    I bought these "sprays" last winter, and put them on top of my large bookcase in the living room. I don't really care for them, and have decided to sell. They are heavy die cut paper, wired, flocked, and with large chunky glitter.
    Can anyone think of a good way to describe them n a title to get buyers to look? I think they're pretty unusual - I collect vintage Christmas and have never seen these. I do have some BIG single poinsettia flowers that are the same type of construction - but older and probably made for a store.

    60's/70's Pop Art style holiday garlands in white/red/silver. ? You know those elf-on-a-shelf decorations? Those may be from the same era, and they became popular again. If you have any of those, they might pair nicely and generate more interest.

    Well, aren't those fun! Someone with modern, minimalist decor sure to love. If mine, I'd do something like this for headline with these considerations:

    estimating date
    including number (if more than one)
    using word "garland" if more accurate
    providing length

    Shelf elves have way too much time on their hands - can't blame them if they get a little bored ;)

    Vintage Christmas decorations will find a home sooner or later if they're in good shape.
