This Christopher Radko ornament is titled "James Stewart as George Bailey." It's beautiful artwork features an image not seen in the film. I have since found the stand for this in order to safely display it.

This Polonaise ornament from Kurt S. Adler, Inc., is called "It's a Wonderful Life," stock number AP 910. It is a beautiful hand-blown, hand-painted piece featuring Mary, George, and Zuzu Bailey. I have since found the stand to safely hang it on.

These two rolls of Cleo-branded wrapping paper were available in 1996. I bought one roll of the red and two rolls of the green, and kept one of each. I bought these, in all places, at Community Markets in Bluffton, Ohio, when I was in college.

When Target sold the ceramic village pieces, they also released these Target-branded facial tissues featuring scenes from the film. However, without licensing, they had to change the name of the town to Northport, and the welcome home sign says "Welcome Home Jackson Moore" instead of "Welcome Home Harry Bailey". The box features the Granville House, the chapel set, Anderson's Store, City Hall, the Bijou Theatre, the train station, and the welcome sign. The buildings on this box were clearly drawn to look like the ceramic pieces that Target sold.
