Vintage Christmas For REDNESDAY


If looking at Christmas stuff in October makes you nauseous, you might not want to proceed any further! But it's vintage Christmas stuff. Does that make you feel any better?

Whenever I'm near our Goodwill, I make a point of stopping in because they have their Christmas stuff out all year round. I saw this little Made In Japan kitty in a Santa boot on the shelf, and had to use telepathic powers to get the lady standing in front of it to move so that I could grab it before she did!

The kitty comes off, and then it's a........what is it?

A Napco angel planter. I love anything made by Napco, especially Christmas things!

I don't know who makes these two, but it's marked Made In Japan. Why are her eyes closed and he's got one eye open while they're cuddling?
Ok, that's it for me this REDnesday. Please head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our kind hostess. Only 73 days 'til Christmas!!!

I have a lot of similar red Christmas decoration like this. I just do not get into it as much anymore. When it is just one, you do dfferently.

73 days? Oh my stars! I don't even have my fall decor up yet.

Your sweet finds remind me of my Aunt Trudie's house in my younger years; she always had the cutest little accessories for every holiday.

Oh Carol, Carol, Carol! Please tell me you are not listening to Christmas carols yet! LOL!

Cute thingies! I agree with Linda - I think that the kitty is a candy dish. Although I would most likely be using it for extra mini lightbulbs and ornament hooks.

I was helping out at a church sale tonight and they had christmas goodies for a dime a piece. Wait until you see my Lefton little treasure. It is okay to have Christmas in October as long as there isn't any snow. I love your goodies.

Love them all, but especially like that cute little couple. They look like they came right out of White Christmas--one of my absolute favorite Christmas movies. Thanks for sharing and happy REDnesday!

Carol - I think you could open up a museum with all of your vintage Christmas finds! Fun post!

NanE said...

Great finds! Our Goodwill never has anything that cute so I'm swooning here. Love the little angel, so cute. TFS, Nan

Jacqueline said...

Cute as a wink!
I think Santa is going to try and kiss her and she is getting ready. He's peeking to make sure his dream really is going to come true.
It did! They got married and had tons of elves!
You make me smile!

Oh Carol, LOL, I'm sorry, you aren't loosing your mind! My fingers were working faster than my brain and I actually hit the "publish" button instead of the "save" button!

They are all adorable Christmas figurines, but I especially I love the "kitty in the Santa boot" as I have an all white cat! I would have definitely used my telepathic powers to get that one. :)

Thanks for stopping by on Rednesday! I've never heard of Napco. If its make in Japan it must be worth quite a bit. I love your Christmas treasures. Thanks for sharing.

SueLovesCherries said...

Carol, you really scored this week! You didn't mention the size of the cat in stocking, but I'm guessing it's a candy jar. I like the angel the best!

I need you to email me your address - I've something to send you! ;)
