I know, I know.
Thanksgiving is still 3 weeks away.
We are not forgetting to be thankful around here, I promise.
Here’s the thing.
I generally avoid Goodwill and Value Village (where I do the majority of my thrifting) from the end of August until Halloween.
However, once November 1st hits, the Christmas begins to trickle in. You see, they hold all the Christmas stuff that comes in throughout the year and put it ALL out between Halloween and Christmas.
So, I curate.
I gather to add to my collection from years past.
Here is what I have found in the last week or so…
I collect Santa’s and love these handpainted clay molds from the 1970’s.
Thinking about painting this guy…or maybe glitter!
I passed on one of these last year and wished I hadn’t. So, I bought one from Etsy at the end of summer. My friend, Erin, (@tweetpotatopie) told me where to find a star topper (my other one has a hole in the top) and I purchased some extra bulbs…just in case. Well, I found this beauty for $7! She was missing most of the bulbs, but that was OK because I had an entire bag of extras at home!
I can’t pass up a blow mold.
Or, a good santa mug from Japan.
And, this stitchery…well, it practically jumped in my cart!
This little guy is a bank…so cute!
home is…the most wonderful time of the (thrifting) year.
