Vintage Christmas Blow Molds

I started collecting VIntage Christmas items about ten years ago.  Although I love all the vintage kitschy things, I never had a feel for the old blow molds.  I did pick them up inexpensively at yard sales to re-sell, but I never thought I would keep them.  Then, one day I saw them amassed in my garage and fell in love.  More is better, right?
This display on my front porch was one of my favorite things last Christmas.  They look cute during the day.

And even better at night!  I thought it might be a fire hazard to plug them all in using their original plugs.  So, I just wound white Christmas lights around the botoms to shine up on them. 

This big Santa face hung on The Breadman's front porch.  ("Aw, how sweet" you might be thinking.  But, it hung on her porch every day for the 13 years I knew her - year 'round.  Yikes!)  Despite that, when we cleaned out her house, I brought it home, not ever thinking it would grace my front porch one day (but only at Christmas, I swear!).

Do you have any blowmolds?
