Oh So Happy Thrifting Day!

You couldn't ask for better weather for a day of fun thrifting. We were up early to get to the sales and were rewarded with some wonderful finds.

My favorite find was this vintage, plastic, light-up Santa Claus. He is 13 1/2" tall and in great condition for his age. The best part was that he was super cheap. Oh I love hunting for treasures!
We also found this tattered box of vintage Christmas ornaments. It wasn't until I got home did I notice the writing on the front of the box. This is a box of ornaments from a baby's first Christmas from 1930. Sweet and sentimental ornaments that I will cherish.

We also found a lot of vintage kitchen goodies. I am so excited to find red or green kitchen kitsch.
A flour sifter with advertising copy.

A vintage chopper.

Several old tins. 

Dutch girl and boy salt and pepper shakers.

I don't know how old this is but I've always wanted one of these straw dispensers.

A well-worn Kraft American cheese wooden box.

The weather is great. The thrift hunting was great. Now I'm spending time appreciating life in general. Hope everyone had a great day of thrifting.


  1. I love your santa and that ornanment box tugged at my heart sweet the note is. I wonder where is Violet?

  2. Cool finds! The vintage ornaments are so special. I'm glad someone who can appreciate their meaning got them! Love those little tins, too!

    No thrifty finds for me today; we drove for miles and miles back dirt roads trying to find an advertised yard sale and never did find it. Oh well, makes me enjoy others' finds even more! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great haul! I definitely have a weakness for vintage kitchen gadgets and tins too, I like the straw dispenser and the flour sifter.

  4. Love your sweet blog! I'm a new follower! (Wonderful finds, especially those ornaments for 1930)♥
