Vintage July Fourth Decorations

It's not like I don't have enough vintage holiday stuff crammed in the hall closet already.

But what I don't have, are vintage Fourth of July holiday things.

So, a quick peek on eBay, and here are some wonderful sparklers. Oops, I don't think you are supposed to sell fireworks on eBay, but hey, I won't tell.

Not mid-century, they look to be late 70's, early 80's, but... I passed on these. Bidding went too high.

Hmmm tissue paper? Maybe.

But at $125 Buy It Now, I have a feeling this will be for sale until 2050. Pass.

Dennison's Stickers? You know, like the crazy expensive Dennison Halloween stickers? Not bad...

But too small to make any kind of impact in a room. Pass.

More Dennisons. Nut cups, this time. Cute, adorable, but eh, still not enough "wow" factor to make an impact in a room. Pass.

This tissue paper banner came up for auction a while ago. I missed the bid the first time around, but it didn't sell.

Pulls out to make a splash, folds up to store easily.

Price, not bad at $9.99 Buy It Now.

But when you look at it laid out, it kind of looks like a deflated snake squished on an old dirt road.

Not the impact I am going for.

Years ago I bought a big old flag, but the poor thing was so dry rotted, it ripped every time I picked it up.

Soooo, looks like I will have to keep looking out for that perfect vintage fourth of July item.

Do you have any vintage Fourth of July decorations, and if so, what do you have. I need some ideas!
