ttt week 13 vintage christmas goodies

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.

Christmas celebration is something very close to many people because there are lots and lots of purchases as the gifts have to be distributed to the friends and relatives. The stores will be usually filled up with countless persons and many novel gifts have been introduced in the stores. This is really a great moment to cherish. The public start saving the money they earned by trading with QProfit System for the marvelous Christmas celebrations.

Here’s some of what I’ve found so far.

Brite Star Tinsel

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.

Art Deco Green Candle Holders

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?

Coca Cola Playing Cards

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.

Noel Elf

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.

Gold Open Scroll Ornaments

These gold open scroll ornaments came in a set of 8.  Several still had a tag dated 1998.  Is 16 years old considered vintage?

Angel & Dove Christmas Ornaments

I loved these decoupage angel and dove ornaments.  Oh so Shabby!

House ornament with doors

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.

Collection of Santa Mugs

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!

Please be sure to come back tomorrow when I am wrapping up my 31 Days of Quick and Easy Holiday Décor and More.  Whew!!!  If you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail on the right, so you will never miss a post.  Thank you for visiting.

    Hi Sharon–great Christmas goods–I never realized that the Santa mugs had different expressions! I never looked at them that closely, I guess. It’s hard to help price being from different areas and selling in different venues, but in the Albany area, those candle sticks would probably go for about $25-35 for the pair. I’d call them green depression glass with 22K gold trim.
    Hope that helps,

      Thanks Diana. I think I’m going to price them around $25. It’s ok if they don’t sell because I really like them and would happily keep them.

    Nice! I love the little house ornament.

  5. Joann @ Woman in Real Life says:

    Let’s please just say that 1998 is NOT vintage. Just for my own sanity. ;) Love the gold ornaments though. You got lots of amazing Christmas stuff. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Bliss Tuesdays! Jo

    Love your Santa mugs! I am so crazy for anything vintage Christmas! I wish 1998 were vintage but my son is 16 and so it is hard for me to make the connection!! On Etsy, it has to be 20 years old to be considered vintage….
