Lookie What I Found Today! -- December 20th Christmas Finds

The vintage Christmas search continues!  We only looked locally today, I suspect we'll hit our neighboring town tomorrow before the traffic gets bad.  Here we go!

So much cool crafting stuff! First, let me get this out of the way.  I bought the reindeer at a multi-vendor spot, it cost me 5 bucks!  Ouch!  But hubby said "get it" with the kind of tone like, if  you don't I will.  It's in much better shape than the current one I have on my wreath, so I'm gonna swap it.  More gold picks!  Yay!  I love the unopened package of pastel pine cones, I don't want to open it!  The silver paper with graphic is so neat!  There is glitter on the pine cones too!  The chenille angels, snowman and the sugared bells came in a bag with more stuff in the next picture for $1!  That was a good deal.

Some super awesome stuff that I couldn't believe I found today.  Another red velvet reindeer!  I so wanted another one of these red guys!  This one has antlers!  The 3 candy canes and red chenille angel was in the $1 dollar bag.  The little putz house was $1!  Interestingly it is made in Ghana.  I have to see what I can find out about it.  A great glass Santa ornament and a lantern which I think brings me up to 4 of those.  And lastly, a pixie aka knee hugger!  I have finally found one!  And one the size I wanted, a small one that I can use on the mini wreath I'm planning to make.  He was priced high, $5, fortunately I had a 20% off coupon.

My hubby found this ceramic Santa head with a blinking eye--I don't know what you call the double image on plastic, but when you move him it goes from looking open to closed.  We think he likely had a lid, I will use him as a base for a decorated bottle brush tree.  He has a label, but it's too rubbed off to read, but it is stamped Japan.  Also got these figural glass light bulbs!  I'm sure they aren't old, but they are neato!

Well, better get onto other things before it gets any later.  Just had to come share the latest goodies we found.

  2. Ahhh! You're killin me with all these amazing finds! I love the lights. And I think it's great that they aren't old because the old ones are worth quite a bit. This way you can craft with them and not care! I broke down and bought a few things the other day. I'll post about it soon!
    Have a great day Evie!

    1. I'll have some time to enjoy those cones in the package until I actually can use them. I'm thinking about how I can craft with those paper package headers...I've got some others as well...hum...sounds like another project!
