Yeah, Christmas Is Still Ages Away...But When You Find Retro Seasonal Stuff, You Don't Look The Gift Horse In The Mouth. Status: Fa La La La La, In The Booth Real Soon.
It's no secret, Mr. Modtomic LOVES the Christmas Season. I love the decorations, the commercials, the snow, and most of all...the music! I don't normally make much of an effort to offer Christmas decor in my booths because it's so dang hard to find any that aren't just...antique-y.
I'm sure these can still be had brand new...but what about Character?! I LIKE old stuff...especially
old Christmas stuff. We only put up vintage aluminum Christmas trees. Alas, vintage ornaments are
too hard to find, at least any I actually like. And anyway, we decorate our tree in Nightmare Before
I couldn't hardly believe that even the bulbs in these worked when I got them home! Sure, Mary
looks like she's maybe got a black eye...but c'mon, you think Joseph bought that immaculate
conception story? Only thing that was missing was a manger. I'll be sure to have these available in
plenty of time so's that the new owners can come up with something for that.
Also found: this beautiful ceramic light up Christmas tree. I've seen a number of these before at the
thrifts but they've all lacked the colored tips. What fun is that? This one even has a built in music
box that plays Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. It's gonna be tough giving this up but it doesn't
really fit here in our house. But I do love that Christmas music!
