I found a shoe box full of old ornaments at GW for $2.99. I was just in an antique mall the other day and they wanted $3.00 each for the same old ornaments so I feel I came out ahead. If you can tell by enlarging the picture, there's a tree topper, a few feather tree ornaments, and some old Shiny brites. I love old ornaments! And the dough /trough bowl was $1.00. It is heavy and I think someone painted it, but I still like it. I have been looking for one to fill with all kinds of ornies.
This little angel caught my eye. She was .69 cents. She's pink and the bell is etched with "Every time a bell rings, a faithful angel gets her wings." I picked her up for my new grandaughter.
This little elf was .10 cents and the little green Fire King vase was $1.00. I already have a collection of green Fire King but I couldn't pass on it.
This little plate was originally sold by KMart and it was only .59 cents. I am going to use it for cookies to Santa. (I went back and bought the remaining five plates. I found out the pattern is O ChristmasTree, ironstone, and made in the 80's)
I also found these brand new kitchen towels 5/$1.99 and the little package of brand new sizzors were .69 cents.
I like shopping the thrift stores now and then. You never know what treasures you'll find.
