News-Antique.com - Dec 02,2011 - It’s time to light the lights! The Christmas lights, that is. Perhaps it’s no surprise that the holiday spirit is at work at Prices4Antiques.com where we’re seeing a trend in searches for Christmas-related objects. Just this week, we’ve seen searches for strings of Christmas lights, both the classic frosted snowball lights ($29) and a colorful string of novelty Dumbo-theme lights from Walt Disney ($201). Antique Christmas tree stands are also getting a lot of attention, including a decorative cast-iron stand ($82), a tree stand with a picket fence border ($237), and a beautiful Lador music box base that, when wound up, plays music and rotates the tree ($316). Some of those family treasures can be real treasures!
