First of all, I found a tall and pretty glass tree topper, and this tablecloth in a pattern that I have searched for ever since I first saw it. This is a reproduction of a vintage cloth, but that's all right with me, since it only cost $2.00 and the new ones sold for around $30 or more. Vintage ones - who knows how high they might go on eBay? Too much for me. This thrift store find will do nicely, thank you:
A nice box of vintage shiny Brites, and two strings of bubble lights that had a total of nine working lights on them for $1. We haven't been able to find ANY replacement bubble lights in a single store in our town this year, and the ones I saw online were around $6 for 3 lights, not including shipping.
A nice round green felt table cover or tree skirt, with lovely gold trim around the edges. I may or may not embellish it with some of my vintage felt sequined adornments, like the lantern shown with it here:
I found the sweetest little white hutch to go in my doll house! And a fireplace ornament that will be going in one of the upstairs bedrooms, so that Santa has three chimneys to choose from:
Another wonderful vintage Christmas book to add to my collection:
I love the illustrations inside. Perfect condition, published in 1947:
Ornaments look fabulous inside this large salad or punch bowl with aqua and orange flowers on the outside:
Two large winking Santa mugs who have little blue plastic "rhinestones" in their eyes, and a great vintage Christmas runner or tea towel:
And I'll end with some shiny ornaments, two are old, the other two - not so much, but who cares?
They're wonderful, all the same.
