Bits and Pieces - Vintage Christmas Finds

Halloween hasn't passed yet so there is little in the way of Christmas stock at our thrifts, but I'm scouring what's there when I go none-the-less.  One of the things I look for most are miniature pieces for my putz.  Here is the stuff I have found this month so far:


I put a quarter in the picture so you could see how small these pieces are
These miniatures pieces are going to be for my putz.  The vintage box of hand painted nativity figures is embossed "Made in Hong Kong".  I will pluck the Santa, tree and reindeer from the wreath.

I love these old Japanese ornaments.  I wanted to find one of these last year, but it never happened.  Here she is and she's in fantastic condition.  She was in a bag with 4 other angels unlike her that I didn't want.  The bag was 99 cents and someone obviously left the bag in a different unrelated location, it was luck I found her as I went back to browse as I waited for hubby to finish looking through CDs.

  2. Cute Christmas finds! We had an angel like that growing up. My mom probably threw her in the trash

    1. Say it wasn't so! I'm sure to some it's just old junk, but to some of us it's a treasure.

  3. I'm on the hunt for holiday stuff as well. I was so excited, I meant to comment, I found some Halloween lights sort of like yours. Mine are ghosts with a pumpkin head, I was so excited. Anyway, the thrifts here are just bursting with Christmas stuff and it;s actually selling, because each time i go back the stock is different.

    1. Congratulations on your Halloween light find! They sound really cute! After writing that post, I peeked at Halloween stuff a few times. Ended up coming home with a strand that has candy corns and Jack-o-Lanterns, hubby guilted me into it--he LOVES holiday lights. I'm glad I did though, when they are lit up they are so cheery!
