    Default Craigslist: Mother Load Of Decorations

    Christmas in July! I am listing 2 entire storage buildings worth of Christmas decorations that are stored in nice Rubbermaid tote boxes (included). Over 70,000 lights with more than 40 lighted stand-up figurines (manger, angels, reindeer, santas- you name it). Heavy duty extension cords spliced in small connectible sections to go between trees or up houses. This will make your house look INCREDIBLE! We are no longer decorating to this extent and this NEEDS TO GO to make space in storage! Must take all! Make an offer if $800 is too high. You couldn't get this much stuff with storage boxes for anything close to that price- even during after-Christmas sales.

    Please email your phone number or call 336-495-8964.

    I called about these decorations and will look at them Friday.

    The figurines are blowmolds for sure.

    Then you'll donate them as one heck of a door prize at the convention right?
    Demented? yes but in the best possible sense.

    Hello,

    Well I am meeting him tonight! Sorry work interfered and I was unable to get up with him last week. So the good news is he still has everything.
    The bad news is he does not seem to want to split it all up.

    Anyway I will be heading down around 6:30 this evening and plan on taking some pictures to share with you all. I'm not a big blow mold guys but I read he has 40 of those so if your hunting them let me know what to look for.

    Anyway he seems firm on wanting a lump sum for the whole lot.

    I'll keep you posted.
    Ted

    Picture time,

    Blow molds mostly, he claims 70,000 lights and many extension cords and they were in those 20 gallon rubber maid containers, he had a lot of them.

    Hope these help.

    I did on the lights but he will not split any of it up. He was pretty firm as well but I did not keep up the negotiations.

    I do know that William and I were the only callers for what that is worth. I also have some more pictures of the stuff in storage and I must say they are in good shape. The blow mold alone take up the trailer part of a tractor/trailer. Plus all kinds of little nick knacks signs and what not. I will post the lights, well what the lights are in, he is using a load of space storing all this stuff when I get home later.
