I always head for the attic or basement at estate sales to hunt for vintage Christmas. This week, I went to an estate sale and was about to leave empty handed. As I was leaving, I heard someone mention a basement. Of course I asked where it was and was told to go out the back door and down the outside steps to enter. That's where I found these wonderful Christmas ornaments. It's unusual to get a "collection" of like ornaments. Usually it is one of this and one of that!

These are Made in Japan and in various stages of vintage condition. One of these little guys is missing his musical instrument. They both have smudges on their faces, but still so very cute!

A collection of drums. Okay, so some of the drum sticks are missing, but who will notice once it is up on your holiday tree with all the trims? Or you could add them yourself with a toothpick, small styrofoam ball and gold paint.

Last are these patriotic red, white and blue drum ornaments. Perfect for Christmas as well as the 4th of July!

All of these can be found in my VintageTinsel etsy shop.
