these are the advent calendars I have had for my kids since they where small. Today I was in the thrift store with my youngest daughter when she came running over with another one in her hand. This one is brand new! So now I can join my kids in the count down with a calendar of my own. I told her she had to get the stuff to fill mine since I was getting all the stuff to fill theirs.

That is awesome! Congratulations on your find! I have that exact same one from Avon that I bought nearly 25 years ago before I had kids. We still use it! I love thrift stores too and recently bought some really nice Christmas stuff for a great price. I will post some pics of them soon.

How Cool!!!! I used to love to go to the thrift stores but the ones around me have raised there prices so high that you could buy it new. I love to go to garage sales though. I have found alot of cute christmas decorations that way.

I know what you mean about the prices. I find they seem to have no standard for pricing, it is what ever the person doing the prices thinks it should be. The calendar I got was only .99 cents, being that it is from the early 80's and next to impossible to find anymore, it should have been marked higher. (not that I am complaining!) while other items, like a tiny glass horse with no identifying markings (was a bout 1 1/2" tall) they had $2.99 on.
So when you go, do so regularly and spend time looking at everything. It is usually in those unexpected spots that you find the amazing buys.

What a nice idea. I've never had an advent calender, but think they are really nice. What a great day of keeping track the countdown to Christmas!

I actually went shopping at a thrify store today. I saw this cute snowman advent calendar but when I got closer to it and picked it up saw that it was all tore up. Oh well, I got some other goodies instead.
