The thrift stores around here are finally getting into high gear with Christmas stock. We looked for glass ornaments, crafting supplies and kitsch. Here are a few pictures of finds from last week--I didn't include a picture of glass ornaments, though there were many!
My favorite piece is this Lefton's reindeer planter! So sweet!
I found numerous unopened packages of vintage craft supplies. The older sisal wreaths have that nice thick snow on them unlike the painted stuff they put on these days. Not pictured is some gold Hollywood brand glitter! I bought the National tinsel as it's like the German lametta and it's just neat to see the unopened package. I have my lametta I purchased in Germany 30 years ago--we don't use it every year, but when we do we take it down strand by strand and pack it away for another year.
Vintage kitsch finds included figures made in Japan, each stamped or with label. I found this unopened package of Christmas garland! A couple of the bell cages are out of shape, but cute all the same. I've gotten into the vintage Hong Kong plastics!
