Its incredibility strange that just a few posts ago I was commenting on how much I love vintage pole ornaments that cities put up on street lights around Christmas time. I have always loved these things, ever since I was a child. Its strange because as fate would have it, our neighboring city is actually SELLING their old pole ornaments because they are replacing them with new LED ones (yuk!). So yesterday we drove through the snow storm and picked one up. I'd say $50 for a little vintage history is well worth it. The lady at the Chamber of Commerce said they are around 40 years old, and I believe it based on the wiring. So what am I going to do with an 8ft lighted tree that is meant to be attached to the side of a telephone pole? Well, next Christmas I plan to put it on the roof of my house, or even put it in the living room against the wall as a quirky conversation piece.
