December 3, 2012Some Recent Retro Christmas Acquisitions – Perfect Retro Santa Wrapping Paper and Brand New Shiny Brites!
I picked up some really retro Christmas stuff on my recent trip to my local Marshall’s.
First off, I couldn’t believe my eyes when they had boxes and boxes of Shiny Brite retro ornaments!
Tom wasn’t as excited as I was about them, (“We DO NOT need more ornaments. I don’t care how cute they are.”) so we only ended up getting two boxes.
Before Tom caught me, I had the whole cart full.
We got a box of nine smaller ornaments, which had some excellent shapes and colors. They were $9.99 a box.
And a box of six larger ornaments, which I absolutely loved. If they would have had more in this color, I totally would have snapped those up too.
They even have the little detailed reflector cut-outs, just like the vintage ones! The larger ornaments were $12.99 a box.
Also, Smidge the cat loved them.
The second fun thing was this absolutely perfect retro Santa wrapping paper.
Look at this! I was immediately in love. This is made by Domain (in the US!) and was $2.99. Once again, if they would have had more, I would have bought it.
Also, completely cat-approved.
How about you guys? Anybody pick up any of the new Shiny Brites? I didn’t think that I would like them vs. the vintage ones, but I have to admit that I ended up really liking them in person!
