O.K. the weekend is over and I am back in the saddle! Here are some of the treasures I picked up at that German Market I mentioned on Saturday...
I just fell in love with these old advent calenders. They're new/old stock and are stamped made in GDR. (German Democratic Republic) Can I just say that vintage German Christmas decorations, etc are the BEST? They bring back so much nostalgia.
Anyway, these advent calenders are super neat because they are re-fillable and can be used year after year - just fill them with whatever your little heart desires! I have close to 20 of these and I will be listing them in my shop today.
One of them still had the actual vintage presents in them!
These are the boxes that the nutcrackers came in. I bought a small nutcracker which came in the small box and the gentleman gave me the bigger, empty box as a bonus. He couldn't believe I wanted it to decorate with. The little ornament he kindly threw in for free too...well, I did spend tons of money at his booth so I suppose he was buttering me up!
This little angel is so delicate, hand made and vintage as well. Very tiny - only 2" tall. I'll lose this baby in no time!
I got three box sets of these handmade wooden angel ornaments in their original box. They're so cute blowing their trumpets and have the cutest gold crowns on their heads. I'll keep one box and sell the other two...
I also got this vintage wooden decoration. Four candles sit atop of the bridge. The details are amazing and the fact that these came in their original vintage boxes just floored me.
