SUBJECT: Thrifted JAPAN ornament
I like to collect vintage “Japan” ornaments. I NEED them (yeah, right). One of the little things that makes me happy, is discovering one of these ornaments in a thrift shop. What makes it even better is only paying $0.20 for said ornament. I know, I know, I live a sad and pathetic little life. I admit it. I found this little guy on Wednesday. I had a small window of opportunity (under 30 minutes) to visit one of my favorite thrift shops after work and before I had to pick up StellaDella from school (DramaQueen & MonkeyBoy had an after school function). I whizzed through the store, and found this guy and another similar gal hanging on the shop Christmas tree right before my time ran out. Forty cents for both? Yeah, I think that’s in my budget. Score!
