Vintage Thingies Thursday




Another showing of one of my vintage Christmas keepsakes. Trust you enjoy seeing him. But if not, stop by Coloradolady and see all the Vintage Thingies Thursday she and her friends have to offer. There will much for you to enjoy.




This is a little Royalite Jolly Christmas, hard plastic bubble light Santa Claus. He is 8" tall and in excellent condition. My sister and I were each given one of these little Santas by our mother in 1950.

I elected to use a little light bulb as opposed to the bubble light. The light works great on mine, but my sister's does not. In all her work related moves, his light got broken. She still puts him out at Christamas as I do. She puts a light bulb in his back to light him up.
Still attached is the original red electric cord. Again, my sister's does not have this cord either.

I love your old Santa! I've never seen one like him before. Be careful of those old wires! I have an old set of bells from when I was little, and they work fine, but they still make me a little nervous!
Thank you for the Christmas card, LV! I really appreciate it, and yours will be arriving very soon!
Happy VTT and Merry Christmas!

What a cute Santa! And in such fabulous condition. He looks almost new. It's too bad about your sister's but at least she has it.

What a sweet vintage Santa, and he still WORKS!

Isn't it nice that your sister has the same thing and she still uses hers as well.
