Found: Gurley Halloween candle!! Vintage witch for 25cents.
These candles were .25 each. Vintage painted candles. I remember having these types of candles around when I was little. The witch is definitely old but the pumpkin head may be a little newer. Gurley Candle Co. was known for making holiday candles, especially Halloween and Christmas. They are highly collectible today. I was thrilled to find one for next to nothing to add to my Halloween decor.
Isn't she awesome, I love her!!
I picked up these little pumpkins and basket for .10 each!!!!!!
We went to a big craft fair called the Sugar Plum. We have them nearby 4 times a year right before big holidays. I love to support local artists and try to buy from the people who have the Handmade Items certification. Some are not.
They always have this cool Halloween house! This fair really but me in the mood for Halloween and fall but we walk outside and its 90 outside with hot Santa Ana winds! Yesterday it got up to 92 and it is 930 am right now and I am already sweating and getting ready to turn the air on. Yuck. On a happier note I still have tomatos in my garden! They must like the heat, I picked 5 really big, fat, juicy ones today and there are still a few greenies left that need to ripen. I love having my own tomatos, I guess that's kind of thrifty too but I grow them because they are so delicious and have so much flavor.
Yes, my 22 year old son here, went with us to a craft fair. It's kind of a tradition, he always went when he was little with me and his grandmother and we still love him to go and obliges us. Nice guy : ) Well I found some great things I think, enjoy!
