The weather has FINALLY cooled down enough to feel a little like Fall and that puts me in the Christmas mood even more than I usually am. A recent visit to the thrift store netted some great finds!
WARNING: DISASTER AREA AHEAD...
This is what the Christmas section looks like at our Salvation Army YEAR ROUND! Its so exhasting to find anything in that mess. I spent about 15 digging around and found the ONE thing worth digging for...
Can you see what is in this baggie marked .25?
Here is a better look! One tiny strand of red mercury glass garland. SCORE! :)
Here is a view of my cart. Christmas stuff, La La Loopsy, bark cloth, metal doll house, plastic flowers, vintage photo album, etc. It was a good day.
Here are a few more finds from this weeks thrifting/yard sales.
A pair of Parma paper mache' choir boy candle holders.
Another paper mache' angel, some foil craft ornaments, globe in acrylic (don't know why I love these but I can never pass them up!) and some tart tins for crafting.
Look at this groovy dancing girl! I love her! I'll bet she came with an equally groovy dance partner but he was no where to be found. I think he got one of these invitations for cocktails at a more hip shindig and split the scene, man.
Melted plastic popcorn candles and a bad view of the "lace" valentine table runner that I got for a quarter. It will go to the booth.
Lastly, a good pile of pink plastic bead garland for my tree or for crafting. Of course, I found this after I had spent $6 on pink beading at Hobby Lobby... Oh well. Now I have PLENTY! ;)
Hope your thrifting and holiday crafting is PRODUCTIVE! :)
