Ornament Hanger Week

That's right a whole week of those little boxes that keep those shiny glass balls where they belong. I wanted to start collecting something from the holiday and for some reason (maybe low cost and nobody I knew was also searching for them) the collection began and grew to this weeks posts.

Monday's Box

A Shiny Brite version.

Lots more to come so drop by tomorrow for a few more.

Esquire Gifts

A Holiday masonite sign promoting Esquire Gifts and featuring the Esquire Man himself. When I found this it had a small box on the back and a slot cut into on of the gift boxes. There was other writing on the tag section (The stars are not from the original sign) so I would guess some one saved from a store and used it for some other display. Us advertising collectors are always thankful to those folks back then that salvaged the displays and saved them from the trash.

Have a great day see you all tomorrow

Sprinkled with Pixie Dust

What better to send the few gifts you bought at the village than a full size package holding Santa Sac. I was floored when I found this a few years back it is probably the most unusual Santa's Village piece I have seen. The great part (other than the red burlap sac) is the attached postcard for shipping. Check out the little note from Santa and of course return postage is guaranteed.

Thanks for dropping by see you all tomorrow for another Holiday post.

Visit to Santas Village

We start off the Tikiranch Holiday month with a trip to Santas Village. Looks like 2 trips one in 1955 black and white and the other in 1956 full color

Friendly Reindeer and Storybook buildings
Looks like Santas Workshop from that big gear on the side of the shop
Water walkways and giant mushrooms to sit on
What would a village be without a giant firetruck and delivery wagon
I wonder where this delivery wagon is today, wouldn't that be a cool ride at the cruise night.

Thanks for dropping by see you all tommorow for more Holiday Cheer
