Vintage Thingies Thursday

Made in 1970's.








A 2009 Christmas Vintage Thingies Thursday with Coloradolady.










These are little fold out holiday decorations that I received from a bank. Back in the early 70s, we had an account with this bank. Each year for five years, I received a different one of these. After the fifth one, the bank changed names and the new bank stopped giving these. I have kept them assembled all these years as I really like them.








Trust Santa will be good to you. Blessings and good blogging for the rest of the year.

Awwww! So cute. I do remember things like this. We had a fold-out paper nativity.

Yours are still in GREAT shape.

I remember the days of banks giving things away and gas stations giving away glasses or cups with a fill-up. Just doesn't happen anymore.
Happy Holidays!

Those are cute and you've kept them in such good shape! You must have been sad when they stopped giving them out! Who knew way back then that they would end up on your blog for the world to enjoy?? Times have changed! Wishing you all the best for a Very Merry Christmas! Sherri : )
