I found some great deals at an estate sale a few weekends ago....among some of the treasures  were some great vintage Christmas lights. The best part of the find was that they were still in the original boxes....and they work!!

I just love the graphics on the box!! So retro!!!

I am amazed that the cords and bulbs were in such good them!!

Thanks for linking in to Vintage Thingie Thursday....I'd like to leave you today with this thought....try to give a smile or a kind word to everyone you meet in any given never know when that very person is trying their hardest to hold it all together in spite of their hearts being shattered into a million pieces....that one kind gesture just might make a huge difference.


  1. LOVE THOSE LIGHTS! Oh what memories they bring back! My Dad and Mom STILL are using these old lights at Christmas...OH HAPPY DAY when they invented some THAT, when one light burned out THE WHOLE SET went black! UGH!!! What a chore THAT WAS,hehe! I would definitely buy these if I see them in a shop! "MEMORIES"!!!!!!
