December 19, 2013Recent Thrift Store Finds…and Some Vintage Christmas Stuff Too!
By Sara In AZ
I have definitely been hitting the thrift stores lately and I thought y’all might like to see some of my recent finds. I really like thrifting this time of year because so much Christmas stuff comes out from the dark storage recesses of the thrifts and you just never know what you are going to find!
My first find was this amazingly cool vintage 1950s dress. I honestly do not think it was ever worn a day!
The dress has a really cool pattern on it and some of the pattern has little raised fuzzy areas along the outer perimeter. I know it sounds weird, but trust me – SO cool!
LOVE the cuffs on the dress!
And a perfectly pristine ‘Abby-Kent’ label!
I don’t know about you, but I have NEVER seen a white flamingo before. I actually almost cruised right by this initially…but something stopped me at the very last second! I think he is SO cool!
Here are all of the original tags on the bottom – including the original price tag marked down to $7.47 when it was for sale at the store originally.
You can’t see the label, but this is a ‘Josef’ Santa napkin holder.
And here is a sweet little Josef reindeer!
I managed to find a reindeer blow mold at the thrift store…..I was super shocked, I think the only reason I scored this was they were *just* putting him out. Seriously, he didn’t even have a price tag yet. He was $2.99 – and yes we have the metal brackets he mounts to as well.
And probably my most favorite find….one I almost walked right by again, as the box was shoved way back on the shelf and only a small bit of the end was visible……….
……………little Napco ceramic ‘NOEL’ elf ornaments!!! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! You can see they are still in the original box. They were made in 1960 and were for sale at Penny’s for $1 originally.
The ‘O’ has an old repair, but honestly I don’t care….I think they are super adorbs!
Well, that wraps up my recent thrifting finds. Has anyone else managed to find some cool stuff at the thrifts lately?
