Here's an example of why I love my little hometown thrift store. This Hazel Atlas Egg Nog set was there about a week before x-mas, and it was marked $2.00. What??? That same day there was a Clay Aiken American Idol ornament in the glass case for $8.00! LOL I wanted to get that ornament for my sister in law (as a joke) so bad! But no way was I going to spend $8.00 for Clay! Haa!
It's hard to tell but the two German trees in the front are green, and they were given to me by my sister and her boyfriend for x-mas. They didn't even know how perfect they'd fit in with my pink and silver ones! They also gave me the sweet Rand McNally book with the deer!
Last Friday I went into the Goodwill for the first time this year. Yes, I didn't go "thrifting" for three full weeks! I think that's a record for me. I found these little red Pyrex dishes that go with the hostess set, and this cute x-mas hankie!
I also found these two glasses for .49 each. I usually don't buy random glasses, but these were too cool!
These are all of the Santa mugs that I've acquired since x-mas. Each of them were .99 at different Goodwill's, except for the one with the cherry red nose...my favorite!!! Susie (Little Susie Homemaker) sent him to me!
The town I live in is loaded with antique shops. So I visited a couple of them for their after x-mas sales. I loved these candy striped glass ornaments from Poland for $1 each. And I think the one painted with lily of the valley is so pretty and unique. Had to grab the little angel for $1 too!
My favorite shop, Annie's, had great x-masy supplies for crafting next year!
LOL This picture is so odd. But here is what was at the thrift yesterday. Another J.Chein Co globe bank, and I love the little duck planter. McCoy I think???
OK, These are all Shiny Brites and they were marked $1.25 per bag but then they were 50% off! That's my little hometown thrift shop again. lol I don't put solid colored ones on my trees, but they'll be so perfect for wreath making and decorating next year!
You already saw the mugs but here are a couple more Santa things. The one in front is marked Japan and was $1 at Goodwill. The large Gurly Santa and the jar full of vintage cupcake toppers were each $3 at one of the shops.
OK, that's that! I've really been feeling like a pack-rat lately. So I'm going to TRY and cool it with the thrifting! Wish me luck. Haa! I'll for sure be going through a lot of my vintage things and posting them for sale on Etsy. My Christmas items are the most difficult to part with, so there probably won't be too many of those. lol
Hope you all are doing great! And HELLO to my newest followers! :)
