Also in the spirit of National Thrift Store Day, I wanted to share the story of these candle holders. I found them a few weeks ago in my local Goodwill. While looking around for a new work bag, I detoured through the candle section and came across these brass deer candle holders. I immediately knew they were coming home with me... Why? Because my mom has the same set in her Christmas decorations. ^.^
I remember being young and in boxing all the tree decor pieces... our engraved baby ones, old DIY ones, all the many glass and plastic balls, and the singing string lights. For some reason these candle holders caught my fancy and became one of my favorite decorations. Funny thing tho, I never remember them actually holding candles, lol!
Now I have a set of my own to start my and Lamar's Christmas decoration stash. I love the thought of one day having kids that maybe will like these candle holding deer as much as I do ^.^
Have you ever found something in a thrift store that you bought for the nostalgia or even because it reminded you of a special person or event? What was that thing?
