Yay! Another great score in the holiday dept! Love those little ornaments in the box and of course the big star! I've never seen any of those old cottage cheese or yogurt containers down here either. Is the red star a tree topper? That's pretty neat looking.
Glad you scored some things :-)

Musings from Kim k.

You did well. I can't believe how many holiday scene ornaments you scooped up! Of course I love your large Santa head too. He will fit in nicely with the gang. I'm enjoying this post from my Denver hotel. I've been keeping an eye on your IG during my conference. Smile.

That giant star is the best! Excited to see how you display it!

Maddie and I hit one flea market and one church rummage sale yesterday. It's getting kind of quiet down here...

Great Christmas scores. Love love love x10 that pink flocked deer!!

Marci

Wow, what a great holiday score! That first picture looks like a display at an antique store. And I love old cottage cheese boxes. I never do anything cool with them like you do but I do like them.

I wonder if other people would go to the sale and see old cottage cheese containers and odd crafting items as a junky sale. You like things others do not and I am the same way. I think it is fun to find a diamond in a pile of "junk".

*I sold so much vintage Christmas - I am DUE a cache of vintage Christmas - RIGHT?????

Another good score. Those little plastic Holiday scenes are so sweet. I am amazed you only found one thing in a 70 year accumulation!

Great finds, I finally found vintage Christmas Friday at an estate sale, here we don't have #'s you just show up and my husband and myself were the first ones and only ones there. I thought I was done shopping when the elderly gentleman said if you like Christmas there is some in the shed. I ran to the shed and picked up a box of vintage ornaments I think about a 100 in original boxes. A few I have never seen before made in Germany. Needless to say I'm like a kid on Christmas morning going through these. Paid 10.00 for the whole lot.

I've never ever ever gone the early bird route. I must try it this weekend if I have a chance to come away with the kind of stuff you find!

Since the estate sales are mostly weekday events. I don't get to those but if I didn't work, I wouldn't be able to buy anyway. I mostly go to yard/rummage/garage sales, fleamarkets and secondhand stores. I was in Amish country this weekend and found some old jar lids. One actually fit one of my old square jars. I was at Trails End. It's a shop run by one of the families with mostly farm related items. I also found an old Halloween diecut. I love to dig.

Wonderful finds! Love the skeleton - I have that one! Which reminds me, I need to get out my Halloween decor soon!
