Even though my true love in all things vintage, I do have a few other items that will leap into my shopping bag. I collect Santa's made from other things. Huh? Case in point - a Santa made from a wee gourd and a very sweet Santa hand carved from a twig. A big bag of vintage tinsel garland for 50¢, a red metal star for 50¢ and two spun cotton birds for 10¢ each.
A lovely triple indented ornament, a dainty beaded ornament and a non vintage Flag ornament all for 10¢ each.
An army of wee tiny vintage angels for 50¢. I am seriously in love with these girls.
The six vintage reindeer picks, the bottle brush tree and the gaudy gold sparkly poinsettia all came in a misc. bag. The glass candleholders full of holly and glittery tree topper are Etsy Bound. I couldn't believe I found another ticky tacky plastic Santa in his sleigh. Two this year so far!Sometimes, I am amazed at what I find when I go thrifting. For instance, I found these reindeer picks on Wednesday at one thrift.
And the Santa's sleigh today at a different thrift in a completely different town. But, they are almost exactly alike. It must be thrifting karma, right?
My only non Christmas find - a very, very old and very fragile beaded bag. This was in the Christmas stuff, and I almost tossed it to the side, but I gave it another look. It has tons of teeny glass beads and it is all hand sewn. It is really sweet and I am glad that I found so it can be appreciated.
So, what have you found lately?
