My Thrifting Finds of the Day

 Hi Everyone!  Today I would like to share with you some of the goodies that I found at an Estate Sale that I happened upon by accident.  I was driving along doing some last minute shopping, and there was the sign "Estate Sale Today".  My errands could wait, nothing was stopping me from going to an unexpected Estate Sale!

I found a big stand up Santa, he must be about 16" tall, and in really good condition.  He came in a box but it was pretty beat up.

Then I found a small blow mold Snowman, he is so cute and he has now taken up residence on my kitchen counter.

Pixies!  Vintage knee hugger Pixies!  WooHoo!!!  I will be happy to add them to my collection.  I didn't have the little guy with the jester style hat, complete with jingle bells.

A plastic Santa candy holder.  Yes he is missing a ski, but I brought him home anyway.  When I display him, I will just stick something in front of it to hide the missing ski.   Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone!

I found a big box full of old Christmas cards - there must be a gazillion (or close to it) of just Santas.  This is just a tiny bit of what was in the box, I will sort through the rest of it later.

Lots and lots of cute old Santa cards!

Hope you found lots of goodies this week too!

  2. Welcome to Blog Land! You've got your blog set up so cute!
    I hope you'll soon do a post and tell us a little about yourself!
    The Santa you found is wonderful, and I bet you were super excited to add some pixies to your collection. I for sure would have bought the Santa missing his ski too. Great finds!

  3. Thanks for being a new follower to my blog. We certainly enjoy many of the same things :)

  4. I missed out on a Santa on skis candy holder at the flea market last weekend. One of his skis was broken so I didn't buy it. Well, when I decided I should still get it, it was gone! Guess I learned my lesson :-)

    Welcome to the fun world of blogging! Can't wait to see what you find next.


  5. I looked for knee huggers today at five or six thrift stores. They were nonexistent. I hope to score one soon! I love your skiing Santa!

  6. Great finds! Cute jester pixie, never seen one like him before. Fun card haul. Super hard to find Santa & Christmas cards in these parts.

  7. Amazing! A creepy Santa, vintage Christmas cards, a bow-mold snowman, knee huggers AND a vintage plastic Santa candy holder? At one surprise sale!! NICE!!!!! (Rob)
