Christmas Blow Molds

Think those tacky plastic blow molds are something to be tossed away? You'll change your mind when you see the prices received for these treasures. I started buying and picking up old Santa blow molds about ten - fifteen years ago. The criteria were it had to be old and it had to be in fairly good condition. The one thing I stupidly didn't do, bought the new ones (fifteen years ago) at the discount stores. Now those are selling on the secondary market, usually for more than I would have paid.

But bargains are still available if you hunt the local garage sales. You're looking for folks who don't realize the value of these plastic beauties and thankfully many still don't!

The majority of these companies referenced below are no longer in business, so be sure to look for these blow molds on the secondary markets.

    considered fairly rare

There are still companies producing blow molds, including reproductions of vintage styles (Vermont Country Store). Although some of these will have blow mold year-round, many will just have products during the holiday season.
