First up, congrats to Jeanne Raway! I drew her name to win my blogiversary giveaway.
Now, on with today’s post.
Way back before I went to Disney World in early November, I brought a load of Christmas items in to the shop where I sell on consignment, Reclaiming Beautiful. At the time, I definitely thought I’d be painting up many more things and bringing them in. And then life intervened and I spent a bunch of time and energy on arranging to retire from the day job. And somehow I just haven’t quite managed to make it back down there again. Now I feel like the Christmas decorating season is winding down and I may have missed the boat on that. Do most people buy decorations well before the holiday so that they can enjoy them for a while? Or is that just me?
Either way, I have a handful of stragglers that haven’t made it into the shop, and I thought I’d share them here today and see if any locals what to snatch them up (must be able to pick them up at my house in Oakdale, MN).
First up is one more stenciled sled.
It looks pretty cute on my deck …
but I have another very similar sled that I’ve kept for myself for this spot. So this one is up for grabs. It is 46″ tall by 22″ wide. It’s for sale at $50.
Next up is this bucket (tree not included).
The bucket itself isn’t especially Christmas themed, but it’s the perfect container for a small tree. And as a bonus, you can use the bucket year round for other things.
The bucket is $40.
And I have a 2nd bucket …
The buckets work well with a Christmas floral arrangement too.
This one is also available for $40.
I completely missed bringing this pair of ice skates into the shop this year.
I actually created these last year, but they didn’t sell. So I put them away, and then forgot all about taking them back in to the shop again.
They would be fabulous filled with greens and hung on the door instead of a more traditional swag.
The skates are $28 (greens not included).
Last up is one more cupboard door sign.
It would be perfect for holding a couple of Christmas stockings. Or maybe hang some mittens from those knobs.
It is 25″ wide x 10.5″ tall and is available for $28.
If any of you locals are interested in these items, be sure to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
