Nostalgic Christmas Decorations
 
     

"Nostalgic", think "new" being offered on the following sites. Although offered as new productions, they can be sold for "old" or "vintage" on the internet and markets; some of them will fool the inexperienced collector.
So be warned and study them well !!
Some are aged or have old additions, like scraps and tinsel.

Advent calendar : beware buying from photo's

I found this on ebay, and being curious for the cut-outs, I bought it. The seller did not show the "Zweckfom Adventskalnder No. 4064" top, nor the barcode on the back, and I thought it would be of the 1950-1960s. So beware !!!! And always ask for extra photo's and detailed description.
