YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU WILL FIND!

One of my favorite things about thrifting, yard sales and junkin, is that you never know what you will find!  


 These cute little Christmas Angels were marked 99 cents each but it was Sr Day so I got them for 75 cents each! 
I love their faces.  They are marked Homeco.  Sometimes the best Holiday items are found off season! 
Like this round Christmas tablecloth.  $1 at my junkie thrift store
I love the fringe and the retro design
I also found this dip bowl with the hanger at the junkie thrift.  It was 50 cents.  I know I will find the chip dish as I see them all the time.  What is hard to find is the hanger!  It needs some cleaning but I was excited to find this.

I found this green canister for $1.98 
I love the details

This yellow Fiesta demitasse cup
also $1.98...I love the handle

I almost didn't buy this but it was only 35 cents and I figured someone would like it.

So these are my latest finds.  
I'm joining Suzanne for

and 

Diann for the first
Thanks again for taking the Friday party Diann....I'm excited to join in this first week!  Please go join Diann as she has a giveaway also.  This girl knows how to party!!!

Happy Junkin,

Linda

OOh great finds, Im loving the green jar far too much as I want one!!! I agree you get some great prices on out of season stuff but it seems the charity shops here pile it all away for the right season and then put a big ticket on it. Scarlett x

Susan said...

Awwww, Linda. So cute, those little angels. I definitely would have bought them, too. Lots of great treasures you found!

I was going to join in on the new par-tay but my items are not vintage. Maybe another week. Take care, Linda. Susan

Linda, those 3 little Christmas angels have stolen my heart. They are adorable! The Christmas tablecloth is great too. Love the Fiesta cup. The Fiesta yellow is a favorite of mine, and that handle is just great! I'm always amazed by the bargains you find. Do you have a baby yet? I guess not, or surely there would be a photo on this post. laurie

Glenda/MidSouth said...

The green glassware would be my favorite
Looking forward to hearing about the new addition to your family !

dogsmom said...

Every one has such sweet faces, you HAD to bring them home. I know my aunt had that poinsettia skirt back in the 70s.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Adorable figurines and what a fun tablecloth Linda! I agree with you, I see the bowls for the dip set but rarely the dip part, it would even be fun with a different color bowl-enjoy:@)

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Hi, I popped over from the Thrifty Groove. What a fun post with such cute goodies. I've noticed our Goodwill has several cute Christmas and Autumn Harvest decor items on the shelves right now so you are so right. And as low as the prices are, they're even better on senior discount day, which my mom really appreciates. I'm almost there, but not quite. :)

Very cute handle on the yellow cup! That was my favorite. Have a lovely day :)

Shore Girl said...

Some great finds! My mom had the green bowl and dip hanger when I was little - wonder what she did with it?
BTW - thanks for your sweet comment on my Memory Board!

Chatty Crone said...

I love the green canister - they sure did a lot more detail back in the good old days.

Sir Thrift-A-Lot said...

You're right! Some of the best holiday stuff is found off season. The larger stores around here have a Christmas section year round.

I have to say I am disappointed that you are no longer hosting your party, but I know you have your reasons. I probably won't be taking party often at The Thrift Groove, page takes waaay to long to load & almost crashed my browser more than once. Talk about a party crasher. And just scrolling to view peoples finds is a chore.

Have a good day!

gail said...

Hi Linda-lovin all your finds...waiting for news from you.
having trouble sitting up for any length of time...

Those little angels are darling Linda. You are so right, you just never know what you can find.

ThriftyAnnabella said...

Great finds - love your little Angels

Kathleen said...

Great finds, Linda. The fringe alone on the cloth is worth more than that! Big day for you coming up! You must be so anxious!

Les Trois Jardins said...

What fun to see these angels. I have two similar ones and my sister owns the thrid one. With my mother we bought those during a Christmas spree in Duesseldorf in Germany.
Enjoy! And thanks for sharing them with us.
