Not only was I fortunate enough to purchase several clothing items of old store stock from a long closed local dry goods store but I also purchased the majority of the “decorating” items! These lanterns are part of that purchase and were used to decorate the store – I’ll be listing many more items. Lanterns measure 17” long, 12 ¼” wide (at widest), and are made of lightweight cardboard (same feel as heavier weight egg cartons or the dividers used between layers of fruit). Lanterns h...
Another unusual and very nice vintage ornament from an Ohio estate. The ornament reminds me of a hot air balloon and is gold color glass that is in a small spring attached to a clip. Glass portion measures 2 ¾” long. Neat!
This little tree topper is adorable! It measures 5 ½” tall and is red and silver color. It has a few dark spots (probably caused by artificial snow) and a few flecks of missing red color (storage). Topper has the little extra bead of glass at top indicative of hand blown ornaments. Purchased at an Ohio estate sale, this is not your everyday find.
This is a cute little Santa! Made of plastic, measures 13 ½” tall and stamped on back Empire Plastics with a 1968 date. In very good condition with minor paint loss (storage scuffs). I have replaced the old cord with a new one that has an on/off switch!
This cute little guy is from the same Ohio estate as the other single ornaments we’ve just listed! And, unfortunately, he had some rough handling resulting in the loss of an ear but he’s still cute as can be. Measures 2 ¾” long, he’s silver color and has an upraised trunk for luck!
This is an outstanding ornament! It’s a large silver color glass rose. Measures 3 ¾” long and it has lots of detail. I don’t believe the metal cap is original – it’s too shiny. Don’t miss this beautiful ornament.
Very pretty ornament – reference books list as a “table lamp” ornament! Measures 3 ½” tall and has sustained breakage to the neck but it is covered with the metal cap and is not noticeable. Priced to reflect imperfection.
These Poland ornaments are absolutely beautiful! There are 7 round shape, 1 round reflector, and 4 tear drop shape. They are in wonderful condition with minor color loss as expected with ornaments of their age.
This ornament is very different! Measures 6 ¼” long and has a string for hanging that is apparently weighted on something in the ball part of the ornament – I would not recommend trying to remove it.
This is an unusual ornament shaped like a hand bell! Measures 3 ½” tall, has wire with glass bead “clapper”, and bell is made of thin, delicate glass. Very nice addition to a collection!
These lovely glass grasshoppers came from an estate sale in Ohio. This collector had some absolutely beautiful and rare Christmas ornaments – unfortunately there were many persons in attendance with little to no regard for the delicate nature of these pieces of history. These grasshoppers have been dropped and sustained some broken legs. They are not perfect but are still neat ornaments!

I’ve grouped these 6 ornaments together because each is a type of berry! The largest one is a strawberry and I think the others are blackberries. Some have metal caps, some just have metal loops. One ornament has a chip on the neck (see photo) but these are still very nice vintage glass ornaments!
Here’s another old ornament cutie shaped like a table lamp! Measures 2 ¾” tall – neat ornament!!
This is a wonderful glass ornament shaped like a big strawberry! Measures 3” long, 2 3/8” wide at center and is in wonderful condition but has lost almost all its red color leaving is a pretty silver color.
This listing has a fish shaped glass ornament with a spun glass tail! Measures 5 ¼” long (at longest) and is light gold color with red accent color and black eyes. He has some age discoloration spots and a small chip on tail – may be attached to the tail glue but I couldn’t be certain.
Absolutely super gold color fish shaped glass ornament! Measures 3” long, has red color accents, and a small bead of glass on the end of his pushed-in nose. Neat ornament in wonderful condition!
This is an adorable little gold fish glass ornament! Colors are great and he measures 2 ¼” long.
This is an unusual ornament – shaped like a house with an in-mold turkey at the front door! Measures 2 ¾” tall and has some color wear/loss as can be seen in photos.
