Christmas Tree Pins Again

Christmas tree pins, as I stated in my previous post, don't make up a lot of my costume jewelry collection; I just haven't collected them much (or, collected inexpensive ones and tossed them when I no longer wanted/needed them).

So, I've been bidding on ebay for Christmas tree pins, to no avail -- until a few nights ago.  I won!  I won!  And I think it's a lovely pin, too.

It's designer/manufacturer is Eisenberg, and naturally it's signed costume jewelry.  Since Eisenberg still makes costume jewelry, and based on the condition of the pin, I'm going to guess the year made as somewhere in the 1980s, or possibly early 1990s.  So maybe it's not quite vintage.  But it sure is pretty, don't you think?

And miracle of miracles, I won another Christmas tree pin last night!  This one is definitely vintage, as my friend Jennie has the same pin, and she remembers getting it either in the late 1960s or possibly the very early 1970s.  Since I just won that one, it'll be a few days before I get it in hand.

I have a bid for one more, and it doesn't end until tomorrow.  Keep your fingers crossed for me, that I win!

I never really realized exactly how collectible Christmas tree pins were until I was bidding on them.  I've seen quite a few go $100 or more, and plenty in the $50 and up range.  As for me, my budget doesn't go that high; I keep it under $20 per pin.

Well, if you're interested here's a [nmslink:signed Christmas tree,list of signed Christmas tree pins] on ebay.  And naturally, here are a tantalizing few below.
