NIFTY THRIFTY CHRISTMAS FINDS

I have been looking for some thrifty Christmas items and yippee
I found a few!  
In one of my super cheap thrifts I dug in some boxes and bins and found these ornaments! 
This ornie is plastic and oh so retro
 The Pink indented ornament is my favorite find
Although this cute Santa makes me smile!
All of these ornaments were under $2

I found the following at the Goodwill
A Fitz & Floyd Candle plate for $1

This really cute snowman stole my heart and for only 75 cents! 

I hope all of you are having a great week.  I still have Christmas cookies to bake and presents to wrap but I'm feeling pretty good about things.

I will be having Junkin Finds Friday this week so hope you are able to join me!  The link will be up Thursday night.

I'm joining with Linda at Coastal Charm 

Happy Junkin,
Linda

Awwww, Linda, the Fitz and Floyd plate is absolutely DARLING. I want to reach into my computer screen and grab him to take him home. SOOOOOOO cute. The other snowman, (cousin?), is also adorable. Great job! Susan

I adore the retro ornaments. Once upon a time, they were all like that.

I know I live under a rock, but Fitz and Floyd were a new discovery for me this year...as my mouth dropped when I saw the prices they charge. You made out unbelievably well!!!

Again, I am smitten with the retro one. I'd like to have a small tree with all retro ornaments -- wouldn't that be cool?

I find the best old ornaments at church tag sales. I always scope out the room for the Xmas table & head there first. There is just something about the shiny brite's that make me smile.

Betty said...

Pink AND indent - swoon. Love the candle plate and the snowman, too.

Susan said...

Oh, adorable! I love the plastic ornament! I love how you can see inside and view the little scene. How cute. All of it is great and I'm sure you're going to have fun placing them in special places around your tree. And I do enjoy snowmen so much, as well.

Have fun with your decorating and Christmas baking!

Hugs and Christmas Blessings,
Susan

Olive Cooper said...

Isn't it fun to dig for treasure such as this? The pink one is gorgeous and the snoman is darling. Happy Christmas!

Marigene said...

You found some really cute thrifty Christmas pieces...the snowman is adorable, maybe because of the cute green hat, or maybe it is the tiny little mittens around his neck or maybe the cute little face...he is just sweet looking!

Shellbelle said...

Cute, cute and cute! I have a couple of those with the indents left from my childhood, but the plastic ones? I think there are about three dozen of them in my mom's stuff. She did a whole tree with them one year, it was in the 70s if I'm not mistaken. She bought the ones with little angels inside.

Merry Christmas, enjoy your new goodies!

Susan said...

I love all your cute ornaments!! Merry Christmas Linda!
