CHRISTMAS POSTCARDS - SANTA CLAUS

Continuing from my previous post on vintage postcards, today let's have a look at Santa Claus cards nestled among fresh greenery in an old tool tote.



Santa looks scared to death to go down that chimney!!


Love the outfit on this little boy. Santa is pretty spiffy, also!





This is a rare black Santa card. Postcards were often issued in series - I have another one from this series and would love to find out if there are any others.






Here's wishing you "A Blissful Christmas" !
