A couple weeks ago I went to the 50% off day of an Estate Sale. It was a real digger of a sale! Boxes and boxes of little bits! The result is this basket of x-mas stuff that's been sitting in the corner of my dining room, just waiting for me to sort. So let's do it together, shall we?
****Note this sale showed TONS of vintage x-mas in it's ad. So I purposely didn't go on days one and two. I just want to make sure that I'm given some sort of credit for "trying" to keep the addiction at bay!
I like the little red and silver one with a basket of flowers on it. It has a Shiny Brite cap.
The ornaments at this sale must have been wonderful if these were still hanging around.
The Angel is marked JAPAN and the deer each have one antler!
What were the chances of finding that jumbo spun head again? lol
and more supplies.
I'm somehow missing a pic of my favorite thing in the basket. But it's those XL mica covered sugar bells that say Merry Christmas on them. I hadn't seen them before!
I paid $10 for everything including the big basket. It was a fun time and best of all guilt free!
But then last weekend happened! Dang you "Vintage Christmas Buyer's Guilt"!
I spent the night out at my parent's house so I could watch their dogs while they were away. So of course I had to check out all my usual little shops. The Angel, tinsel, and hot pink Shiny Brites were at the little thrift store.
But I just had a feeling that once I took some of the vintage stuff, the manager would put out more of it. So I went back the next day! And right in the same spot were more boxes of ornaments! I'm sooo bummed about the indented ones. There were originally 8 of them, and I'm now down to 4! They break if you even glance at them!
Apparently I can't walk away from Santa Mugs. Believe me, I really do keep trying.
I think next year I might try doing a x-mas art/craft show. And I thought that this angel trim would be good to put around the tables. I don't think it's very old. I also found an ornament kit to sell!
What were the Ice Follies? Does anyone know? This has the cutest pictures in it! I suppose if I took the time to sit down and read it I would learn something!
The next day I went to my favorite Antique Store. Post to follow.
Hope you're all having a great week! I thank you so much for stopping by!
