Eustis Woman Rightly Known As “The Santa Lady” Posted by Deja Andersen Date: December 25, 2019 3 Views EUSTIS, Neb. (AP) – Nancy Laier is known in her small town of Eustis, about 25 miles southwest of Lexington, as “The Santa Lady,” and for good reason. She has collected more than 9,000 items related to jolly old Saint Nick over 50-plus years. Santa items fill both floors and every room of her home, many of them life-sized and a lot that area animated and produce various sounds. Laier says she’s purchased many of them, but also found a lot that were thrown away by other people. Laier gives tours of her home and the collection, but asks that visitors call in advance to make sure she’s home.
