friday’s finds

for this week’s friday’s finds, i went on a hunt for vintage xmas paraphernalia…as i’m participating in ellia’s vintage christmas swap the tinsel tree is not old, but it looks kinda retro-y, don’t you think? i bought that tree (on sale) at hobby lobby. i found these vintage pink glass & satin ornaments (on the left) as well as this cute light-up angel (from the 80s, i think), sweet little deer figurine & these cute retro magnets from one of my local haunts, carousel consignments …the other ornaments & the star topper (on the right) are new (also bought on sale at hobby lobby), but i thought they would go with this funky silver tree…hope my swap partner will like this!
then i found these neat vintage-y looking santas (also i believe from the 80s)…i found these (& the following items below) at another of my fave local haunts, campus antiques mall…
& struck the mother lode on these vintage holiday postcards (many of them were a mere .25 cents!!!!)…umm, you betcha those creative juices are flowing!
& just for my sis looney, who laments that she never finds any cool vintage-y stuff (she’s participating in ellia’s swap too)>>>there you go my dear!!!!

what are your cool finds this week? oh please do show & tell>>>either by leaving a comment with your link or posting your treasures in flickr. Posted by Picasa
