Mel was cruising Facebook and she came across a post from our friend Ed. He had scored a huge collection of vintage and NOS Christmas ornaments and blow molds. These ornaments are huge, some are three feet tall! These ornaments were used to decorate stores and city streets. Ed said these were from a family that had a business where they used these to adorn different locations.
These are farm fresh. I need to clean them up, replace bad bulbs and make sure the cords are all good.
When these are lit they are so cool looking!
This piece is from the 50’s. It appears to be in good condition and just needs to be cleaned. The ornaments range from the 50’s to the 70’s. Ed has lots of other ornaments!
These will cast such great light in the backyard and will really be a point of conversation.
The reflective plastic gold inserts will need a freshen up with metallic gold spray paint.
Ed had only two of these so we jumped on them!
There are quite a few of these still available.
These are medium sized and could be used for more than just Christmas decorating, maybe a tiki room???
This lantern is NOS. We plan to try and hang it out front.
These are the smaller ornaments. We purchased two green and two yellow.
These ornaments are a rare finds. I don’t know if we will ever come across another opportunity to buy such cool vintage ornaments. We plan to hang some of these around our house, and some may end up in our shop. If you are interested in trying to get some of these vintage ornaments contact Ed at (916) 838-7880. Tell him Shane and Mel referred you. Here are some images from the original ornament catalog.
We got two of these!
Cool, check out the cab of that vintage Chevy truck.
