Garage Sale Finds part 1

A few weeks ago, I stopped at a garage sale down the street.  There were lots of vintage goodies and I picked out a few things.
These beautiful (have never seen a dishwasher) Christmas glasses, set of 5, were a wonderful find!  I've always wanted a set of Christmas glasses.
I bought this plastic, Christmas tablecloth thinking it was JUST a Christmas tablecloth.  Imagine my surprise when I opened it up in my kitchen and discovered it was reversible!  It is a Christmas AND a Birthday tablecloth in one!
I had never heard of these before and didn't realize they existed!  How FUN!
These smallish, circular, Christmas...I think they might be tablecloths, were also in the linens pile.  I'm seriously thinking about making one into a tree skirt for my little vintage tree.  The edges are unfinished, which made my mother wonder if there had been an outer ring of embellishments of some sort (maybe puff-balls).  They are cute though, and diffidently vintage!
My heart about skipped a beat when I saw the box, below.
Some of the ornaments are plastic, some are from what look to be the very late 60's into 70's but there is one little beauty in there that I think could be from the early 50s!  Can you spot it?
Well hello there, you pretty little ornament!
He will be a nice addition to our little vintage tree.
Well, that's all for today.  Most of the finds were Christmas in nature, but next time I will share a couple of other neat little finds!  Stay tuned, and have a happy, vintage day!
