Another Memory.... I Had these on my coats growing up & now they were on the coats of my Grandchildren.....would Love to see you find this in the Rudolph version too !! January 5, 2014
He's a hit with everyone. My mother had one of these when I was a kid and it fascinated me. So, when I saw this I just had to get one. I wish I would have gotten a lot more of them to give as gifts. December 31, 2013
Just like the original I saw this beautiful pin and remembered having one just like it when I was a child. I ordered it and am so glad that I did! It is exactly like the one I had many years ago. I have had several people stop me on the street and in the grocery store and ask where I got it. Of course I tell everyone "Vermont Country Store"!!!!! Thank you for bringing this cute pin back again!!!! December 29, 2013
Glad I finally bought it! I had been looking at this pin for a few years, and finally decided to order it; it's worth every penny. It lights up when I pull the bell string, and is bigger in the width than other pins. It is very good quality, and look forward to wearing it for many years to come; thanks VCS! December 27, 2013
Memories Had one of these over 50 years ago December 11, 2013
A bit of nostalgia I had to buy this for my sister because we had these when we were kids (not so much any more). I also bought one for me. One of the pins lit up as expected but not the other. I opened it and checked the insides. This time when I pulled the string, it lit up. When I put the cover back on, it worked fine so....... December 10, 2013
Takes Me Back I had this pin as a little girl and can't wait to wear this and see my grandchildren's expression!! October 30, 2013
Cool pin just like the classic one I purchased this pin for my mom. I still have her original one from the 50's, although the light has long since gone dead. I thought it would be cool to give her a new one that worked again. It is the exact same design as the original. When she opened the gift, and pulled the string to light the nose, the string broke immediately. She was very disappointed. My husband took it home, took it apart, and replaced the string with a small piece of kite string. That works. My recommendation to anyone buying this would be to make sure the string is not weak/old before you try to use it. January 3, 2013

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Santa Light 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
