Awesome finds! This Big! is really cute, and Winter Trimmers, set of 6 felt, miniature ornaments is one of my all time favorite collections. I think I have 6 sets. They compliment the chalkware ornament collections from 2002 and 2003 and look so good hung on the tips of the branches. Love them. smile

I found the following for .89 each

1986 Baby's First Christmas QX2713 PATT
1986 Baby's First Christmas QX3792 PATT
1986 Baby's First Christmas QX3803 PALM

boxes are not in the best shape but the ornaments look like they have never been used and are in sealed plastic (not sure if that is how they came)

I LOVE 2016 Festive Flyer! It's probably in my top 10 non-series Hallmark ornaments.

found the 2015 Jingle Bell ROCK by Sharon V. No box working with the batteries inside for .85 cents today.

LOVE it and happy to report I didn't have it.

Maybe I will take the battery cap to get signed in KC.

I found MY costume for Kansas City today in a thrift store. Mint with the tags...never used.

It was $19.99 but with sales and coupon I got it for $2.68.

I can't believe it. I just need a few smaller props.
I do not sew and I'm not handy making things so I AM THRILLED!!!!

Kansas City here I come.

I'm not out to WIN just to be a part of the FUN!!!

I went to 5 thrift stores today, and I found two Hallmark ornaments at one thrift store. Alas, someone had stolen both of them and left the boxes empty. frown

I did find a vintage Christmas decoration $1.99 (plastic sleigh with plastic Santa, plastic greenery, and two white plastic reindeer), a Gund Snuffles (I have a soft spot for Snuffles) for 99 cents, and an unopened Ceaco Nene Thomas fairy puzzle for 99 cents. I have usually good luck with unopened puzzles at this Goodwill. They recently moved into a really big location, so it's pretty awesome. It used to be a drugstore and has its own stoplight, making it easy to get in and out.

Shame on people who steal ornaments. Something similar has happened to me. I bought a repaint from someone and when I went to pay for it, someone had switched it with a regular ornament.

But at least you found some good things.

I have found the same thing to happen around here. Such a shame too when you see a sticker that has it priced at less than dollar. Somethings we will never understand I guess.

My mom won a RTW at the Amy's in Crown Center. The store had displayed the prizes out in the open so people could see what they could win. Someone's sticky fingers took the RTW and put it in the box for the regular Toymaker Santa and bought it. The store personnel didn't notice that the "prize" was actually the regular line ornament. There weren't any additional RTW packages for the store to get so they could replace the prize ornament. So my mom has a box with the gold triangle for an ornament that isn't what it's supposed to be.

At thrift stores I sometimes wonder if the ornamets we're even in the boxes to begin with!
