BLOW MOLDS ARE COOL
I remember these from my childhood in Winnipeg. We never actually owned any of them, but a house nearby was a crazy wonderland of them at Christmas. A swindler-of-seniors lady known as “Birchdale Betty” created a mini-Vegas on her lawn every year. She later ended up in prison, I heard.
I have searched our local “antique” markets for them, to no avail. If you go to garage sales, you might get lucky. Unfortunately for me, I don’t have time on weekend mornings to go to any, so I find them on EBAY !
The vintage ones are the coolest. Because they are so lightweight, shipping is affordable and fast. I recently got a light-up “Tweetie Bird” and a Baby Jesus ! I had to buy one I call “Sister Woman” , a large, faded caroller in a big skirt and giant bonnet who looks quite ill. Her catatonic daughter is leaning into her.
I do see a limited supply of these forgotten, ironic Christmas treasures online. Get into them now, before Barbra Streisand buys them all !
