Thrift Store Nativities
Updated: Mar 2
January and February are great times to find bargain nativities, and some of the most amazing ones come from the Thrift Store (a.k.a. Goodwill, Bargain Bins, The Closet).
Here are a few from some of our avid collectors. If you have a few to share, send us a SHORT blurb.
Hard to believe this one survived.
Okay, I cheated for this one: Charles and Norma Hull sold this to me at the FOTC Convention. They were downsizing.
Post War Italian. Cost $5.
Yep, it's from Oberamergau! This Thrift Store wonder was purchased in Michigan! Neil Allen
Not exactly a thrift store purchase…it was a gift from my niece. She got it for free from someone who didn’t know that it is a Kubasta. Helen Holder
Not sure the creator meant this to be a nativity, but we saw it in the window of a antique/thrift store for $10. It is about 10” tall, very rough clay. Helen Holder
And this German Style lighted silhouette cost all of .49. Found in Seattle Goodwill bins.
.99 cents! Michelle Devitt. (just the nativity - not Michelle!)
Michelle says this one is $1.99
From the Ohio Toy Factory. Michelle Devitt.
