They finally had their display of vintage stuff up! So, I bought a few things.

First, I shared a cute vintage reindeer plague a couple of years ago. They had had a snowmen version and a Santa version too, but I had passed on them. Well, they had the snowmen and the Santa today, so I bought the snowmen:

Cute, right?

Next, I found a canvas print of Santa with a telephone:

And then I found this cute advent calendar. You turn the snowflake to change the pointer's position:

I also bought the Ceaco Thomas Kinkade Disney Christmas puzzle (this link on Amazon shows it):
https://smile.amazon.com/NEW-Kinkade-Holiday-Collection-3328-33-34-35/dp/B075CRS326/

They had cute bottle brush trees including some under domes. I almost bought the one under the dome, but I had bought enough. I can remember my great grandmother having a domed bottle brush tree. They had the vintage ceramic trees that light up too in a few different sizes. Got one of those from QVC, so I skipped them too.

Everything I bought was 40% off, of course. Can you tell I like the vintage-looking stuff?

Nice purchases. I think I'll be in that part of town tomorrow and will have to pop in. It has been rainy and dreary here for 3 days now with remnants of Hurricane Irma so I need to get out and HL will be added onto my list of stops.

I'm kind of glad I don't have a Hobby Lobby in my area, I think I would spend to much money! But those items are super cute!

OH, I forgot to mention, if anyone has a Cracker Barrel restaurant close to them, they should go check out the Christmas decorations they have. I believe they had a snowman couple, close to the ones at the top with the Welcome, and it was darling. I believe it lit up as well. There were so many decorations they had that I wanted but I didn't buy anything, yet. The Cracker Barrel isn't local for me either. Perhaps I need a day of shopping in the next coming weeks.

I saw that at Cracker Barrel a couple of weeks ago. Hobby Lobby has something similar. This is what was tempting me at Cracker Barrel:
http://shop.crackerbarrel.com/christmas/traditional/led-light-up-snowman-wreath/574253

Christmas Tree Shop was starting to put up Christmas decor too. They had cheap framed art. Cheap as in the price; the art wasn't bad. Michael's had a bit of Christmas floral, but I've never been a huge Michael's fan. I was tempted to go to At Home, but I showed restraint. In a few square miles in my area (roughly 10 minutes from my house), I have Hallmark, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Wal-mart, Target, Kohl's, At Home, Ollie's, Tuesday Morning, Christmas Tree Shop, Pier One, Cracker Barrel, Home Depot, Lowe's, and a thrift store along with other stores. A Christmas collector's dream. You can just spend the day going from store to store.

Luckdragon,

you are so lucky to have all those stores just 10 minutes from your home. several of the stores you listed are about 2.5 hours away from me and some we don't even have. Hallmark is probably a good 20ish minutes from my home, depending on traffic.

That snowman wreath is super cute, I'll have to keep an eye on cracker barrels website and see if they offer more sales or even after Christmas sales

I did go back and buy a few more things since this topic started (including buying the Santa plague, and they now have the reindeer one I already had). Went today and found this jewel on an aisle:



This might end up staying on a shelf or nailed to the wall year round.

Caught some minor teasing from the cashier about it asking how I could be an ornament addict if I wasn't buying an ornament. Told her I had probably around 3000 ornaments. Did not tell her that I was going across the street to Hallmark to buy a Jim Shore ornament. I did go buy this one today with my 20% off coupon for my birth month:
http://shop.jimshore.com/we-wish-you-a-merry-christmas-santa-hanging-ornament.html

Always buy the Christmas Carol Santa ornament every year with my birthday coupon. Looks like they're having a nice sale on the Jim Shore site today.

I went to Hobby Lobby and got the Santa plaque. I already have the reindeer from last year. I like the sparkles on Santa's beard.

Case anyone's looking for the sign. It's considered part of "candy cane lane." That line's mostly red and white. So, it was on that aisle. Look for the peppermint trees:
http://www.hobbylobby.com/Seasonal/Chris...arge/p/80660428

And it should be near those. It's 15 inches long, 2.5 inches high. It is part of an assortment, so it may not be up front. That's how I've been missing it. I've walked down the aisle before but didn't pay attention to these wooden signs. Yesterday though, this one was up front.

Price tag says $11.99, but of course, it's 40% off. wink

I went to At Home yesterday too. Amazing amount of Christmas aisles! I was in heaven! Bought a snow carpet since I needed that for a display and a cute pillow. Sadly, they didn't have a lot of wreaths up. I'm looking for a new front door wreath since the one my mom used for years is now getting weird light spots on the amaryllis. The door's green...so it's annoying to look for a Christmas wreath that stands out. I might resort to QVC if I can't find one by the end of October.

Thank you for your help! I found one on JoAnn's website last night and found a code to save $5 on an order. So, for this $49.95 wreath, with the clearance price and the coupon, I paid $15 plus tax and $8 s&h:
http://www.joann.com/blooming-holiday-24-snow-poinsettias-pinecone-on-grapevine-wreath/15090418.html

It looks pink in the picture, but I think it's going to be red with white frosting. If it's pink, then that's fine too. The reviews are good, so here's hoping. *crosses fingers*

If anyone on here doesn't have a Hobby Lobby near them I was able to pick up an extra "ornament addict" sign from my local store.
