Pink Velvet Santa


Hi ladies! Merry Christmas! This is my Christmas find of the season! I found him at the same antique mall where I purchased my cottage picture that's on my blog header. Way back in October, I passed by the window and saw him on display. Pretty much figuring that there was no way I could afford him, I went in "to see" thinking I was just torturing myself. I was told he had just come out of storage the day before as they were in the beginning stages of their Yuletide decorating. Nervously I flipped the price tag - a serious OMG moment - $6.95!! He's in perfect shape, just had to clean his boots a bit. Did some checking, found out he's a Harold Gale display Santa from the early 60's and one just like him just sold on eBay for $119!
Hubby couldn't wouldn't didn't understand why I didn't want to auction him but I knew you all would understand!

He is adorable! Tell hubby what I always tell mine... some things are priceless! Then ask him if he wants to auction off any of his tools, drills, hammers, etc. tee hee hee! Your Santa is a keeper for sure! Bisous... Julie Marie
