Plucky Prizes and Other Vintage Christmas

Hi Everyone!  Hanna here.  Last Friday I made it to Portland for the Plucky Maidens Holiday Junk Fest.  It definitely got me even more excited for the holidays.  I have never made it to the Holiday show, and was happily greeted with more vintage Christmas than I could have ever imagined.  It was pretty sad going to Plucky without Erica, but our plans just didn't work out.

First I will share the few Christmas items I've managed to thrift in the last few weeks.  It's not a lot, but I'm always happy to add to my little Christmas collection.
My Santa mug collection continues to grow.  I also found a sweet little santa tucked away in one of the crazy grab bags at Goodwill.  The elf mug helped me complete a second full set.
This kitschy madness I posted on Instagram last week and I'm still smiling about it.  Who knew that little white deer lived inside a mushroom house and that Santa delivered them gifts!?!  The Gnomes were in pieces at Goodwill but a little glue gun action had them back to normal in no time.  I've been wanting them for a long time, so I was happy to finally get to bring a few home.
 I of course brought home some magical craftiness from Magpie Ethel's booth at Plucky.  This sweet little candy cane elf is one of her awesome creations.  I love that the base is a box.  I can hide a note inside about memories of this Christmas.  The two Santas came from other booths, now I just need some candles for them to climb.
I really practiced restraint at Magpie's.  Probably because I know I will be seeing her again in a few weeks at Crafty Wonderland.  I now have a big deer to add to my herd and a snowman.  When I brought him home I realized he is the only snowman I have, so I better get working on a collection!  I found the Holt Howard pitcher at another booth and was pretty excited to bring him home.  I can't resist a winking Santa face like that!

Well, I'm about to head off to my 20 week ultrasound, woohoo! I'm half way there!  I also finally get to see Erica on Friday, it has been way too long!  I hope everyone has a safe, cozy, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Always a Pleasure!


  1. Awww! I want that HH pitcher so bad! Some day I will find one! You brought home so many treasures! And I love what you chose from Magpie! Enjoy your ultrasound! I bet it's a magical experience! :)

  2. Only one snowman? Am sure more will be coming your way. So good to see you and see that little baby bump. Excited for that little one! Happy Turkey Day

  3. Heck yeah, you need to work on that snowman collection now! I am amazed at the deer/Santa/mushroom awesomeness. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  4. Don't you just love a vintage Christmas!? I have 5 mugs now. Check out my last couple of posts. I'm enjoying looking at them daily.

  5. That deer is so sweet! I bought several this year to "sell" in my antique mall booth but vintage deer are growing on me and like many of the things I buy for my booth, I end up keeping!
