I almost forgot about the Christmas sale that was happening at the church down the road. Lucky for me, my Google calendar didn’t fail me. As I set out on foot in the snow my eyes bulged when I approached the church. There was a line up snaking down the sidewalk. “Must be a good sign that there will be Christmas treasures to be found,” I thought. I met a cute old lady in line, “Have you ever been to the sale?” she inquired. “No, but it seems to be popular.” And as the line started moving she said, “Well, I hope you find what you’re looking for.”
I’m happy to say, that yes, I did. A few great Christmas items for some crafty goodness and a few decorations were found, all for the lovely price of $8.50!
Glass ornaments from Eatons $1.00
A few sheets of wrapping paper .25c
Cute wooden garland $3.00
Wire basket for gifting $1.00
I might take it apart and use some of the cute people for a craft project.
Crafty Christmas trees $2.25
This random selection of mini ornaments was $1.00.
That mini cardinal is a tad scary!
I also found this adorable book this week at a book sale where I work. I knew it was vintage from the publishing date, and thought that it might be worth a little more than the $2.00 I paid for it. I checked on ebay when I got back to my office and saw the same book selling for around $35.00!
What nifty thrifty finds did you manage to nab!?
