Thrift Store Thursday!

Once again Lucas had to be chauffeured to Sacramento for his engineering camp. So, what's a girl to do? Shop. For some reason Christmas things were just jumping out at me. I know....stop. It's nuts but, Christmas has already been discussed in our family. Sickening. So, here are a few of the things I found.  I really needed a new tablecloth (Sure) and I was really pulled towards this one. Maybe it's the 12 days of Christmas theme, maybe it's because it's obviously never been used, or because it's Macy's Charter Club...who knows. I like it. Doesn't match my wedding china, but maybe I'll find a set Christmas dishes tomorrow.

Got this nice big rusty bucket today too. $4.99. I might do some up-cycling. Not sure.  Since I am on a Christmas WOULD be good for our book a night advent calendar. 

something ladies dancing...

10 pipers....11? Pipers piping....

some number drummers drumming....

This also played a role in why I bought it.

Thought these were adorable. "A Happy Holiday To You" Royal Crownford, By Norma Sherman. Staffordshire, England. 

I don't even remember 1996. No milestones...what's wrong with me?  I'll probably start a whole new collection now!

1995....nope. Nothing. But it's cute. $2.99 each. Steep for this garage sale girl but, I like them


Not sure what was going on today. Maybe I slipped and fell and hit my head on some mistletoe?  I was not seeking out Christmas stuff. I just realized later that...that's what I got. At different Goodwill stores too.  This is Target...I recognize it. Tag said $14.99. It is like new and I like hook rugs. It matches my colors...I paid $3.99.

I like the warm colors. Will be nice in the half a year!!!!! LOL

Hum....I am craving eggnog now.   :)


  1. Love me a good bargain and it looks like you found several! That tablecloth is exceptional!

  2. A gal has to BUY when the price is right and the treasure too! Very pretty tablecloth! Linen's "speak" to me! LOL!!
    Thanks for your kind comment. Happy Treasure hunting.

  3. What great finds! I seem to buy most of my Christmas stuff in the summer months - especially at yard sales :)

  4. Wonderful finds - It is not a bad thing to find Christmas things now - it will be here before we know it! I usually skim over the Christmas things at Goodwill - I should pay more attention - LOVE your rusty bucket! Great price - I have enjoyed my stroll through your blog and am your newest follower,

  5. What great finds, real treasures!! The patterns on the places are just precious! I can buy Christmas treasures any time of the year too!
