I scored big at the thriftstores this year. Tons of Polish, Shiney Brite, Jewel Brite, spudnik, and W Germany Ornaments. I actually bought them by the bag full one day and only spent about $27.00

I ran out of room on our tree so I hung the rest of the jewel brites here on my lamp!

My Mum made me the tree. I put all my best glass ornaments on it.  She has four trees this size full of drool worthy glass ornaments... All of these were bought at my favourite thriftstore.

I really love the Dakin Reindeer and Knee huggers! My mum found a huge bag of 50s knee hugers and she gave me a few to add. The skinny legged ones in the middle are from her.  My Leather reindeer are still probably my favourites

My mom made me the tree in the middle. It's full of tiny shiney brite ornaments and little 50s santas. The green paper tree was from Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding.

A grouping of old Santas! I only like the fruity looking 50s santas.. they have to be slightly creepy!

On the very top of the tree I have a couple glass birds- they didn't make it into the photos though.

WOW great scores! its just so hard to get any of these items anymore, My brother told me he hung up the Alice Cooper ornament I got him years ago, I will try to get a picture of it, its a glass ball, he told me his 3 year old daughter picked it up and said Daddy this is scary!

I dont know where I got this picture from but I found it on the internet years ago, its not my picture

Santa and AC
