Thrifty Resale Shop Finds

I made a trip to a
local thrift resale shop this weekend,
and spent a whopping total of 75 cents on
two bags of miniature goodies
that I'm hoping will have lots
of crafting possibilities.

I can't wait to see what's inside.

Let's take a look...

...a little sled, perfect for the season
lots of possibilities...

...several bears...

the tiniest little rocking horses I've ever seen
must be a whole one-half inch tall...

a gnome,
I'm not really into gnomes, but maybe
I can do something with him in the
Spring...a garden themed something or other...


also good for the Spring & Easter season.

One unfortunate little guy is missing a foot 
but I'm sure I can place him somewhere
so it goes unnoticed.

owls are popular right now
and this one is a cutie...

a sweet little Christmas mouse...
just look at that face,
and oh, those ears, ha!

vintage choir angels
with golden wings and glittered gowns...

a smaller than bite-size gingerbread man
cookie cutter...

teeny tiny little ice skaters...

and last but certainly not least,
my absolute faaavorite!
this adorable little vintage deer


certainly worth buying both bags
just to rescue her alone

Well now, 
I just have to figure out
where to use all of these tiny treasures.

I got to get crafting!

Until next time,

Warm Hugs,


  1. Love the little gnome. Maybe a fairy garden in the future.

  2. Great stuff! That mouse reminds me of Topo gigio from the Ed Sullivan show. I don't know how to spell it but it was the little mouse on his show. I had good luck atthe thrift shop recently too! Tis the season for goodies! Maggie

  3. That deer is about the cutest one I've ever seen!

  4. I love picking through the bags and baskets of single ornaments and figurines at thrift stores, it's so much fun!


Please comment so I know you've stopped by.
