t-store scores: gift edition


I thought I’d share a peek at the vintage gifts I received this year. A few years ago Brian and I started setting a $100 limit each on Christmas gifts. It helps us be more creative and helps with the gift craziness between both our families. I made out like a champ with some vintage goodies to add to my collections and all my gifts from Brian were used treasures so that’s a win for environmental impact too!

A pull-down school map has been high on my thrifting wishlist and he found this one on Craig’s List for me.

The parents in law found this enamel jewelry set and bag… and, look! There’s a kitty!

I have an ever growing collection of vintage owl goodies and my brother in law found these owl wood holders for the fireplace. We have never used our fireplace and I’m embarrassed to say, it’s a place I never thought of decorating before!

I didn’t make a lot of gifts this year, just for the nephews. We screenprinted this tee for the 2 year old and I made a blanket for the newborn. I’m sure the boys were not thrilled at all with these prezzies, so I guess they were more for the parents :)

    What a great idea it is to set a limit on the money you spend on gifts! I am not used to exchanging gifts, so I was totally not prepared this year. We ended up buying last minute presents just for 5 people and spent more than we’d have liked! I think we’ll have to set a limit for next year and start getting vintage goodies early!

    I think the tee you screenprinted and the blanket look awesome! ;D

    Hope you’re having a great week!

      I’m pretty excited about it! Brian got it on Craig’s List so you should check there. They aren’t easy to find but I’ll let you know if I ever come across one!
