Thriftasaurus #113!

Thriftasaurus #113 !

Thanks all who linked up last week & hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving last week had a good one! 

I scored a kneehugger from a thrift this week. This happens once a year. This is basically what I expect to find every time I sift through those bags of junk! Last year I found a gold one & the year before, a really small, ugly red one. But yeah, a knee hugger at the thrift is a BIG event for me!

I picked up these NIP Gremlins ornaments. I love them. The plastic packaging really shows its age, so I am contemplating taking them out. Inside the same grab bag, these candles. My question, not that it matters, is - are these Gurley candles? Thanks.

Also in the grab bag with the kneehugger were these deer. That's the first thing that caught my attention.  I almost put them back, but decided to carry them around just incase I decided I wanted them & upon inspection again when I was leaving, I discovered the kneehugger! My thrift high for the week.

I also got some Chippendale cards from 1986! I cannot believe that this was sexy back then. We have come a long, long way ladies & gents! 

& this stocking didn't even get to settle after the person who was looking at it previously decided to pass. The look on their face after I snatched it off the shelf - priceless. As they were still standing there looking ahead.

This Lefton Bluebird wall pocket planter or whatever.

Anyways, that's it this week! I had a little find that brightened up my morning - great start to a crappy day! Hope some vintage Christmas entered your lives, too!

  8. My gosh, the eighties. What WERE we thinking? Well, I was a kid so at least I can't be accused of finding those guys sexy. ;)

  9. Just love the little deer and all the candles - and the birdies are absolutely too cute.
