The 18-cents Hills Nativity Set
Since I put up so many little pine cone elves, snowmen, Santa's etc. around my house, it's good to have at least a couple of things related to the birth of Christ.
I still have the box for this thing, and it's pretty battered. It has a reasonable facsimile of it on the outside of the box. What's interesting is the Hills price tag on it!
Marked down from 34 cents to 18 cents – now that's a bargain!
What fun it was as a kid to go to Hills out in South Lorain (especially on the way out, if Mom bought us a frozen coke or box of popcorn)!
Anyway, I still like to look at this thing up close and enter its little world. Actually for something that old and made in Hong Kong (it's No. 427T in case you're wondering), it's pretty nice.
Give the photo a click for that 'you are there' experience!
