The two weeks around Christmas in our area are the driest of the Thrifting season for Estate & Garage sales. I'll admit that I barely got through the two weeks without feeling a little bit of thrift crave. I seriously cannot wait for next weekend with the anticipation that there will hopefully be a fabulous estate sale. Keiran and I went out this morning and found this German Christmas decoration above. This one is missing the top section so I'm going to keep it for parts.
Last week I popped into my favorite thrift store in Santa Rosa and found a bounty of wool and cotton yarn. The cone of yarn reminds me of bakers twine so I may use that when I package up sold items from Etsy and Little Shop. I so heart that color.
Some lovely mercury glass garland that I'll add to my Etsy store next November. Should I get rid of the trees or leave them as-is?
I picked these ages ago but I wanted to add something from Thrift Share Monday for sale in my Little Shop. These are Mod in color and most likely from the late 60's/early 70's. I think their colors are fabulous.
I found a collection of these lovely speckled dishes that included tea plates, cups, bowls and saucers. I was going to sell them on Etsy but noticed too many tiny flea bite chips. I try to sell items in excellent condition on Etsy so these are either going to be sold at my next yard sale or possibly an Apron Thrift Girl Vintage Sale that I host in my home this spring. Or I may keep a few for myself....I love this color of blue.
Did you thrift during Christmas break? Since I thrifted so little, I'd love to live vicariously through all of you. Show me whatcha got.
