‘Tis the season.

I’ve been bargain-hunting like crazy as of late, and I’ve got a lot to show for it!

Let’s start with my successful trip to the Fell’s Point Second Sunday Antique Market a couple of weekends ago.

A gorgeous day. Perfect for thrifting!

For just a few bucks, I am now the proud owner of this lovely vintage decorative tin, evidently made in Germany.

I also came across a beautiful vintage Swedish tablecloth for $5, which of course I had to have. It looked a bit dingy and stained, so I asked the seller for cleaning advice. She recommended soaking the tablecloth in a mixture of Oxi Clean™ and dishwashing liquid. After following her instructions, I now have a vibrant and fresh tablecloth!

I also had some luck at Goodwill recently, where I picked up a couple of ornate brass trays/wall plates, as well as some holiday-themed Crate & Barrel™ nesting bowls in perfect condition.

Only $6 for the set!

 

Lastly, I took advantage of holiday sales and braved the shopping crowds, and it was definitely worth it. So many awesome deals!, However, I can’t actually share most of my finds, since many of them are Xmas gifts for friends and must remain secret! I did, however, pick up a couple of things for myself…

I’ll share my other amazing deals at some point after the holiday season. 🙂
