ISO Nativity set

I would LOVE to have the same nativity set that I grew up with, but, can't find even a picture of one. It was probably made in the 60's or early 70's. Does anyone have any websites that they have actually bought one from?
The one my mom had was a cheap cardboard barn with hay on the roof, and angel on the edge and a star in the center of the top with a light that went through the back so that the star was lit. The set had all of the figures, Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, the Wise men, all holding their gift, the shephard holding a sheep. a couple of extra sheep, a camel, and a cow. I can't spend $100's on it, but, I don't want a cheapo either. I know that I will never find the one that I want, but, I want it to a have all the figures.

Not sure what you are looking for, texasgirl, but check out this nativity set on eBay. It ends in a few hours and it seems to have all the pieces you want.

Bless you Katie. that is not the one, but, I kept looking and I now know where it came from. This is the Manger, but, the figures are not right. I have NEVER bought anything from EBay and never planned to, but, this might be the one time if I can find the figures. I will buy 2 sets just to have the right figures and the Manger. Thank you!!

Cool. I was trying to get a "feel" for what you might've had during the time you mentioned. Good luck. BTW, Buck and I have had great luck with eBay, both buying and selling. Hope you get what you want.

Wow, I didn't realize that most of them only take paypal. Don't have that, don't know what it is. Oh well, at least I know where it comes from. I can keep looking for it. Thank you again Katie!!

I think if you asked them, they would accept a certified check of money order. The reason so many folks use PayPal is they may have been "burned" with people paying with bad checks.

When we didn't have a PayPal account we usually just asked the seller if we could make other arrangements. Most of the time they were very accommodating as long as we didn't use a personal check. Look into that.

Oh, texasgirl, I'm excited for you. I've spent many years trying to "replace" some of my childhood toys. Most of my toys were thrown out as punishment. Sad, but not everyone had a Beaver Cleaver childhood. I took immaculate care of my toys and had an awesome 1950s set of toy Revereware that I would kill for today. Actually, the prices for replacing the set is what is really killing me, but I'm slowly getting all the pieces that were trashed.

Hope you are the winning bidder. It's so exciting to recover something that has good memories attached to it.

I'm sorry you didnt have a good childhood. Fortunately, my mom made my upbringing as special as she possibly could. We didn't have much, but, that didn't matter.
