I don't know about you, but seeing some stores with Christmas stuff out already (I'm talking to you, Lowe's!) seems a little bizarre.
However, the time to buy vintage Chirstmas stuff is when you see it, and I saw a bunch of it last Friday at our local rummage sale. So I guess that makes me an an accessory to all this early Christmas madness?
Anyway, I bought this killer bottlebrush wreath with its original box:
The original price sticker said it cost $1.50 new, so I guess I got a pretty good deal at 66% off (that would be 50 cents). The box was also marked that the color was "blue", though, so unless I developed a sudden case of color-blindness, that was way off. Imagine what the original purchaser must have thought when they ended up with a red wreath instead of blue. (Maybe relief? LOL, but a blue wreath would be totally cool nowadays)
I bought some other non-Xmas stuff, like a retractable flying-saucer kitchen light for my brother's new house ($3) and an Oster kitchen center ($7.50) just like my mom had when we were growing up. I managed to resist a couple dozen vintage Xmas balls; I just have way too many already!
