Vintage Christmas at the Flea Market! Score!

Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you some vintage Christmas goodies I found yesterday at the flea market. Now, I still love my pinks, and creams, but I love these vintage types of Christmas decorations. The swag on the left, is plastic snowmen on white plastic chains, with a red velvet bow. It is from Two Guys department store, and the original price is .99! They were a popular department store in the 50's -60's, and are no longer in business. I met the sweetest woman from this booth, and she told me she has been collecting vintage Christmas since she was 15! All kinds of goodies loaded in totes in her attic. I plan on putting the snowman swag on e-bay. She was just setting up her booth inside the flea market, and I was overjoyed, when she told me to pick through whatever I wanted! Love this light-up snowman blowmold.






Love the little santa to the right. He is sealed in the package, and was also marked .99. Looks like he is from the 60's too. He has a rubber face, and made in Japan. Down in front, I found 2 glittered candlestick picks. It's funny, I used to work in Woolworths department store when I was 16. I worked in the housewares dept, and always had to straighten up the big display of plastic flowers and picks. Who knew things like this would be so sought after years later?






I was really excited to find these pixies!! They are all in great condition, and nice and clean. The one in the front holding the package is adorable. There is also a drummer in the front. There is a satin ball next to santa, with a rubber face pixie sitting on it. I just used the little votive cups to display them. I almost didn't even go to the flea market, because it was cloudy, and didn't look like a good day to go. Hubby said, oh lets take ride anyway. I'm so glad we did! The sun ended up coming out, a cool breeze, and there were more vendors there than I have ever seen! I'm so looking forward to fall, and Christmas. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I am joining in with Suzanne at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/2012/08/vintage-thingie-thursday-vintage-pyrex.html for Vintage Things Thursday! Go over and check out more vintage goodies!

Sounds like you had a shopping trip that turned out to be fun and productive. Vintage Christmas items are so interesting to reflect back on the past. Things that seemed so ordinary then are so special today. -------- Shannon
