What I like about op shopping at Christmas time.....

One of the things I love most about op shopping around Christmas time is people clear out their old Christmas decorations. I love picking up old decorations that are more reflective of another time.

You might of seen my post boasting some of my favourite decorations they were picked up last year on a last minute op shop trip for the year. As it is we popped out briefly yesterday for a op shop, and I couldn't pass up a bag of mixed Christmas decorations which had several wooden ones in there.


I nabbed the bag for fifty cents and now I have this cute little collection of wooden decorations (above is just some of them). I've cut of the hanging strings and I'm now using them for a wee little display on our entry hall table. I'm rather fond of the tiny red angel which is about two centimeters not even, it's so tiny and cute. But heck they're all sweet.

Do you have any old or sentimental Christmas decorations hanging on your tree?

These are gorgeous! i was on the lookout for cute vintage decorations today while I was op-shopping but sadly came out empty handed. Glad someone nabbed some bargains though :)

Think I need a little trip down your neck of the woods, my thrift shops are getting a tad stale :(. Love the wooden decorations!

Old decorations are my favourite, although I always buy at least one new every year. Most of vintage ones are glass, they're my favourites, but I would definitely have snapped those wooden ones up if I'd seen them, my mum has some similar.

New Year's Resolutions of the Stars!
