The back story to this Christmas house pin is a true Christmas wish come true.

Lucinda Yates was homeless in the early 1980s so she understood the meaning and need for 'charity'.

One day in August 1988, Lucinda noticed some colorful mat boards in a frame shop’s trash can. She pulled the discarded boards out of the garbage and started cutting them into elementary shapes, eventually creating a pin that looked like a house. Yates sold the pins to a local homeless shelter for $6, which in turn sold the pins for $10 to raise funds. By 2012 she had sold 5 million pins and raised over 30 million dollars for non-profit charities. And this is one of Lucinda's vintage House pins, made of colorful resins and overlaid with frills with a thick coat of protective lacquer.

Pin measures 2 1/8 inches across by 1 3/4 inches high. There's a Christmas tree in front of the green and red door. There's a bird bath, a lamp post wearing a green bowtie and a ribbon clad window and wreath.

What's behind the door? We hope it's lots of good food and drink, lots of laughter, happy memories being made, and no talk of politics.

Pin is in excellent vintage condition.
