My first two stops yielded lots of ornaments for wreath making.
As well as some Shiny Brites.
At one point, I had the full set of the Oregon souvenir glasses but Alex fell into the box they were in while changing our air cleaner filters and broke a few. I was happy to find one that I needed at the Albany Goodwill store where I almost always find vintage glassware. I can't wait to find some time to check out all the awesome pictures in the Farmhouse book. 49 cents! And for whatever reason, I have begun to seriously hoard vintage sheets. They just look so pretty folded up and stacked together.
I bought a huge two dollar bag full of miscellaneous Christmas crafty stuff just to get these trees.
As well as all of these Japan marked plastic nativity figurines and random deer. I think this is a complete set minus the actual manger.
I also found this nativity scene in it's original box. The box still has it's original price tag from the Meier & Frank department store for a whopping $2.47! I need to find an angel.
I was intrigued by this box that I found at a Goodwill in Portland. A quick peek inside showed me that it was an artificial green tree. For $1.99, I decided to take the risk and buy it without actually taking it out of the box and checking it out. If you look at the box, it says it's a complete set containing the tree with stand, assorted colored glass ornaments, a glass tree top, and 9' of garland.
No garland, glass balls, or tree topper but at least the tree is cute! I think I will let Maddie decorate it and put it in her room.
Since her room has a rustic cowgirl theme going, it would look really cute in this old metal bucket I found at St. Vinny's, don't you think?
That's all for now. I have been out at thrifts again the past couple of days and have another box of stuff to unpack and photograph so stay tuned! Tomorrow, Brian & I are headed to Portland for Plucky Maidens. Unfortunately, Hanna won't be able to meet me in time to go so I am going to just have to drag Brian with me. Oh dang, he may have to buy me something for all his troubles. HA!
