New Thrift store finds

 Sometimes the Thrift store holds so many treasures, and this little trip, I got lucky.  As I walked in, I decided to go to the Christmas section to look for a Vintage Santa cup.  (I have a collection of these and they are all different)  Just as I rounded the corner, there he was.  All worn and perfect!
 Then I happened on a big bag full of old cookie cutters, and I was especially attracted to the vintage one with the green handle.  And also in this bag was 10 tart tins to use for ornaments I will be making.
All of this was $1.00  I was tickled pink!


 a whole package of vintage velvet poinsettia leaves.
 Taking the yarn off of these spools will afford some crafty items for something cool!
 Oval frames are always good to pick up because you don't see them lots.
and I also found this board with these cool pegs, so I can either paint it or take them off and use them elsewhere.   I know these items don't look the very most vintagie to begin with, but if you use your imagination, SOMETHING SPECIAL can come along!

Looks like you got some nice finds! Use to have several of the wooden yarn spools and gave them to daughter during one of my declutter episodes.
Have a great week.

Wow, you hit the jack pot, you're right that one cookie cutter made it so worth it and the vintage thread spools fabulous. It's shopping days like this that make it so worth it!

Great finds! I have been collecting those santa cups for years now! I have close to 80 of them! They are so fun. My collection started with the one I had as a child and grew from there!
