Santa's Trading Post

Here are some darling little ornaments I have on the kids tree. They are from my Gram's Christmas store she and Dutch owned for many, many years on the beach in Santa Barbara, California. The name of their cute little gift shop was Santa's Trading Post and it was located on Santa Claus Lane. How cute! I loved it there. My brother and I were practically raised out there with my Gram. She was the coolest lady you can imagine. I feel sorry for my husband and all my friends who never got a chance to meet her. She was a little pistol! She passed away when I was 12 years old, though it feels like just a few years ago. Anyways, these are some of the ornaments from her store. So they are REALLY old! But I love them!
