Can anyone recommend a place where you can go and look and actually buy outdoor christmas decorating items? I already went to Home Depot and didn't see anything I am interested in. I like the vintage old blow mold stuff and there is a company out there called General Foam whcih still makes these items. However, I can only seem to find them online and not at a local retailer. If you know anywhere that sells these (aside from Harrows..), please let me know. I live in Suffolk County however I am willing to travel to Nassau. Again, I am looking for the older type of decorations which are the plastic type of santa claus lighted fixtures, etc...not the ones that lie flat on the lawn during the day and inflate at night.

Thank you.

I think I saw what you are looking for at Hick's Nursery in Westbury.

Try the Christmas Tree Shop at The Arches in Deer Park. They have stuff for pretty much every holiday.

I don't know if people still have garage sales in November but that might be another place to find these vintage decorations.

Thank you everyone for all your info. Thanks for the info about Hick's. I am def checking them out this week. As for craigslist, I have tried there and I have also tried ebay. I was hoping maybe I could find somewhere local to save the shipping cost. Thanks again.

If you see something you like at Hick's, buy it right away. A few times I tried hitting them on the day after Christmas with the intention of getting stuff on sale only to discover that they put all of it away!
