50% Off Sale

The thrift store by my house has been running a 50% off sale. I went Monday and yesterday but didn't find much. Most of their Christmas stuff was gone and the stand I wanted was in someone's cart.

I normally don't pick up troll dolls but these were marked Dam and I read they are good sellers. I guess I shall see. These are from 1986 though.

I got this car hauler and bag of cars for ryker. Most of their toys were gone.

I got this picture for my kitchen. It fell off the wall last night but luckily it didn't break.

This New Jersey Devils jacket I'm selling on ebay. I have good luck selling the Starter jackets and I hope this sells quickly.

This desk I picked up on Friday with my sister for Robbie. It's from the Bassett company and is well made.

DIY Vintage Christmas Wreath

I really wanted a vintage Christmas wreath, except I couldn't afford to spend $100+ on Ebay or Etsy. I decided to make one myself. It cost less than $10 and came out ok.

I'm far from a DIY type of person so I was hesitant to make one but it was actually easier than I thought. All I needed was a wreath, some ornaments, lights, and hot glue.

I found a wreath at the thrift store that already had lights. I also found a Santa, some ornaments, and snowflakes.

The drummer, elf and the two wooden Santa's I already had. All I had to do was glue everything in place.

I didn't take into account where the plug was located. I should have glued the decorations so that the plug was on the bottom and not the top. The hot glue also melted some of the snowflakes.

It's hanging inside my kitchen door.
