One of my favorite places to shop for Christmas decorations (or really just about anything) is thrift stores.
Now, I’ve moved around a lot so one disclaimer is that the the inventory varies based on your location. You may be thinking that’s and obvious assumption, but you’d be surprised by just how much it varies from city to city or state to state.
Even the prices are inconsistent.
A pair of blue jeans in one state can cost as much as three times what it does in another state.
So if you’re unhappy with your local thrift store, consider taking a road trip to see what some other nearby (or far away) areas have to offer.
Thrift Store Christmas Decorations
Okay, so with that disclaimer out of the way, let’s talk decor!
During the holidays, as early as October usually, you can start to find Christmas items being put out at thrift stores.
You may be wondering what exactly you can find there, well the answer is a lot actually.
You can find ornaments, lights, figurines, tinsel, tree skirts, blankets, cushion covers, and so much more.
If you like festive clothing like vests and ugly Christmas sweaters, you can even find those there too.
My favorite things to look out for are sets and fine china.
The sets of Christmas decorations, such as nativity scenes are usually in big plastic bags with tape around them, so be careful not to pass over them as junk!
The fine china and coffee mugs are really fun too look at because they are usually very festive and detailed.
That’s it for my thrift store Christmas decorations tips! If you decide to head out to your local thrift or secondhand shop and look around I hope you can find something you like.
