Another one of our favorite Christmas decorations... This display used to grace the window of my parents' retail store back in the 1950's/60's. It is 4' wide and 3' tall (we added the legs later for display purposes). When you plug it in, the figures of Santa, several elves and a reindeer rock back and forth. The ropes the elves are holding give some idea of what is activated when the juice flows. Best of all (and most amazingly) the condition is incredibly minty, even though it passed out of the family when the store was closed in the 70's, ended up in an antique store, was bought by a family friend who later gifted it to me knowing how much I would appreciate having it back, even though I now live 2,500 miles away from that town.

It doesn't advertise any particular product ~ just a bit of Xmas cheer.

Thanks again, Sam. You are the best!

    I'm bumping this just because I love this display so much. Enjoy with me and Merry Christmas, everybody!
