Christmas?!!!

I went to a couple sales last week and all I found were Christmas decorations. I always check them out, you never know what you can find. I found a couple real treasures.I found a few old ornaments that I liked. Usually they are a dollar or two but I got these for a quarter each.
I also found this cardboard art. The nativity has red cellophane on the back so it will look great with a light behind it.
These last 3 items were in boxes with Christmas junk in them. I can't believe they didn't get ruined and I'm awful glad I dug in the boxes. This snowman is an ornament. His body is a glass bulb with 'snow' on it. His face and buttons are raised from the body but all one piece.

This reindeer is unbelievable! It is glass and completely intact except for the very end of one of the antlers.
It appears that it was all silver at one time. Anyone have any info on this or the snowman? I think I found some great pieces. It sure pays to dig thru boxes!

Very cool finds! I remember when I was a kid we had the cardboard church and some other buildings--that brings back such happy memories!

I don't have any info about the reindeer or snowman, hopefully someone else will.
