I went to Annie's, my favorite antique store in my home town.
You guys are probably getting so sick of my x-mas posts. If you can just bare with me through Dec.
I promise I'll take a good long break from bringing home x-mas stuff!
Won't this Snow Ball box be great for displaying with my vintage Snowmen?
So first I have to tell you that everything was marked super cheap. Like .50 to $2.00.
And because I want to do a Christmas craft show next year I just started scooping things up.
I was super excited to find lots of little deer!
These will be great in a wreath!
A cute little gang!
Lots of bells and even a reindeer with TWO antlers this time! lol
A medium sized wreath.
And pretty ornaments.
But you won't believe what happened. This is a store that I've been shopping at since I was about 15. And it's a small town (or it used to be) where everyone pretty much knows each other. I love this place so much. First of all, even if only one woman is scheduled to work, there is always at least four of them sitting at the big table by the register just talking and drinking coffee. And they're all "little old ladies" if I may use those words.
Almost everything that I bought came from the same booth, and that woman was there...drinking coffee of course. And as I went to pay she said "Give her half off of everything".
And I said "Nope, absolutely not"! And we argued back and forth and I said "How about 10% off, that would be wonderful?" And she said "You better take half because tomorrow I'm going to put a sign up that says half off of all Christmas". Fine! :)
She went home then, and the other ladies told me not to worry about it because they know that her house is PACKED and she just needs to sell stuff.
So that was a fun day in my home town. I'm heading back out to my parent's house now to load up all of my bins of x-mas decorations. I store them there because I just don't have the room. I promise that I won't stop at any of the shops! lol
Hope you're all having a great day! It's snowing here in MN!
