wife found the beat up snowman at a yard sale some time ago. Bout 5 foot tall
The Santa head was rescued from a trash can. He has slight damage under his nose. We patched him up an added the lights inside. unlike the blowmolds-he is made of a thin translucent plastic. About 24”x18” Very fragile. My grandkids call him the Coca-Cola Santa.
We bought the standing Santa at an antique shop in Ventura last week. He is in excellent condition.36” tall

Ok you axed for it.

I like old plastic Christmas do dads.
Many times I find them for a buck.



These are cake toppers, I like to buy these all massed up as they cost less and then fix them up.
You can put these in drinks as a fruit pick, or use them in warping gifts.
Many uses for these....

before..

after..


Not going to open this one as the package is cool...

Love this thread!!

Here are some more Christmas mailing labels.
I had a repo label done with my Tikiskip logo put on it.
Then I had them wrapped in an old Denison packaging logo, hint there is only one of these packages made.

Even had Tikiskip fragile labels made.
I use these when I send a light to people, plus give them out when I meet people in person,
not available in stores.
Just think one day some goofy label collector may be looking for these in the future, Ha!



The others are real old Christmas mailing labels.



Christmas matches, the match box is round and has a pom pom on top like a santa hat....

Hey Skip, love those plastic do dads. My sister finds tons of those and they are great. She has wrapped many of the gifts she has given me with vintage wrapping paper over the years and I always look forward to that. I can’t put my finger on the reason why but vintage Christmas stuff always gets me into the spirit of the season way more than the modern junk. Keep the pics coming and MERRY CHRISTMAS

I'm the same way Trav.
Take pictures of the gifts your sister wraps for you and save them it's so easy to do now a days.
Dam we used to have to take the film to the store wait a week to see pic's, I laugh when people say it's too hard to post on TC.

I can remember my sister getting a new coat for Christmas and the box was so cool, she tossed the box aside so I got to keep it, even saved scraps of different wrapping papers
That was about 1972 I still have that box.
So I guess I was born a hoarder.

Here is the coolest Santa I saw at a antique show it is a Holt Howard and was about three foot tall and lit up, would have bought it if not for the $400.00 dollar price tag.



I give you "hands up don't shoot Santa"

A bit late but I thought I would share this. I found this traditional Polish Christmas scene. Pottery figures mounted on a 16” board. A fun mix of traditional Christian and pagan goodness. The tallest figure is about 5 1/2”. I’m not Polish but it has a new home in my house for next Christmas.

Yep. It’s the jolly old grim reaper. All part of the pagan traditions that still hang on as is the goat head on a stick and other elements. The child holding the Christmas star on a stick used to be a sun in honor of the winter solstice before being taken over by a higher authority. I like the old world traditions.
