I decided to get out and go to a few thrift stores. I wasn't looking for anything really but you never know what you may find.

Today I found several items to add to my boxes and boxes of Christmas items I have.

This cute little ornament still had his tag on and it's hand painted from Italy. I couldn't pass him up for just a quarter.

I know most people will think this snowman is ugly or funny looking but he stole my heart and for 75 cents I had to bring him home to get added to my snowman collection.

I do have a Santa collection but I didn't even put them out this year. However, I couldn't leave this one sitting alone at the thrift store when he was only 30 cents. So home with me he came!

This little vintage candle also called out my name. Well, I think it was my name.

I thought these ornaments were pretty too. I'll pack them away for next year with the other ornaments I got since I didn't even put up a tree this year. I know, what a Scrooge!

This ornament is so much prettier in person. I love it.

Yet another little snowman was just waiting for me to buy him. I love finding cute snowmen.

I almost passed up this Santa. He is a vintage plastic Santa that looks like he is from the 50's. I'm not sure why I got him. Maybe next year I'll do a 50's theme area on one of the tables.

I couldn't pass up this Shiny Brite ornament. Since it's blue and white it will go in my blue bedroom.

I don't think I did to bad for spending less then $3.00. Everything Christmas was on sale.

I walked around a little bit, got some treasures and didn't break the bank.

Those are some fabulous goodies! You did well. So, next year, hopefully there will be tree photos from both of us, LOL! :)

You found some really great things out there.

To bad you haven't put them to use. It's not to late to put the tree up yet.

Most of the Christmas stuff in our op shops is tacky and you can see why people threw them out. I did however pick up a cute ferris wheel with santa and a snowman and a reindeer. It turns around and playes music and was only $2.50. Bargain.


Wonderful Christmas finds. These
are rrrrealllyyy good prices. I
really need to go thrift shopping
more often!
