Vintage Christmas: Friday's Find #218

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Like many of you, I shop thrift stores for Christmas treasures year round. Not only do I buy most of my own Christmas decor, I also stock  my Etsy shop.  I couldn't resist this pair of whimsical snowman pictures. Aren't they darling? 

Fabulous thrift store finds of the week

These appear to be vintage Christmas cards that were professionally mounted on rustic 8" x 10" boards. The edges are finished with black paint and the brown paper backing that frame shops and some galleries use is stamped from a shop called Jan's Junction, Spring Texas.

I doubt it is still in business, as there aren't any online listings.  I love the retro graphics and am selling them as a pair. Set of 2 Available

Vintage Christmas linens have been a good seller for me, so I was happy to find several this week. First, this beautiful poinsettia tablecloth, that's in perfect condition. This would be ideal if you love poinsettias but don't want red to be the predominant color. The red poinsettias pictured, are at each corner.  The bottom photo is the center and the white poinsettias on the left are on the ends and sides of the tablecloth. It's a large one--70" x 89". Available

Next, I found two handmade vintage aprons. Isn't the ornament applique on the pocket of this green one cute? Available

I love the pretty print and Noel design on this one, too!  Available

Finding just the right Christmas table runner can be a challenge, so I grabbed all three of these! The first is handmade and features red and white plaid fabric with a holly design. At 17" x 53", it's slightly wider than most. Available

This festive poinsettia runner appears to have been handmade from a vintage tablecloth. The fabric is absolutely spotless, but the serged edges have a few stretched places. {See more details in listing.} Available

Last but not least, a charming needlepoint angel pillow. The back of the zippered cover is ivory velvet and is pristine! Available

  1. I love all your Christmas finds! I especially like the aprons and the mounted cards. That gives me an idea to mount some anniversary cards I got in an auction lot. They are the pretty satin puffy kind and I just can't bear to just throw them away. Mounting them would allow other people to use them for their own anniversary.

  2. Great finds. I just love finding Christmas "treasures" of all kinds. I waste my time ironing and spray starching table linens, etc. and they look SO nice! I bet with spray adhesive and a new utility blade, you could mount your own cards/prints on boards or foamcore!

  3. Love the cute "Christmas card" pictures. You found some really nice stuff.

  5. Cool finds Cecilia! Love the vintage cards.

  6. I adore vintage Christmas and you found a bunch of great things. I just love the poinsettia and holly on vintage linens. I love finding them year round to store away. I have three bins full now to sort and list or put in my booth. I want to keep them all!

  7. WOW!! So many wonderful vintage items!! Love them!! Thanks so much for visiting!!
