If you have been out thrifting lately you might have noticed a lot of Christmas related items for sale. You will find some good items if you look through all the items and have a little patience. A good cell phone with eBay software helps out greatly. Good thrift finds are Inflatable lawn decorations, Hallmark ornaments (with box) and Department 56 Village Houses (with box).
Here is a recent example of one of my completed Christmas Thrift Store Finds.
I purchased the candle holder for $5.99 and listed it as a Buy It Now for $39.99 which is a great option around the holidays. I find people shopping on eBay are more free with their money around the Holidays. They don't want to be outbid at the last second. This same item from a different seller went unsold at auction for $9.99.
