Thrifty Christmas Treasures

It's time for another Thrifty Treasure post! Hunting for Christmas treasures is by far my favorite when it comes to thrifting! Many of these treasures were found last year when I was in Florida for a period of time. Goodwill usually starts putting out their Christmas items right before Halloween, so get there fast and go often!


 I love this LENOX ornament! I found this last week at Goodwill for only 50 cents! I couldn't believe it!! It looked like someone had picked it up and then put it back down! I, of course, snatched it up!

This is a "LI BIEN" Ornament I found at a thrift store in Florida. I bought it for $3! I have a few more of these ornaments on the tree that were given to me.


I found this beautiful sled at a Goodwill in Florida for only $3 and I just had to have it! There are so many things I can do with it! I think next year I'm going to wrap little presents to put inside!


I love milk glass vases and I have 7 now and neither of them were purchased for over a $1. I went to an antique store over the weekend and they were selling them for $6 a piece! I have them all over the house like this and some have flowers.




I had mentioned in my Christmas Mantel Reveal post that my mantel decor only cost me $13 dollars this year! Well the only thing I bought this year was actually the pre-lit garland you see on the mantel from Walmart.


This is one of my most favorites! My mom found this at a Thrift Store in Houston a few years ago.









These Christmas place settings were found at a Goodwill in Florida. The dishes didn't cost more than $2 a piece. In the picture I matched the salad plate to the dinner plate, but I also like mixing them up! I found the red place mats at the Dollar Store and the pre-lit garland came from Walmart!

When the Christmas plates aren't being used, I display them on my gold plate stand I found for $2.


 These were shown to you in a previous thrifty treasure post and this is what I did with them....


The tree was a find from last year at Goodwill too!!



 This is on my coffee/tea bar which is now temporarily my hot chocolate bar!! You can see my post about the other thrifty treasures in this photo here!!




Aren't these penguin salt and pepper shakers the cutest!! I found these at Goodwill along with the candle holder that matched the napkin holder I already had!!

There is a look at my Christmas Thrifty Treasures!! I hope you have a great day and good luck with your finds!! Remember, going often is the key!!

  9. I love how you mix and match the plates and how all the plates are different. What a great idea!
    I need to do better about thrifting, but it is so hard to store stuff in an apartment.
