Vintage Santa's and Helpers.

Please join Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville
Today I'm going to show my 'vintage' Christmas Santa's, Mr. and Mrs. Santa, Nutcracker and Santa's helper. I collected these during the summer at 'Garage Sales' or 'Yard sales, or 'Flea Markets'.

This Santa I picked up a couple of years ago can you believe it for $1............the man who was selling it said that it was from the 50's. His kids have grown up and nobody wants him. Since he said I collect Santa's he gave it to me for 1 buck. He said he knows Santa will have a good home..........LOL.

All smiley and cheery with those rosey cheeks. I guess he's not tired yet from delivering those gifts all night.

This Santa I picked up for $2 bucks during someone inheriting a home and was having a yard sale..........she told me he is from the 60's. She said he always stood in the hallway of her Aunt's home when she would go over for the Holidays growing up........I love hearing all these memories of these items.

Here are Mr. and Mrs. Clause............notice the wires you can plug them in and they move around with the candle flickering.

They are still on the floor waiting to be put in their place for this Christmas holiday.

This is a vintage Santa's helper.....from the Workshop.

Love this Nutcracker, he was actually 50 cents..........and it was a neighbour getting rid of him. He said it was his Mom's a way back and he was already retired himself. But I love him, he even has a detailed coat on.

Hope you enjoyed my tour........and be sure to visit leigh and the other participants at
