We went on a little road trip on Saturday, I was hoping to find more than I did - like a different Christmas blow mold but I did come home with a Halloween one which I paid a whopping $1 for - it's a TPI blowmold from 1989.
My husband got ahead of me at Value Village, he makes his circle of the store way faster than me, he comes back and asks if I saw that Santa jug - no, I didn't even get to that section yet - so, he went back - what a great find - I have a few cups but no pitcher. I had this posted on Instagram, I knew once I posted it on there someone would know what it was, two other people shared their pitchers which were the same - apparently it's a Josef!!
I don't really think people have been donating very much at the thrifts in the line of vintage Christmas, maybe it's too early yet - I was at three shops yesterday, I bought nothing. I did buy a box of old ornaments last week, for fellow Canadians, the Eaton's tag is still on them, didn't they have the best Christmas displays and merchandise?
I've been on the lookout for Ideals books, they have the greatest pictures in them for SMASHing, especially the Christmas ones. I was happy to find "The Most Beautiful Tree in the World" but I should have checked it more carefully, two pages are missing, so that'll be going by way of the SMASH book. I always like to read a Christmas book at this time of the year, so this Awesome book will be the one!!
Here's a SMASH page where I used the Ideals book, it's the poem and picture on the right. The picture on the left I took last week, after the big snowstorm!!
