It seems I have nothing but Christmas finds to post about. This weekend I went to a tag sale and brought home quite the stash of holiday goodies. Believe me it could have been more but I limited myself.
I found a couple of old Santas. This one is my favorite! He has no tags or markings on him that I can find.
There were stacks of boxes I was hoping to be ornaments, but was somewhat let down to find them to be mostly lights. That was until I saw the bubble lights! Yes, bubble lights, I have loved these since I was a child and remember watching them bubble on my grandma’s tree. These boxes are pre-1953 because after this date the company changed it’s name from NOMA to NOMA Lites, Inc. The NOMA company started in 1925 and bubble-lights were first put on the market in 1947. The company was in business up until 1965.
Also found was an aluminum red and silver tree topper with the Good Housekeeping seal of approval on it.
This last box of lights is my favorite. The NOMA company sure knew how to make beautifully decorated boxes.
Once I got home and took a closer look at this box I wished I would have picked up a few more of them to display. There were probably six more of this box alone. I am very happy I got at least one of them. I’m sure glad I now know a little more about these old lights. They will be so fun to decorate with this Christmas.
