  1. Thanks I'll have to take a look. I thought maybe it was the name of that weird looking mouse 'mold or something. TED
  2. The following is from the Bronner's E-mail newsletter: "FREE SHIPPING!

Enter code 823 at time of checkout or mention on phone order 800-361-6736. (Phones answered 9am-9pm Eastern Monday – Saturday and Noon-7pm Sunday). Offer expires 10/15/20 and is not valid with other offers, on prior or special orders, or for commercial, wholesale or custom ornament departments. CODE: 823" Enjoy! TED
  3. There have been a few discussions about this. I went through some of the old posts and found the one below. I know there are others if you want to take the time to search. (The actual search feature was not very helpful.) Meh....there's good and bad to switching. Rich I don't know what kind of a search you did there but you get the prize for posting the longest URL! FYI, most of that stuff is extraneous. All you need is ebay.com/itm/item# for example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254482503280
  4. Mercari? I've never heard of Mercari. Am I the only one who hasn't heard of Mercari? What is it? Looking at the picture Scott posted it'll set you back right at $200 to get all 4. I think I'd just get out 4 of the big yellow Easter eggs and put some goggles on them. TED
  5. Wow, a green toy soldier! It's kinda funny that a toy soldier is way taller than Santa! Yeah that "red" has almost a purple tint to it. Yucky! What was the price? TED
  6. I kinda like those pumpkin lamp posts. (I think I'd also be inclined to change to 120V although not necessarily LED.) How much are they? TED The animated Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer is one of my all time favorite Christmas specials (along with the Charlie Brown Christmas). I like the Rudolf 'mold. I remember a few years ago a discussion about what new 'molds we'd like to see. I said the characters from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. It would be nice if they made them all! TED
  7. I can remember the time not that long ago (a few years) when there were so many that I passed up some good ones even when they were on clearance because I already had them or because they weren't my favorite... $25 pumpkin pails (that sold and are still sold for $1 at walmart) yep yep yep... Shipping is the deal breaker nowdays. Frequently the cost of the shipping is more than the cost of the 'mold. Down here in the South there aren't that many 'molds at Estate sales and Garage sales but over time you can find a few. Unfortunately some of the Estate sale compa
  8. For those of you who didn't see the original auction it was a pumpkin pail listed for $522. (It has since been changed to $25.) TED
  9. I'm glad you didn't toss those back when you thought they weren't worth anything. If it's the set I'm thinking of it's worth several hundred dollars more or less depending on condition. I think the best way to sell something like that is to take it to one of the Christmas conventions or gatherings. Even if there's not an official "swap meet" there are always people buying and selling amongst themselves. It's a great way to avoid shipping charges. Of course there probably aren't many (if any) of these things taking place with the current conditions. I think you are in an area where Christ
  10. If this sells I'm definitely going to start listing some pumpkin pails! https://www.ebay.com/itm/254394937383 I figure this was a typo but what is going on with pumpkin pails? There are a ton of currently produced pumpkin pails that sell in stores for $1 listed on eBay for $15-20 bucks or more! TED
  11. You could cut it with a jigsaw. I have cut a plastic barrel (55 gallon drum) with a jigsaw. It's hard to speculate on exactly what method would be best without actually seeing it. The barrel was about a quarter of an inch thick. Since a blowmold is substantially thinner a jigsaw may be overkill. It would be possible to cut a blowmold with a utility knife but that could go wrong in multiple ways many of which involve bodily injury. It really depends on how thick the plastic is on these particular 'molds. Being somewhat of a perfectionist it pains me to say this but keep in mind that
  12. I like the Halloween idea. It could be a goblin or something similar rather than an Elf. I've seen some of those TPI "Ice " 'molds in person. They really just look terrible. You can't see any of the features and there's a severe hot spot where the light bulb is. Putting in a colored bulb might help but when I see ice molds I just think, "Hey it's ready for paint!" In my opinion a white plastic (as is typical for most 'molds), or an opaque plastic (like a milk jug) would be much better. TED
  13. Hi Chuck, Reading this makes me feel sad. On the one hand I understand where you are coming from but on the other hand nothing can ever "replace" the P.C. forums. For those of us who are still here this is still a hip and happening place (even if the pace is a little slower now). None of the other places (such as FB and other forums) would be as popular as they are if it hadn't all started here. You've always had great vision as to which direction to take Planet Christmas. I'll continue to support (and recommend) P.C. whatever direction you go but I do hope that some of the forums wi
  14. Rich: WELCOME to Planet Christmas and especially to the blowmolds forum! I'm glad somebody's working on this. I would like to offer a suggestion. If you are thinking of trying to make a "short run" for collectors then I would not worry about painting or masks at this time. We collectors/displayers would be happy to buy them unpainted and do our own painting. (If you browse around the blowmold forum here you can see many examples of painting 'molds.) Christmas Lights Creations owns a couple molds (maybe more?) and the last time I checked their website they were selling them unpainted so
  15. There's always next year! I'm sorry I didn't get it posted sooner. TED
