Thrift Stores

Why I Am Addicted To Thrift Stores

This is one of my most recent thrift store finds. Isn't if funky? It is made from safety pins and beads. It has a string of lights stuffed inside. The crystal beads are very reflective when it is plugged in. I have seen baskets in antique stores made like this...but never a Christmas tree. When do you think it was the 60's...maybe the 70's?

Here is another "find". I love 50's Christmas so how could I resist this plastic Santa with poinsettias for $1.00?
Gotta run to pick up my daughter at the airport. She is coming in from LA for Christmas. Can't wait to see her.
Bye for now

What fun finds -- I love retro Christmas stuff too. I'm almost done with my small backpacks -- just the straps and setting in the gussets left -- then I'm done, WooHoo! Have a Merry Christmas!
