I was too busy to go on my regular day, but made the effort the day after because a storm was a-brewin’.  I knew I’d be stuck at home for the following few days and figured I’d have plenty of time (not really during the holidays) to research and list some stuff.  And it turned out to be a pretty good day at that.  I started in the grab bags and found all of the My Little Ponys, the Bearington Rabbits, the Olivia Ballerina, the 1990 Fisher Price bus, the Leap Frog and Fisher Price phones, the vintage Knee Hugger Elf, the Bakugan and the complete vintage Enesco Nativity Set.  Each bag was 99¢.

I also got pretty lucky in the fabric department where I found two Strawberry Shortcake fabrics, one Holly Hobbie, one vintage girl fabric in 70’s green, orange and yellow and one lacy pink floral fabric.  Each, again, were 99¢.

Strolling around the aisles, I approached the electronics section and was startled to spot three vintage metal lunch boxes on the shelf.  One Hardy Boys, one Sid & Marty Krofft and one Peanuts.  They were each $3.98, but I knew they were worth it.  The Krofft one that has multiple shows like “Wonderbug” and “Electra Woman and Dina Girl” on it even has it’s thermos.

And then I left a box of breakables in a corner and out of the picture.  It included a Fitz & Floyd Snowy Woods Rabbit, a vintage Japanese Handpainted Lady Vase, a large vintage Waechtersbach plate, and a Fred Plays with his Food plate, total of $12,

Jewelry Christmas Trees To Make or Buy For Gifts, Decoration or Profit

10 Dec

Did your grandmother leave you a pile of old pins, brooches and earrings that you’ll never wear but always thought were really cool when you looked at them in her jewelry box back when you were a wee lass?  Or did you buy a huge bag of them at the thrift store always thinking you would make some sort of craft out of them? Or have you been collecting them for years and now they just sit in a drawer?  Well I have just the thing for you: make yourself a Jewelry Christmas Tree.  Get a nice frame, good canvas backing that you can cover in felt or your favorite (preferably plain) fabric, draw out an outline and go to town.  You can give them as gifts from small sizes to large or use them to decorate your own home! You can even sell them for quite a tidy sum. Apparently many are available online on Shopping/Resale websites by search ing for “Framed Jewelry Christmas Tree” (examples of the high to the low end down below). Here are some amazing examples from Pinterest:

Favorite Christmas Decorations 2014: Cost Plus World Market

08 Dec

Cost Plus World Market always puts together several Christmas collections, one or more of which will appeal to most people.  This year, I’m partial to the Buon Natale (a more natural wood and laser-cut-based collection), the Winter Soiree (a more feathery white collection ), and the Mistletoe Wishes (a more colorful collection).  If the prices don’t thrill you, come back to the website about a week before Christmas as they usually drop prices about that time to encourage purchases and reduce their inventory.
