$5.00 Second Hand Christmas Challenge – a challenge to go to a second hand thrift store and find a Christmas decoration for $5.00 to add to your decor.
In a blog post by Cheryl, she says she does this challenge and challenged others. Looking at her blog, she regularly does these $5.00 challenges for other themes and seasons. She Stated in her Christmas blog post …
In this challenge we are to go to any place that you can buy something second hand and spend no more than $5.00 to add to your seasonal home decor. I love this challenge for every season, but the Christmas Edition is my favorite!!Cheryl
This reminded me of a thrift store, KARM (Knox Area Rescue Ministries), that is ALL CHRISTMAS! It reminds me of the Fantasy of Trees in Knoxville. They have tons of used Christmas Trees and decorations. Almost the whole store. I say almost because a small section is the clearance section.
During our visit to the KARM Christmas Store, my wife and I were able to score some Snoopy and Peanuts Christmas items she didn’t have in her collection. Our finds were $10.00 each though. See below the two vintage Snoopy finds. (Two big stuffed Snoopys)
If you are in the Knoxville area this special store from KARM will close in January for the season.
Looking around most of the items were still in great condition! Plus, you could find Christmas decor from your childhood memories.
So go to a KARM, Goodwill, Habitat for Humanities, AMVets, Second Source, Hands Me Up, Word of Life, Salvation Army, LIVE-It, Abundant Hope, or other type of thrift shop and check them out. (Listed some of the Knoxville and surrounding area thrift stores). You could find your next $5.00 Christmas decor item. Plus buying their helps benefit their ministry or association.
Maybe you can find that second hand item at a garage sale, yard sale or estate sale. Maybe your local shopping newspaper classified section like The Smoky Mountain Trader.
This is a great way to find that next accent piece for your themed Christmas Tree. Who knows? You could find a rare item too! There are always gems waiting to be discovered at your local thrift store.
