Rated 4 out of 5 by Generating a lot of smiles :) My mom had one of these when I was a child -and I absolutely loved it. I was so happy to find it here. I have already worn it several times and seen a lot of smiles. The pin clasp did break as I was removing from the package. I can still wear it but have to be careful. Really enjoying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delightful Santa Light Pin! I bought some Santa light pins from the Vermont Country Store a few years ago for my mother, sister and myself. My mother and I wore similar pins on our coat lapels back in the 1960s, and I knew she would love it. They are just as cute as the originals! I purchased a few more this year and will keep an extra one to place on my tree with all my other sentimental ornaments. October 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brings back wonderful holiday memories! I saw a discussion about these lighting Santa pins on Facebook. I knew Vermont Country Store carries a lot of products from when I was younger. I remembered having this pin when I was a kid and loving it. I thought my grand-nieces and grand-nephew would also love it, so I bought one for each of them, and one for me. They were so excited to get the pin!! They loved the Santa pin and so do I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Childhood memories My grandmother would buy us this pin every Christmas. It brought back so many good memories. Looking at the catalog, my grandmother was a customer as I saw so many items she used to have for decorating etc in her home. It brought tears to my eyes as my grandmother has been gone for sometime, but helped me remember good times at her home!!! January 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by memories Years ago, our father bought my sister and I a pin that looked just like your Santa pin with the light up nose. That was probably close to 50 years ago. I saw the pin in your catalog and purchased 2 of them. One for my sister and one for me. We both wore them on Christmas Eve and they were really adorable. That was a nice trip down memory lane for us. Thank you. Kathy D. January 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by So Disappointed :( Ordered this and was so looking forward to wearing this Santa Pin :( when I received it and took it out of the package and it didn't work ! My husband tried to take it apart to see if he could try to fix it...first thing the clasp to pin it on fell off...the nut for the screw was missing (?).I was going to return it but since the back clasp fell off....not worth trying to send it back........So Disappointed !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Childhood relived I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this in the catalog. After careful searching, I found that Vermont Country Store is the only true source for this blast from the past. And it has the best price! This has started a passion for an all 50's Christmas. I have sparked oooo's of delight from others who recognize this. December 26, 2014

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Santa Light Up Pin …

"I had this pin as a child and remember excitedly pinning it to my parka every winter. I suppose I may have had more than one since I recall having it for a number of Christmas seasons. This pin can actually be seen in a mall photo that was taken of me and my little sister sitting on Santa's lap. So many of these items from the 50s and 60s bring back warm childhood memories of the way my Mom and Nana used to decorate their homes for Christmas. Thank you for bringing them back!" - deb holbrook, abington, MA

"My Grandmother used to buy all of us these pins every year when we were little. I'm almost 50 now. When I saw this in the catalogue it brought tears to my eyes. Thank You." - Lisa, New Egypt, NJ

"I cannot tell you how excited I am that you have this Santa Lite Pin... I am not kidding you, I have been looking for 20 years :) It just warms my heart to see it and brings back so many memories for me.. I just ordered it so I will be just so happy when I get it.. Thank you and Merry Christmas !" - Camille Balli, Alpharetta, GA

"My second-grade teacher, Mrs. Gooler, had one of these (back in 1963!) and I was enchanted by it. Finally, I can have a Santa pin of my very own!" - Gail Lofdahl, Quartz Hill, CA

"My parents bought me this pin as a child in the '60s. I loved it. I loved to have it on when I'd visit Santa or going to see the Christmas lights in my town get lit. I couldn't believe it when I found it on your website a few years back. I bought a bunch for my family -- especially my nieces -- so they could have that magic pin I had as a child. Thank you." - Beth Polera, Bayonne, NJ

"I had one of these when I was a child growing up in the '50s and '60s. I was so happy to see it in your catalog that I just had to have it. I'm sure that somewhere in my mother's or aunt's belongings there is an original pin that survived the passage of time. Maybe I'll find it someday. Until then, I plan to wear this proudly during the holidays. Thanks a million!" - Nancy Ferguson, Bethalto, IL

"My grandfather bought me a pin like this in the '60s when I was five or six years old. I haven't seen it in 30 years, and he's been gone for years now, too, but seeing this takes me back to Christmases long gone. Thank you for keeping the memory alive!" - Jenny, Catawba, NC

"My grandmother just passed this month (December). My dad told me that when he was young, his mom would buy him this Santa pin that had a nose that lit up when you pulled a string. I immediately went online to find one for him and was so happy that I can give this to him for Christmas this year. I know it will bring back a great memory of his mother." - Nicole, Baltimore, MD

"This Santa pin brings back great memories for me. It just didn't feel like Christmas unless I bought my pin (a new one every year!) at the local drugstore and wore it for all to see (and wore it out accordingly). I remember how let down I felt the year the drugstore didn't supply the pin anymore. Thank you, Vermont Country Store, for bringing back a precious piece of my childhood." - CJ Todd, Vacaville, CA

"Last year, I was searching the Internet in hopes of finding a Santa Light Pin similar to what I had as a child. What a pleasant surprise to find The Vermont Country Store carrying such a nostalgic item. Everyone who sees it, especially my children, LOVES IT. I often visited the Rockingham store on my way to visit my parents in Brandon, VT, and always loved the unique, hard-to-find products that could be found in all corners of the store. Thank you, VCS, for restoring a piece of my childhood." - Tracy Harding, Boylston, MA

"Every Christmas season we would buy these at our local pharmacy, and you would see them everywhere. I was amazed when I saw them in your catalog and I ordered two, one for my 20-year-old daughter and another for my 75-year-old-mom; she will absolutely love it when she opens it Christmas Morning!! You guys totally rock!!!! Thanks for such an amazing company" - Mark Sheppard, Charlotte, NC

"As most of those writing, I have very fond memories associated with this pin. I can't remember who gave them to me and my two sisters, but I remember that Christmas. My older sister suggested that we play Santa and hide our gifts to our parents in the toy box until AFTER they went to bed! One of us (me) would stay awake until they went to bed, then wait one hour, wake up the other two. Using our Santa pins to light the way, we took our gifts out to the tree to suprise our parents. Of course, then we saw all those presents under the tree, and Betty's Beauty Parlor all set up, and we giggled and "ooh'd" and "aw'd" 'til my Dad yelled out from their bedroom, "You girls get back to bed, NOW!" I'm buying these for the three of us to reminisce about when we get together at New Years! The perfect gift! " - Linda , Fairfax Station, VA
