Vintage Christmas Glass Ornaments - More that Got Away
Continuing the series of items that 'got away' from a recent Estate Sale up in Wisconsin. First there was the telephone chair. Then Da original Mare primary poster. Then the Snoopy bank from my childhood. Today, it is this set of beautiful Christmas ornaments.
I've bought plenty of vintage glass Christmas ornaments from Estate Sales and Garage Sales over the years. But they were almost always a deal. Like $1 a piece. As you can see in the photo above, this sale had a heckuva collection. Some really nice ornaments. But they were asking $5 a piece for each of them. Too rich for me. I took this photo on Friday and knowing that they cut the prices on Saturday, I went back. And all of these were gone. At 50% off, they're closer to being the right price for me. But alas, they weren't meant to be.
Seems that how I value these is off from the market? Good data point for when I come across more ornaments in the future. Seems that $2.50 is the point at which they'll go with some folks paying the $5 a piece for interesting ones (and these were certainly interesting).
