Christmas Thrift List!

I'm slowly starting to get into the decorating spirit! November was a busy month with my son's birthday and BFF's wedding taking center stage! 

Last week I made a point of visiting a couple of the thrifts in hopes of finding a large Santa blow mold. It's been on my Christmas Thrift List for a while!

Mission accomplished! There at the back of the store I spot it~ A Jolly Saint Nick blow mold. He's waving at me and all I can hear is buy me, buy me! And for $6.99 you can bet he came home with me that day!

Jolly old Saint Nicholas,
Lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say:
Christmas Eve is coming soon;

A sneak peak at my dining room buffet vignette! Stay tuned ~more to come in the following days...

Buried in a pile of dollar store Christmas crap decor I spotted these two free standing vintage angel tree toppers in a bag for 99 cents. Love their angelic faces~so sweet!

I picked up this darling vintage cream and gold trimmed, Elf shoe planter from GW for 50% off. It is marked on the bottom with embossed lettering SHAWNEEUSA.

Excited to find some vintage holiday fabric gift bags. I picked these 5 fabric gift bags from a Church rummage sale a few weeks ago for $1. I've always wanted to sew some re-useable Christmas gift bags but never got around to it.

Haakon is modelling this vintage Christmas half apron from VVs for $1.99 and I found the hand made oven mitts at Sally Ann for 99 cents. Don't they make a nice set!

What's on your Christmas thrift list?

Linking up with The Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday!

Until we thrift again...


  1. Your lucky day - finding the blow mold!! I am always on the lookout for knee huggers!

  2. Love the blow mold! The bigger the better:-)

    Happy Holidays!


  3. Great Christmas thrifed treasures! Love them! thank you for sharing them with us at TTF last week. Have a fun day! Hugs, Diann :)

  4. You're so lucky! I've had a blowmold of the Holy Family on my list and I can't find one. I'm going to keep looking though, I've looked on ebay and at stores and they are around 100.00! Too much for my budget.
