I put away all the Fall/Thanksgiving decorations yesterday. Then while Teen was in school I drove over to MIL's church thrift store with another six or seven bags to donate. Of course, I had to browse while in there! Here are some of the items that followed me home:

A pretty, pretty "tapestry" type bag; three village figurines - Mrs. Claus, a preacher, and a round billboard; a broken old piece of jewelry; a red sheer decorative flower; some bead pins; and a white enamel old necklace.

A small jewelry box (to try the Magpie Ethel decoupage thingy); a larger nativity (6"/15cm); a beautiful Norcrest "December Holly" ashtray; a few 4 cent postcards; a 1930 birthday card; a red polka dotty square of cotton fabric; and a note pad with a little girl that says "Wendy" on it - I have a sister, Wendy, so will give this to her!

There are a few more items, but I'll save them for Rednesday and Vintage Thingies Thursday!

Hi Sue! You found some great little treasures! I'm finding that the thrifts around here just don't have the vintage Christmas stuff like they used to. Very disappointing. See you for Rednesday, and I'm going to hop down to enter your giveaway!
Happy December 1st!
P.S. Love your new Christmas banner!

I have quite a few of those "all in one" plastic creches, too...from tiny to rather large. Looks like you got a great one!!!

Cute new banner! I hope you share with us how your Magpie Etheled jewelry box turns out! You must have some great thrift stores. We only have one in my small town. I'm not usually very lucky there. Must be 'cause I go on Saturdays. All the good stuff is gone!

Love the little nativity! My mom had one like that (maybe 2) in our Christmas decorations when I was a kid.
