New Additions - Life Size Nativity


Recommended Posts

I've wanted a life-size nativity set since I was a kid. Found this set on craigslist yesterday and the lady held it for me until I could pick it up this am. Got it for a steal! It looks brand new and hasn't been displayed outdoors. Now I just need a shepherd and some animals.  :)

Thanks again for the compliments! I never thought I'd get this set without paying $$$$ for it. Hopefully I can find the life-size shepherd that matches the set for a reasonable price. I have the shepherd with green robe but he goes with my other nativity scene at my grandparent's house.

Those look great. I only have the regular size pieces myself. Have you heard of American Sales. They carry blowmolds and carry the Life size set with all of the pieces. Right now the Shepherd and also the extra lamb.

Their web address is www.americansales.com, the shepherd is out of stock but they will notify you as soon as they receive it back into stock.

Hope this helps.

I got that same set off of Craigslist a couple of years ago from a couple that were moving - I think I paid $60-$70 for the whole set. I was thrilled. I initially had the holy family and the wisemen. I've added a life size shepherd, a sheep, the shepherd's son (TPI, shepherd holding a sheep), and thanks to a pc'er an Empire star that looks absolutely fantastic. :) Still working on life size camels, eventually more sheep. The only complaint I have is that there aren't any life size animals. I'm glad you found a life size nativity!  They don't seem to pop up much.

Thanks! I will check that out, forgot about that site.

I know what you mean! I saw the ad 5 hours after it was posted and thought there's no way it's still available. I inquired right away and didn't get a response until the next morning. I was the first to inquire and she had received several calls but held them for me. I was like a kid in a candy store, haha! It was at a chiropractors office being used for their indoor display. They were only asking $60 and I knew if I got it, it would be a steal. I agree, life-size animals would be really nice. I'm gonna try to build a stable and hopefully get them on display soon.
