Description

SALE, was $40, now $30 for a 25% savings. 10 Yards, 3" worth of mid century nostalgic glam! Large amount to find, one continuous piece! This bead garland is so gorgeous. I have some that belonged to my family that I use on my tree. It picks up the glow of the lights and is dreamy. Also pretty on a mantle or down the center of a table with candlelight. Honestly, I can not tell if this is actually mercury glass. I have both mercury glass ones and plastic ones I got from family members used in the 1950s & 60s. This does not feel like the plastic I have, which, by the way, is still very pretty. even the vintage plastic is better than the new. I see silver underneath the red in a few spots and also some spots are darker like tarnish, like old mercury glass does. But these are small spots as this garland is in really good shape so it's hard to tell. One out of round bead, squished, makes me think it is some sort of plastic and not mercury glass but could also be some kind of metal that has bent. I will tell you it is every bit as pretty as the mercury glass I do have and weight feels similar. I could see only one misshapen damaged bead on the strand. Looks like the old string on my mercury ones but it is not brittle, well cared for. Compare prices for this huge amount! If it is plastic, it is very well done. I compared it to some new plastic garland at a store and this is different. Regardless, it is stunning and adds so much nostalgic charm to your Christmas tree or wherever you use it. Easy to hang, just drape on tree branches or garland of greenery. I have used mine before wrapping it around greenery going down the railing of my stairs. Can anyone say, "It's a wonderful life!" The color is traditional Christmas red, not the orange red sometimes seen in the mid century. The beads measure approximately 5/16" in diameter. Hard to photograph because of all the glow. Will not be tangled and fortunately, it is easy to untangle also. I have some more I haven't listed yet if you need more...just convo me and I will do discount if you purchase more. If you compare prices, for this amount, (plastic or mercury) you will see this is a good price. Listing is for garland ONLY shown in photos 1-6. The ceramic stocking, cardboard santa, and vintage green bird/holly paper are listed separately in my shop. I do combine shipping and can adjust if you convo me or check out knowing I will refund if possible.
Such retro charm, Just may take your stress level down several notches when you view it! Now that would be welcomed in today's world. (:
FYI, see Christmas General Store Display below if interested....***

In my shop SEASEARIDER there are many vintage Christmas offerings I have to bring that wonderful Christmas nostalgia to your home!


That's the end of this listing but to get some Christmas ideas for a vintage general store display using some of my vintage offerings or for an overview of the variety of items I offer, read on!

***SPECIAL NOTE:
Each Christmas I make a wonderful Christmas Dept/General store vignette at my antique desk and in a glass bookcase that has shelves. I use vintage seals, cards, ribbons, gift wrap, candles, a dept store santa, etc to set up a display that made you feel you were back in time. It brings a nostalgia and comfort to my den. The glow of candle light at night made it even more cosy and charming! You could do this on a table, desk, shelf, a chair in a corner, etc. In SeaSeaRider, I have assembled some items that would work well for this. Search my shop for "general store". Recently listed items will be tagged with this but you also need to look in my vintage sections of Christmas Decor & Christmas Cards to see more choices. How fun!!
I will do my best to combine SHIPPING on any multiple purchases, which can easily be done with these. Convo for rate or if you don't want to wait, check out and know I will do my best to refund thru Paypal. I am unable to put that automatically on my shipping rates since I carry such a wide range of items in my shop.
SeaSeaRider specializes in seashell/beach/nautical vintage and original art and home decor but also a variety of "other" inspired themes. As a sampling, I have old coral, shells, sea fans, seashell bookplates that make unique affordable art, ship themed items, books, bird & botanical bookplate prints, old wooden letterpress, sea-themed original & vintage jewelry, my handmade sea signs called "Sea Shingles", vintage Christmas & Valentines, etc.
Come on over for a mini vacation! Much to inspire you to decorate, create, or gifts for the hard to buy for vintage and/or ocean lover!
