    fortapache
    (1770 items)

    Went to a Christmas decoration show about a week and half ago. Having not been to this before I did not know how it was played. Everyone lines up outside and when it is time and not before they let everyone in. I had a really good spot in line but that was squandered as I had some bags and no bags were allowed. You were given a shallow box, something like a tray and then go in and fill it up. A lady who got in before knew how to play it and I would have snagged everything she bought.
    After one fills up their box you flag down an employee who puts your finds in a bigger box in the back and then you get back to filling up your small box.
    As to this item it was the first thing I saw that interested me. It's a bit over 8" tall. Just a bit of yellowing going on which indicates vintage. The back is metal with a hole to mount it on a wall. When it is opened up it there is an electric candle inside and yes it lights up..
    Looks like 1960s or 70s.

      Thank you ever so much Efesgirl. Looks like I didn't do my homework. I also forgot to mention it is flocked. Need to revise my description.

      I don't know, is the plug polarised? Looks early '60s to me.

      Thank you very much racer4four. Flocked is good

      Plug is not polarized. I was thinking 60s too but 1950s seems just as likely.
