Saved From The Garbage


Recommended Posts

Well, I was lucky enough to inherit these two blow molds from a co-worker.

The story is that they were going to throw them out, and my co-workers wife remembered that I enjoy all Christmas items, so she gave them to me.

Check them out - what do you think?

I didn't see any mold markings or dates. They have the old Poloron style large bulb disk in the back.

They have the larger long white fuse style plugs that you see more on the modern day blowmolds.

But...long story short, theyre safe and sound now!

let me know what you think.

It never ceases to amaze me what people will throw out! I hate to think how many wonderful old (and in some cases rare) blowmolds and other Christmas items that have been thrown out. It's great that you were able to get these!

I found some at a garage sale a month ago. and the owner was suprised that i wanted them and told me he had just threw out a truck load a month before. really bummed me out they are hard to find around here.

Man that's enough to make a person feel nauseous!

I know last year, I bought some molds from a estate, they told me that

they had already taken a truck load to the dump. Then after he went to

the dump his sister showed him Ebay, he couldnt believe how much money

that he had thrown away.

Dont feel bad. I too had showed my sister Ebay.

Sis told me "After you die, Im taking all that crap to the curb."

Thanks sis.... love you too :)

Some of the prices people are posting on ebay are just irritating.

For those that do want to keep nostalgic items of their childhood, we're having to pay an arm and a leg.
