Holy Moly Holiday Garage Sale Stuff

I hit a few garage sales and the local church country fair Saturday morning.  I hadn't intended on it, but I came home with a ton of great Xmas stuff!  Super cheap too - just the way I like it.
This candleholder needs to be cleaned up a bit.  I may paint it white, but I definitely want to keep the faux berries.  This was $1.  The little snowman ornaments were also $1 for the set.  I'm going to write each of our names on them for the tree this year.
The wood Santa and snowman were $3 each.  The original price tag said $19.99 for EACH.  Score!  The little cloche was $4.  I didn't buy it for the tree part, I bought it because I've been searching for cloches and can't seem to find one I like under $25.  It'll be the first thing to get a makeover this week.
The little trees with the bows were $1 each.  I want to have a tree or two in every room in the house this Xmas.  It's my goal every year but it never seems to happen.  This year I'm determined.
Last up, I did score some Halloween goodies too.  These candy corn ceramic bowls were $1 each.  I also got some ceramic pumpkin candleholders - also $1 each, random lace and fabric, and of course a few things for the kiddies.  Overall, I spent about $20 for everything.

Sounds like a treasure trove of a day! You got some nice things and the total outlay makes it even better.

I'd say you stretched your twenty dollars pretty good. Those candy corn dishes are so cute.
