Oh What Fun it is to Thrift...

 
Wow, did I have a fun week!  After being stuck inside sick all last week, it was fun to get out, and I found some great things!
 
I have discovered a new thrift I love.  Well, it's not new, but it's a Humane Society thrift that used to have cats inside.  I could not stand the smell and thus, I never went it.  They have removed the cats and there are many wonderful things at great prices!  This Aladdin Thermos was just $1.99.  It's my first Aladdin because the one's I always see are plastic. 

 
I was thrilled with this cake carrier from England for $1.00.  I've never seen one like this

 
Snowflake space savers are following me!  I now have a collection of three.  I wonder if people are cleaning out Christmas stuff and these are in with it?  Goodwill $5.99

 
I am sooooo thrilled about these cuties.  I have wanted a knee hugger and I've never found one...well I found 2!  I was going to wait until my birthday next month and break down and buy one on Etsy.  These were waiting for me at Goodwill for only 99 cents each!


 
The Humane Society Thrift had a Christmas Extravaganza.  Was it ever!  I have NEVER seen anything like it.  The ENTIRE store was Christmas.  It was on a Monday (Hubbies day off) so he took me.  There was a line outside the door!  I got these salt and pepper snow people from my childhood. $1.99

 
A Christmas pin and hankie $1

And this darling postcard!  My hubby also got a fabulous Christmas sweater for our ugly Christmas sweater party.


Then I visited a favorite thrift on the way to visit a friend.  This tray is fabulous!  $1.99
 


And I love these tags, still in the package .59 cents
 
OK, now for the cream of the crop, the cat's meow, the icing on the cake....
 
There is a cute little antique store down town with super reasonable prices.  I saw this behind the desk not yet priced.  I asked her to call me when she priced it.  Oh, my $14!  I'm spending birthday $ early on this one.  They are not mint, but the box is...and I've never seen anything like it.  OH MY...
 


She threw in the little deer.  This is my favorite Christmas find this year!

I love it all, Stacy! Isn't it so fun to find vintage Christmas at the thrifts? I've finally be getting lucky finding stuff. It took forever for the stores to get their stuff out.

That candle set is awesome! Maddie found the same set for me at an estate sale last year. I love the box!

Wow! I kept scrolling down and it just got better and better! LOVE that cake carrier and I'm so happy that you now have a couple knee huggers! I don't have that set of candles, but I know they are reproducing them. Great find!
