time to turn our attention to holiday gift wrapping.

just in time for holiday gift wrapping,
another unusual item from the estate sale of
unused 1950's christmas whimseys.

red mercury glass pinecones.

still in their original tissue paper wraps.
(their red color matches the beaded icicle picks
 also in my etsy shop.)

fun vintage holiday stickers.

and 50 sheets of vintage sheet music
that would make great vintage packaging for your small gifts.

all available at anythinggoeshere.etsy.

rare and square... vintage square mercury glass garland beads.

a couple of months ago
i had the opportunity to buy some unused 1950's
christmas store stock.

the red beaded icicle picks that i posted about yesterday
were from that purchase.

but the items that has been the most popular 
in my etsy shop
are these rare square mercury glass garland beads.


these are something i have never seen.

lovely candy colors and very nice

a touch of something special for your favorite
vintage christmas collector
or for your own holiday projects.

fly away with me.

about a month ago i bought over 200 vintage radio controlled model airplane propellers
at the estate sale of a ww2 fighter pilot.

and the last couple of days i have spent listing and selling them
as fast as i can take photos and get them ready.


there is such a nice variety of sizes, writing, patinas.
and i am enjoying picking which ones to put together.

25 of them went off to california together.
lucky them.  it is starting to get cold here in the midwest.

these are some of the ones i have added so far today.
