It's the Little Things - Vintage Christmas Craft Goodies

I've been going out on Tuesdays to hunt for Pyrex and Christmas stuff, went yesterday to about half the places and today hit some of the others.  I got the usual, glass balls for crafting.  Hubby found a basket with a large flocked deer and other goodies.  I could see a couple of vintage Santas, and though 6 bucks seemed a lot, I figured the basket was worth a couple and could be used for a variety of things, so I got it.  I couldn't wait to get home and see what else might be in it--here's some of the stuff.


I was delighted to find this small pink tree topper!  I'm collecting ornaments for my pastel wreath.  There are 2 glass acorns and the metal nativity with 3 wise men is cool, it's one piece bent into two scenes (does that make sense?).   There was quite a bit of other stuff in the basket I can use for crafting not so vintage for my friend, so I felt like I didn't get totally ripped off.

I got the Ray Glo balls at another thrift for 65 cents, love this color green.  There was a pack of small balls in a nice shade of green-blue, but they wanted $1.99 for all the small packs--I passed those up.  I got a number of those balls last week for 99 cents and less.  Apparently someone else started doing the pricing!
