New Year at the Thrift

I managed to stay away from the thrifts for most of the holidays. I did pop in to check out the after-Christmas reductions of holiday items and found a few things at a thrift I don’t get to visit too often.

This Santa appears to be an oil lamp. There are no markings on him anywhere, but he looked old to me. He had a twin but the twin had a crack so he stayed behind.

These William Sonoma Santa spreaders were in the box and looked unused. I love spreaders so I couldn’t resist them.

Aren’t these little doggies the cutest? The sham wearing Scottie is an ornament. The little Westie is made by Lefton and is stamped with a number on the bottom of one of his paws.

This holiday Wilton snowman cake pan was also included in the sale. He was so cheerful I had to bring him along home.

This little box was filled with the plastic bobeches and sweet little plastic ornament. I was drawn to this box because it had a sticker from a small family-owned hardware store in our county.

The last items I found were these Mary Englebreit candlesticks. One was marked $1 and the other was marked 50 cents. The clerk rang the pair up for $1.

For all of these wonderful things, I spent a total of $3.29 which includes tax. Now that’s my kind of sale!

I hope to join the parties at Flea Market Finds at Her Library Adventures, Apron Thrift Girl’s Thrift Share Monday, Knick of Time’s Knick of Time Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm, Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville, Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove, and The Penny Worthy Project at Hey, What’s for Dinner Mom?

I love searching for dishes for tablescaping. That leads me to yard sales and thrift shops and fun, fun, fun.

    Love all things Mary Englebreit so of course I think the candlesticks are great! You certainly did get a whole lot for your money! Don’t you just love to thrift shop?♥

    Great goodies as always. I think my favorite is the Santa oil lamp base. The only problem is that you’ll have to put them away for next year. They’ll be a nice surprise next December.

  3. You found some really cute Christmas stuff. I didn’t find much in my thrifts either before or after Christmas this year. Oh well I really do have lots already. hugs, Linda

  4. Tammy great after Christmas finds! And what a great price for everything! Love the ME candlesticks and those spreaders. Thanks in advance for joining TTF and have a wonderful week!

    Great finds and a GREAT price! Love those dog figurines!

  6. What cute goodies you found, Tammy! I don’t know what I like best. Maybe the Mary Englebreit candlesticks. And the little Santa oil lamp. I never mind spending less than $5 on thrifted funsies since you can’t even buy a salad for $5 anymore. Have a great week.

  7. Great after Christmas deals. I love decorative spreaders too! These would also make a wonderful gift for next year…..imagine if you had all your gifts thrifted by the end of January and just waiting to be wrapped up next December. That would sure make for a stress free holiday season!

  8. Great finds, Tammy.
    Especially love the ME candle holders. :))
