Saturday was Christmas open house day in Seville, Ohio, so a friend and I made the journey down. Lots of wonderful antiques at the Seville Antique Mall, but not at prices I was willing to pay. I did get this vintage papier mache Santa boot filled with heavenly smelling preserved juniper.
On our way home, we stopped at a couple more antique malls. In Lodi, I found seven bags of vintage glass garland for a super price, so of course all of them came home with me.
I have many strands of garland with just round beads, but these were wonderful. Some have damage, but that is okay by me.
The center of Lodi is built around a town square. These figures were scattered throughout.
This guy's name was Charles MacIntosh . . . lol :)
We made one last stop at the antique mall in Wellington. I purchased these vintage glass ornaments.
I have a half dozen or so trees in the attic that I am not using, so what do I do? Buy a new tinsel tree. Six feet tall, very narrow, and only $20 at Walmart. This is the first time I have ever had a tree with only vintage glass ornaments on it. I am pleased, but I do need to find some more ornaments. There's plenty out there, but I'm not willing to spend much on them.
I already have one of these small, plastic 1950's light up Santas, but it is missing the wreath. I was never sure what was supposed to be there. Maybe I can fashion a wreath for it.
My last purchase was one more 1950's choir boy.

I hope I find a few minutes to pull some loops.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
