Christmas Decorating Thrift Style

Almost all my Christmas decorations have come from Goodwill or secondhand stores. A few things I bought off Ebay. I found a really nice honey hole last week in all places down town. I wish I would have brought my camera. There was so much stuff but I only got this animated Santa.

I had to move my other decorations to the bookshelf to make room for the Santa above.

My aluminum Christmas tree with not one, but two color wheels. Yes, it's ok to be jealous. I'm still hoping to find a pom pom tree or even a pink one.


I thought this was a tree skirt when I bought it but it is a round table cloth.

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know I got my green tree at a consignment shop. I love the little fireplace. When we moved 2 years ago, one of the bulbs got broken for the fire. We have not replaced it yet.

It does have lights but every time I tried to take a photo with them on, it ended up blurry. Here is the angel topper.

I also found a few things to resell on Ebay. It maybe a little too late but I'm hoping there are still some people buying Christmas decorations. I know I buy all year long.

some vintage blow molds

This one is Tiny Tim. His cane tip is broken off.

This snowman blow mold is double sided. There is only one other like it listed on Ebay and that buyer is asking over $100 for theirs. I wasn't sure what to price mine at so I added Best Offer.

mini nutcrackers

unbreakable ornaments

Hallmark peek thru ornament. I thought about keeping this but most have been selling for over $15


  1. I admire your fortitude in not selling the silver aluminum Christmas tree. I don't think I'd be able to resist posting it on eBay...Merry Christmas....Dude!

    1. at this point, I would rather sell my children.. j/k I love my tree with all it's imperfections (no silver wrap, bent branches, missing tinsel)

  2. Looks great! I haven't had time to get anything up except the tree and a wreath. Next year I'll bring everything out and do it up nice now that I have more room.
