|Pretty, cool, aren't they?|
Vintage Christmas was the theme of the day (which often seems the case for me)....I think I'm officially addicted to it! It's so hard to pass up mid-century kitsch, though -- how could I resist? I laugh with Bargain Hunter and tell her that I'll stop buying Christmas when she stops buying tablecloths. I hope she never stops!
One of the best buys was also one of the cheapest -- always a nice combo! It's a tall plastic Christmas tree that looks like a ceramic one. It needs many little bulbs replaced (fortunately, I've been stockpiling replacement bulbs and stars for these trees, so that's easy).
|Not ceramic -- plastic!|
|The snowman is 'mom art' from the 1960s...a styrofoam shape covered with hundreds of sequins pinned on . It had to take hours to do! I was going to sell him, but just can't part with him.|
|Napco candle holders, original box | Napco girl planter in mint condition|
|I love Japanese pose dolls and never pass them up -- the same with Bradford wise men. The little elves are tied together and are (I think) ornaments|
|These glittered cardboard electric candles are mint -- the seller said she thought they'd never been taken out of their boxes|
|I'd never seen these Holt Howard chick salt and peppers before|
|Of course, there have to be linens. The guest towel has a black poodle on it, too.|
|Got these hankies for a tiny price. I think the husband didn't charge me what the wife would have wanted him to. My gain! I really like the Grand Rapids hankie -- I've never seen a city one that wasn't New York City or Washington.|
|Bargain Hunter convinced me to get this Pyrex bowl. I probably would have passed it by.|
|Empty window frame stretched with lace. I like the idea but the lace is too frou-frou for my taste|
|Liked the idea of decoupaging a long piece and leaving white space at the top and bottom on this table.|
|In that same shabby chic booth there was this low table that they'd turned into a chenille ottoman. Again, I like the idea, but don't like the plain white chenille. I think a vintage barkcloth would have been stunning|
|Assorted letters -- some were cut of blocks and magnets added to the back|
|I really liked this tray -- it's one I don't have. I didn't like the high price or the rust, though|
|I spent a little money here! She had great vintage Christmas|
|This little house & Santa was $75! It goes with an old railroad set and gets wired to the track. When the train goes by, Santa starts to climb down the chimney.|
|This fountain was really unusual -- I don't know when you'd use it. The ballerina rotates the entire time it's on|
|I always want a round laundry cart, but choke on the prices|
|Lots of lovely Pyrex here....none came home with me|
Of course, half of what I bought was (what else?) vintage Christmas!
|I got a tree stand just like this (but in better condition) I forgot to take a picture of it, so this one is borrowed from Pinterest.|
|I've been looking for a Santa on a rocket...so mid-century!|
That's it from Kitschy Vintage land...I hope you have a great week!
