Christmas Cheer

Here are a few Christmas smalls I’ve found to add to my growing collection.

I have been wanting some pine-cone bodied elf figures for sometime now, so I decided I could just settle on this set of four spun head pine-cone bodied snowmen. The pair of deer candles are in wonderful shape for their age. I don’t usually buy vintage candles but these two with their white spots made the cut.

Christmas Smalls 2The circa 1950’s-1960’s snowmen are each clearly stamped made in Japan. Each candle is labeled with burning instructions and describes them as Christmas Fawn. The candles were made in the U.S.A. by the Gurley Novelty Company in Buffalo, N.Y.

I also found another miscellaneous bag of ornaments at a thrift store. Along with a few Shiny Brights in the bag I found this much older ornament with a very unique shape.

Lastly, there was this small bright green and red box of metal ornament hooks. It had originally sold at a Ben Franklin store for $0.15 and is still packed full of the old hooks. Many vintage and antique ornaments I find are missing their hangers so these have been very handy. Although, I have been considering putting thin strings on many of my glass ornaments since these metal hangers can cause some major scratches in their delicate paint.

    Great! Looks like I can post to your blog again. Glad you all were able to fix the spam problem with my email address, thanks :).
    I love your little collection. The lables on the bottoms look like they are in great shape! I get so excited when I turn something over at a sale and it’s marked Japan. What a cute little hook box to display.

      We’ll see if the fix holds! I will keep an eye out for any Susie absences to know when to check spam again :)
