I have a friend who is cleaning out a family estate. I asked her to be on the lookout for vintage Christmas for me as she sorted through the house. I stopped by the other day to see what she had accumulated for me to look at.
Santa is looking out for me once again. This is one of my favorite holiday hauls...one for the record books in terms of what I hunt for. I ended up buying 3 boxes of goodies.
8 boxes of tiny ornaments with the mesh netting around them.
After my collection challenge post the other day on mercury glass garland, I was thrilled with this find. 2 strands of figural silver glass garlands, 2 strands of turquoise garlands in original wrapper, 2 strands of figural garlands in original wrapper and 3 strands of hot pink!
2 boxes of wonderful embellished ornaments.
Enough tiny mica house ornaments for a small village (marked Japan on bottom).
Vintage Reindeer. Including one in pink.
Remember collection challenge #118 on mica birds? A nest full has flown my way!
2 packages of flocked snowflake garland, jingle bells and metal icicles.
Two light up angel tree toppers.
What fun finds. It was as if I wrote a list to Santa and he gave me everything on my list. I think the only thing he left out was a blow mold Santa for my collection.
He still did really good tho. Thanks Santa.
