What I Love About the Thrift Store {link party #11}

Christmas festivities are in full swing around here! Not to mention making and packing jewelry orders like Santa's little helper! Busy Busy!!! Did you grab the free Christmas printable yesterday?

Keeping with the Christmas theme I have a couple of thrifty Christmas items to share. I love vintage Christmas decorations. I snatch them up real quick anytime I see them. How about you?

I was so excited when I found these little toy solders at my local thrift store. They are about 12 inches tall. They are styrofoam, plastic and fantastic! Have you ever seen anything like them? I haven't!

This lovely angel was just waiting for my to pick her up. She measures about 11 inches tall. Not sure what she is made out of but the crazing on her face is neat. Sorry you can't see it in the picture.
Do you have any vintage Christmas items? I'll be sharing more next week.

Now on to you guys! We had a good turnout last week. I'm so glad that some of you are coming back each week. And glad to see a couple of new people too. Are you guys enjoying this thrifty link up? Thanks so much for joining if that's you! 

Cheerful Thrifty Door found toy solders too. They come apart. So fun!

So what did you find lately? Love for you to join us!

Just your average blue jeans/tennis shoes, plain Jane kinda girl. Yep, that's me! I love God and my family. Married to the love of my life for 17 years & together we are raising two crazy boys. When I'm not making jewelry in my shop I like gardening, thrift shopping, creating, photography, pizza and a good iced mocha.
