Days of Santa - Taiwan Junk!

The previous owner of this light (or "lite") strand left his opinion marked on the box.  For some reason he didn't throw them out.  The lights were still in the box and true to his word, they didn't work.  These date from the 1970's.


I love Santa on the UFO.

"Modern Imports"? glorious. and from back when things were made in taiwan! now it's probably too expensive to manufacture there, haha.

You are correct. That's one of the ways to date a piece. As a general rule, you can determine the decade of "cheap junk" by country of origin: Japan 1950's, Hong Kong 1960's, Taiwan 1970's, and China 1980's to now.
