Goodwill Haul

8 Dec

I’m a scavenger.  I’m talking wharf-rat style.  If I see something shiny, I don’t care if it’s in a dumpster or your backyard.  I’m coming to get it.  So last week I popped in Goodwill and HOLY VINTAGE ORNAMENT MOTHER LOAD!  I’m fairly certain I looked just like a crackhead, snatching boxes and looking dodgy.  Because everyone knows it’s every man for himself in a thrift store.

Here’s what I made off with.

    Oh my gosh…this made me tear up. Most of those were in the sets of ornaments that my dad’s parents gave to him and my mom when they first got married. Reminds me of all my Christmases growing up 🙂 Gorgeous.

    You photographed them so beautifully. I would NOT like to be in your way in a thrift store.

    Good use of ‘dodgy’ there.

    Are you going to be able to use all of those baubles or are they just for collection and ownership?
