Vintage Christmas Fair - Chicago 2011
For the past 3 or 4 years, we've gone to a Vintage Christmas Fair that is part of the Randolph Street Market/Chicago Antique Fair and takes place in November right ahead of Thanksgiving. In years past we've always come away with an item or two of Christmas decor/decorations and this year was no different. We bought 3 vintage items: 2 Santas and a new tree-topper Angel.
The Santas have a neat texture on them where the trim is on his suit and while they are both different Santas (and likely makers) the texture binds them together. Here's a close up of the Big Guy on the left.
He's cute, eh? Oh...what's that? His neck wobbles? Like a bobblehead Santa from the 50's? Yep.
And his sack is going to be used by us as a candy dish! He already has candy canes in there.
But does his head have any 'action' left it in? You bet it does.
