Yard Sale Find!!!

I was out scouting the yard sales in our local area of Tweed Ontario on the long weekend in May. I just love searching out treasures at each new location, oh the "THRILL OF THE HUNT". My husband says I don't get out much but I get out just fine. I just love looking through the boxes perusing the tables and the lawns filled with the possibility of purchasing an item I need (or not) ....
Well I had a very successful day that Saturday morning I went out searching for that special item.  I found a great mid century chair with a low, curved back in excellent condition, an old black frying pan with a detail engraved handle a little chair just primitively perfect and other wood items I will give a face lift to and give them a fresh new look . But he most awesome piece I found was a Vintage Santa Stand-up. He is the most adorable little guy I've seen in some time. I paid $2.00 for him and he is worth every penny, (tee hee). He does need a little work to make sure he doesn't continue to deteriorate. He stands about 3 feet tall and he will be perfect at the end of our driveway just pointing the way to our upcoming Christmas show in November 5th,6th & 7th and 12th,13t & 14th. So enough gushing about my adorable Christmas Elf, here are some pics, ENJOY
