I don’t have a whole lot to share, as I haven’t been out thrifting or saling this week. However, I would like to share a few thrifty Christmas items I’ve purchased over the past few months.
I purchased the four Hallmark ornaments pictured above at the GW several months ago. These are all brand new and are perfect for my Gkids. I think they were each $1.99.
These two owl ornaments are vintage and were $1.99 each – perfect for my owl collection!
And these two were bought at garage sales for about $1.00 each. I have a small collection of mini sewing ornaments, and these are perfect. Thrift stores and garage sales are excellent sources for buying Hallmark ornaments! I snatch them up when I see them ...
How many of us have been fixtures at the Dollar Tree lately? Count me as one! I made several trips over the past few weeks. During one trip, I was already at the cashier when I overheard her telling another customer that they’d just found a big box of cards and had just brought them out. They were all Disney and selling for $0.50 a box! I think each box contains 10 cards so I grabbed one of each design … $3.00 total. Score!
And last but not least … I’ve been admiring the mirror trees that some folks have used for their holiday décor … they are so pretty and elegant! Well, most of my holiday decorations fit well with the traditional red & green colors; and as much as I love the elegant look of the white and silver, there is no way I can afford to change my décor – although I think I read one blogger bought her mirror trees at the $ Tree. Good score!
Anyway, last week I saw these mini mirror trees at Michael’s on clearance for $1.99 each. They are actually photo holders and I grabbed the last three. They’re only about 3 inches high, but I love them!
Once again, am linking up to the following. Hope you take a few minutes to visit … more great stuff to see!
