REDNESDAY: Vintage Christmas Finds

I've found some really cute Christmas items lately. I thought they'd be great to post for REDNESDAY! These Snowmen are actually something that I got a really good deal on, on EBay.  I'm thinking of cutting them apart and just keeping one of them...selling the others on Etsy.

These snowmen are big, with the largest being 4.5 inches tall! So cute tucked here and there for x-mas!

I'm thrilled with this find! I went to a huge Estate Sale, and these were in the NASTY basement! I've always wanted some of these old trees to go with my Putz houses, but they're so expensive at Antique Shops. I got all five of them for $4.00! The large ones are 8 inches tall, and you can't tell from the pic but they still have their glittery mica! This makes getting up at 6:00AM and standing in line for hours worth it! I got lots of other good stuff at this sale. I'll have to tell you about it later.

This sweet girl is a large planter that I found at the Goodwill for $3.99. She was made by "Relpo".  I looked her up on EBay, and found that she's kind of valuable. I can't believe all the darling planters that this company made! There are lots of other little girl planters like this...wearing different outfits.

I found this large box at a Church Sale a few weeks ago. I bought it for the ornaments that were inside.

But when I got home, I realized that the BOX is really the treasure! The ornaments are "OK". There are a few pretty ones. A couple with indents. So those will go on Etsy. But the box...

ill have to keep for me! It'll be great storage for some of my own vintage x-mas ornaments. :)

I'll end this post with a pic that will make you all so thankful that it's not actually time to post about x-mas decorations! This is what it looked like out of our living room window just 9 short weeks ago! :)

You can find more cute RED things right HERE!!!, at "It's A Very Cherry World"!

  6. Hi there,
    I had to stop by because I kept seeing your cute profile pic everywhere I've been this morning. All my comments are below yours here and there.
    Darling finds here...and yes, I'm so happy it's Spring and NOT Winter. : )

  7. Wow, you found some very cute goodies! I too love the box the ornaments came in! And that little girl planter is precious!

  8. Gosh, you found some great stuff! The planter is darling and I love the snowmen. Around where I live, there are mostly estate auctions vs estate sales. I'd love to go to an estate sale!


  9. Oh, these are just darling! Love the planter and the candy cane's in such good shape. Great score on the ornaments, too. Wow! I was lucky enough to hit a HUGE score on bottle brush trees earlier this year, 37 trees of all shapes and sizes. It was at a really good auction! So, I know your excitement!

  10. Erica,
    Oh my gosh, I can hardly look at pictures of Christmas stuff. I am so ashamed to say that I have still got a pile of christmas to put away in the corner of the basement here. I brought it down but didn't put it in boxes or anything - I've been so busy with this new studio. I will keep my eyes open for a man/carpenter/handyman for you. I tell you I hit the jackpot when I found this one. I'm so lucky. I can't imagine how much this all would have cost to have to pay someone to do it. I can't wait till it's all done so I can get sewing!!

  11. I love the christmas box and the snowmnen. You found some real treasures!

  13. HI Erica, love those snowmen, what a great find.
    I want to thank you for your prayers for baby jacob. It is comforting for me to know that there are people all over the place that will pray for him and keep him in their prayers. Your prayers will be a blessing to jacob and for his parents and our family as well. thank you so much!

  14. Oh Erica, what a lot of darling Christmas goodies you found! Love them all!

    Thanks so much for visiting and commenting - sorry I'm late getting by to see this post of yours from last Rednesday!

    Happy week to you,

  15. It is too early far me to think of Christmas. However, it was nice seeing what great things you found.

  16. Erica, those are really cute! I love the girl in the dress planter! Way pretty! And you are right, the candy cane box is the treasure!
