My business, Town Hall Trinkets, LLC, is a resale business. I specialize in estate "buy outs" - that is where a majority of my inventory comes from. After 25 years of doing this, you can imagine I have come across some pretty neat items.
As I was digging for some Christmas resale in my storage pole building (54' x 45'), I came across a box full of cool items. I must have packed all the Christmas I "liked" in one box over the years, because I really like all of it. After looking at the items, I was thinking about all the different decades of Christmas decorations.
I remember all the shiny brite ornaments, silver "tinsel," spay cans of flocking snow, felt cardinals (my mom made), these and other handmade ones on our tree. As I sifted through the box, I was thinking how many Christmas trees did these ornaments adorn? What memories were made by their just hanging there? This is part of my hoarding problem, I tend to personalize items that weren't even mine.
So, this had me thinking, what was your favorite childhood ornament or memory of a tree? Please leave a comment and let me know.
