Vintage Thingie Thursday

I sometimes wonder, "will all those decorations from the bicentennial every become collectible"?

I can remember everyone decorating in a patriot theme, my Mom had pewter plates that said 1776 and one with Betsy Ross sewing the flag. I still have them in the basement somewhere?

When I went to the auction 2 weeks ago, this was in the box.

2 Vintage Hallmark block candles, from 1976. I actually think I will put them out for the holiday. They are still even in their original wrapper. They were in a box with about a dozen other things for $1 so they cost me about a dime!

Well worth it I think!

Happy VTT and Happy Independence Day!

Sooo glad I am not the only one old enough to remember the bicentennial. I remember going to D. C. and Philadelphia that summer, and the crowds were terrible.

Hi Ann. Love your 4th July decorations bargain!

I am interested to know what kind of storage space do you have for all your holiday decorations?

One of these days will you post about storing all your pretty things? I need some inspiration.

Happy Fourth,
Mrs. D (Linda)
