Shiny Brites are colorful glass balls that were sold at Woolworth in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s –– and at just a nickel apiece, it’s no wonder they could be seen all season long. Vintage Shiny Brites are still a bargain at garage sales and flea markets, so why not stock up? Fashion a spectacular centerpiece by displaying a few dozen on a tiered cake stand. Dazzling! We have some vintage ornaments for sale on Etsy.
