My Christmas Bargains

Although I've heard that fantastic bargains can be found the day after Thanksgiving and the day after Christmas, bargain shopping with the crowds just doesn't appeal to me. I don't do any of these major shopping days, although I do love a bargain. Yesterday after doing some decluttering, I dropped some unwanted household items to a local thrift store. While there, I decided to just browse around. It turns out that they had some really cute Christmas decorations and they were 1/2 off!

I found these two table Christmas centerpieces for $1.00 each:
I tried them out to see how they will look:

Here is a wall swag decorated with ribbon, pinecones and Christmas beads:

Since I love little nick nacks, I picked these up for $.25 each

And since I am also crazy about candles...

So it turned out to be a great shopping experience, no crowds and lots of bargains!!


  1. I'm not one for the crowds either.. ugh! I like how you got your bargains and missed out on the crowd part. :)

    Happy New Year!

  2. My lil girls and I went out shopping today... very busy... but we found alot of great deals. Your centerpieces are really pretty!!
