Santa is bringing so much to my house that he needed a shopping cart!  NOT - its completely stuffed with bubble wrap! 
Part of my collection of vintage tinsel and ornament boxes ... I love the graphics on these with no big store words or plastic or trendy designer names!
THe old tree stand with white glass lamp globe just looks like a shopper to me!  Do you see her (the turn screws look like arms...)OK, I promise I didnt hit the egg nog already :)
Ive moved things on this side at least 5 times - this is where we usually stack our incoming/outgoing mail and hubby keeps wanting to still throw it there - NOT!
Tinsel boxes - Im amazed at how heavy this old foil and lead tinsel is and that it molds just like aluminum foil...its heavy, too!

Thought I'd share my collection of vintage ornament, ornament hanger and tinsel boxes.  I think I must have been a graphic designer in a previous life because I'm so attracted to the vintage pictures.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy New Year!

I was out shopping with a friend last week, and we passed by an antique store with an old shopping cart in the window (very similar to yours - and I wanted it on the spot...), but when I looked a little had a "sold" tag on it! Some lucky shopper beat me to it - oh well - there's always tomorrow! :)

You've got a great collection - thanks for sharing it with us!

Merry Christmas,

I have one too that gets dressed up for the different holidays and is like the one Jim had posted. Wish I had room for it in the house like you have. It really looks cute in the corner!
