First of all, I did not fall off the No More Christmas Crap campaign. I have gazed longingly at baubles and pretties as the stores stock their shelves with Christmas goodies - but not given in to the commercialization. Then came the trip to the thrift store this week - temptation!Oh my, an indent!
Under Section 2 and 7 these items were not purchased brand new but found in a most grubby thrift store and purchased at a fraction of retail cost. Yes, I really don't need them, but I collect vintage Christmas ornaments and have been scouring ETSY and EBAY to steer hubby in that direction for my Christmas present. He shall now have to look at something else as I found all the ornaments below - plus brand new Christmas paper napkins for $1.97. I have no idea how they came to that price as this particular thrift store does not tag items with prices. I had to dig through six boxes to find these mercury glass ornaments - American Picker style. They don't even bother to place some items on shelves at this store, it is a real mess including broken and dirty items mixed in. No wonder I love going there as I find something great every time.
First I found the icicle. I knew it was vintage and where there is one - there must be other vintage goodness!
