December is here so we'll finally allows ourselves to mention the C-word. We were delighted to print these fantastic retro Christmas badges for the Little Museum of Dublin.
The Little Museum tells the story of the Dublin through objects donated by the public. Today there are over 5,000 artefacts in the collection. These badges replicate a badge from their own collection from the Switzers Department store which closed in 1995. Switzers was famous for it's christmas windows and people would make the trip to the city centre with their children just to see their window displays which featured moving characters.
Visiting Santa at Switzers was a big thing. RTE's archive website has a video of Santa arriving at Switzers in the 80s. He appears to be travelling in a giant boot or maybe it's a roller skate.
The Little Museum made a little video about Switzers featuring the badge. Take a look below:
