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

  1. Oh he is adorable! What is he made of? Be sure to share with us how he looks after his facelift. I would love to see the other items you found as well.
