It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
The Christmas Season is my favourite season of the year. I love the holidays. I usually love the thrift shops in the holidays too! Lot's of vintage Santas, wrapping paper, stickers, bags, ribbon - everything to have that vintage Christmas you've been dreaming off. This year, however, just hasn't been too great. How have you found it? I found a couple of older Santas, but they just didn't fly. The only Christmas merch I picked up from the thrift store this year was these window stickings below, 99cents (& had been in the store since March!) & a Dam Troll from 1989 - made in Denmark. The troll was $2.99. You'll see a picture of him, just not today! He had dropped trou in the bag...

These pictures of the window stickings are the best, but they'll do. It's hard to get a fabulous picture of the CN Tower from this angle.. don't ya think? And the packaging suggested it was "easy to remove", not so. I ripped the poor guy holding the candy cane 3 times.. no wonder he was holding onto that candy cane.. he was holding on for dear life!

This were made in the USA in 1978 by Spearhead Marketing in Minneapolis, MN.
