Ok, just want to know if anyone has ever seen these before.  I got off work this morning at 4AM and pulled in our driveway to find them leaning against the garage wall.  I came inside confused and asked my wife if she knew anything about them.  She told me this elderly lady stopped by that afternoon and asked if we wanted a few extra decorations.  She told her that her husband had passed away recently, and that she was unable to decorate anymore.  She said she enjoyed coming by and seeing our light display, and that she does so frequently.  So, I went back out to the garage, set them up, and plugged them in to see how they were.  The Mickey riding the reindeer was half burned out, but the Santa and Pluto were perfect.  I went right to work on Mickey, and after an hour had him looking like new again.  I will have these out in the display, proudly, tomorrow through New Years Night, and for the rest of the time I set up our display to honor her and her late husband.  You just never know how your display touches someones life.  Pretty good feeling to know you bring someone who lost a loved one, especially their spouse, some peace and joy!  Just Wow.   Anyway, if anyone knows anything about these decorations, especially how old they might be, I would love to know.

And these particular ones have the hard, yet flexible and transparent plastic coating around the lights and frame, and they are color coordinated with the lights.   Twist ties were used to close all the plastic sections, and even they were the same color as the bulbs and plastic coating.

We bought an old amusement park that hadn't been open since the early 70's. Nothing left the buildings are falling down. We cleaned up and put in a miniature railroad and opened to the public 3 years ago. This year the public donated over 10,000 lights and many decorations. Next year were planning on being open 17 days for Christmas and 50,000 lights. The township just took us off the tax rolls for being a non profit and gave back nearly 3 years in taxes because we are doing something great for the community.

 

You just never know what will happen during the Christmas season

That is so cool Mikell!!,

I wish I had my own amusement park but a vintage ride one. Looking at your pics,there is a birdhouse with some figures on the left tree? Whats up there?  And if you need another mickey. I have a wire framed one for sale. Needs a good home and would look great with your new figures!. I have some of my grandparents lights who are gone now and put them up for memories and in honor of them.

 

Love it!!!
