We had a bit of snow yesterday (blah!) so I stayed home and putzed around the house. I found a shopping bag full of Christmas, receipt dated 12/30/17.
BOX of ORNAMENTS: These are made by Bradford and new to me. I have a current “do not buy” order on ornaments, but these were just so shiny and their metallic-ness called to me. They remind me of zeppelins. They’re called “Twinkle Drops” and have a cute box, SOLD! They have their original price tag from Hardgoods for .74 cents. They’re advertised as “unbreakable”, I’m skeptical. They’re “Twist-Snap”, you can attach them together to make a garland. They have Glitter Twinkle Drops and Plated Twinkle Drops, these are the Plated.
SANTA PLATES: All three are still in original packaging. The large are Beach Products, original cost .35 cents. The medium are Gibson, original cost .35 cents. I thought the small package was new because the design looks current, but they’re vintage! They’re by Paper Art, called Paper China, original price .30 cents.
CHRISTMAS STOCKING: It’s a large one, a little over 2 feet long.
SNOWMAN SHAKER: Orphaned salt shaker (I seem to only buy the singles) is a lady snowman with wrapped Christmas package, Japan sticker underneath.
HOLT HOWARD GARLAND: Holt Howard and in original packaging, yes please. Cute paper label graphics, made in Japan, original price .69 cents.
BOX of PACKAGE TIE-ONS: These are so bright and cheerful and love the box graphics. Made in Japan, original price .49 cents and marked down to .25 cents. I’m a softie for the ink stamped price markings.
BOX of TINSEL: Double*Glo Icicles, great box colors and graphics with bonus cardboard ornaments inside.
