Goin Junkin!

My! Mom has been here all week long working her fingers to the bone canning with me(that will be a whole other post). So today we decided to go junkin before she left. We loaded the kiddos in the car, hit the atm, and cut loose on the local garage sales.

We hit the mother load at one, because EVERYTHING this lady had was really nice, and all cute. We left with a car load of stuff that my Dad is going to give the biggest eye roll in the world for. But my best deal of the day was this 20 piece Dickens Village Christmas set. I was soooooo tickled to find this set. I have always wanted to have one, but they are spendy. I was even determined to paint one for myself. It was so much work that I only got two done!

Wanna guess how much this thing was?
It came with 9 buildings, a gazebo, bridge, horse and carriage, bell tower, and 5 people! Still no guesses?
Don't you just love the people having their Christmas breakfast at the Inn? Are you ready for the deal of the year?
So all this holiday fun only cost me $25.00!!!! I was so excited, because ONE of these is $25.00 or more a piece! Yeah me! Now I am ready for Christmas to come. Head on over to
Southern Hospitality for more great finds.
