Starting today I’m shorting my post title to TTT rather than Thursday Thrifty Treasure. My post titles are just getting a bit too long.
Christmas shopping for my booth is fun and frustrating at the same time. I’ve really been looking for some vintage Shiny Brite ornaments but just can’t lay my hands on any.
Here’s some of what I’ve found so far.
I’m ashamed to say what I paid for the Brite Star icicles. I did a happy dance when I saw it and danced even more when a 29 cent sticker attached. Is 29 cents too much? Unfortunately, the elf is a new model from Hobby Lobby.
It is going to be hard to part with these art deco candle holders. I’ve looked on eBay and Etsy and can’t find any like them so I can’t decide on a price for the pair. Any suggestions?
These Coca Cola playing cards in a tin are about 20 years old and they are still in their original cardboard sleeve. I have a similar set from about the same time period.
I love decorations that spell out Christmas sentiments so I couldn’t pass up these NOEL letters. Scrabble letter sets of seasonal sentiments keep selling out in my booth.
These gold open scroll ornaments came in a set of 8. Several still had a tag dated 1998. Is 16 years old considered vintage?
I loved these decoupage angel and dove ornaments. Oh so Shabby!
I’m not sure I can part with this ornament.
The windows slide open to show a fireplace, Christmas tree, and presents and on the bottom “On earth peace, good will toward men”.
These four Christmas mugs each with Santa in a different pose are from “The Cellar” at Macy’s and dated 1994.
This set is in perfect condition which is amazing for mugs sold in 1994
I saw an adorable Santa mug at Goodwill and when I picked it up to see the price on the bottom I saw “To Kathy from Allen and John, Christmas 1954″. Ok, no way was I leaving it behind.
So another BWH collection was born. I’ve collected seven Santa mugs to date and no these will not be going to the booth. Can you tell which one is from “Allen and John”? (It’s the one on the far right that shows red paint inside the top of the cup.)
The three small ones are my favorites.
Most of their red paint has chipped off but I love their expressions.
I can see now this elf is going to get into some trouble!
