Every picture can be zoomed in on, keep in mind while this kit is new it is getting older so packaging could have some signs of age, storage wear, etc. Below information mainly applies to ornament kits I have listed so exclude those words and what remains pertains to my other listings. Thanks and Happy Holiday's!
Ages on the kits range, from late 1960's up to the very early 2000's but most are from the 70's and 80's. The only time I ever use only a padded mailer would be if it's just a bead kit with no forms in the packaging.
History of the Ornament Kits. Over the last many years my mother and I in effort to make vintage Christmas Trees have accumulated a lot of ornament kits (some she has had since the days of Montgomery Wards). My mother still makes these kits to this day. However she struggles more these days with some arthritis issues.We found these at Montgomery Wards itself, other stores, thrift stores, rummage sales, estate sales and online. These kits are ALL Vintage Originals they are NOT some copied patterns like some sellers offer and will never compare to the vintage originals. Keep in mind the kits are old, while new old stock we have found that almost all, if glue is included, it's dried up long ago. Sometimes you have extra pins, fabric, sequins or beads and sometimes you are short pins, fabric, beads or sequins. Or Dylite forms may have some. Indention's or bubbles on the foam. Satin Balls may have a few frays but this does not affect the ornament at all and is very common. Sometimes if pieces are flocked there can be some loose fibers in the packages or some light fading to flocked pieces which is very common.
Very rare but sometimes from fabric in a package there can be some bleeding to the other pieces but usually doesn't affect anything once completed. Also mainly in Walco kits if you see little Pixies, Angels, Mice, Deer or Santa's it's not uncommon with the vintage kits for them to have a. From what is pictured, I've already seen female deer pictured but bucks included in the bag as example Frays are east to fix with Hairspray and dents or dings on foam is easy as it's almost always covered by something.
My mother said that was all common back in the 70's and it all happens today as well. Hobby Lobby and/or Jo-Ann Fabrics has been our best friend when we run into these problems ourselves and in almost all cases we have found what's needed when we are short on something. Understanding of multi item listings.Some kits have writing on packages, which is common, some have wear, which is common, some have added newer staples as the old staples the kit came with are starting to tear or loosen up but kits are closely checked and are New Old Stock. If it's listed it's my mother approved, any thing that wasn't approved by my mother was likely already cleared out in. Advertising for other listings and future sales.
