It's raining.....

It was raining Xmas blowmolds! In the first 10 minutes at the totally crazy church basement sale we found these!

The penguins are so cute! They remind me of Pinotte my tuxedo cat.


In the same batch I also got these

These citrusy mugs

This AMAZING cookie tin

I also got a batch of vintage wrapping paper (Xmas) from Regal- Does that ring a bell to my canadian readers? i loved Regal (Primes de Luxe) I was sooo sad when they closed!

I also got some appetizer forks, a milk glass tumbler and some Phentex slippers (new).
We saw some Pyrex, but nothing really interesting

We had a ton of fun even if we didn't buy as much as last year. That is really what I love from these sales, you never know what you'll find!

Have a cool evening! :)

Summer is definitely the best time for buying Christmas items! Everyone is moving and doesn't want to think ahead to the winter months. I've found all my ornaments/xmas goodies at June/July garage sales. :)

I adore your penguins, how do you usually display your blow molds?

I usually place them in little tableaux outside. And I keep the small ones inside, but so far I only had one!

I can't wait to decorate for Xmas! But I'll enjoy summer first :)

Love those penguins!!! They are so cute!!! I used to sell Regal when I was young - it was so exciting when the orders would arrive and then I'd get to deliver - all those boxes of cards, personalized napkins, personalized pencils - all that great stuff!! There is still Regal online, I've checked it out, but it's just not the same.........

My Grandmother always had a Regal catalogue at her place; I think she may have been a distributor.
And Phentex....now that's a blast from the past! So popular when I was growing up during the 70's - I had a beautiful poncho that my aunt crocheted for me, slippers, mittens, even hanger covers. I haven't seen any Phentex items for a long time but now, I bet that I will find some the next time I go thrifting!
