#368 Bronze Nativity Set

Acquired 2003

This elegant bronze set, one of my larger sets at approximately 12” high, was found at Austin's after Christmas midnight sale! The store opened at 12:01 A.M. and Bob and I, Dorene and Janine were all there waiting for the doors to open, as well as about 100 other crazy people. As it turned out we learned Austin's has done this for several years, but this was the first year we heard of it, and it ended up being the last year as Austin then closed their Christmas store permanently. This beautiful large bronze set is made by Roman, Inc. and while its purchase price was $115, it was 30% off. My purchase price, $86. December 2003.
