These fun goodies were actually from the same estate sale as last week's finds, but I saved them to show on their own because vintage Christmas goodies should never have to share the spotlight. :D
Everything that I bought was thrown into couple of box lots so I couldn't see exactly what I had until I got home and pulled it all out. I was definitely pleasantly surprised! I love the big snowman--he's a cardboard candy container but he seems to be covered with a layer of wax. I'm not sure if that was intentional or accidental, but either way, he's charming! His snowman compadres are of the pinecone and styrofoam ball variety. There were several Styrofoam crafts among the items that I bought. The green trees were attached to their bases with toothpicks and decorated with tiny mercury glass balls whose wires had been poked into the trees.
Here we have a giant version of the green Styrofoam tree, and a smaller version that has no ornaments, only a dusting of tarnished German glass glitter snow on the branches. In the other part of the forest is a stand of bottlebrush trees, a pair of foil angels with shocking hairdos, and another pinecone snowman sporting a strange blue paint job and resting on more Styrofoam.
This weekend I went downtown to a beautiful historic mansion to visit a craft fair. I bought only a few things, but the place was hopping and it was nice to see that buying handmade hasn't gone out of style! Did you find any treasures this weekend?
