Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. When it comes to decorating for the holidays, I go all out, and decorate my family room, dining room, AND basement.

I typically keep my eye out for holiday decor all year long, but in my experience, the best time to thrift holiday decorations is November. Usually, right after Halloween, most Goodwill locations will have Christmas trees and more holiday decorations available. If you are looking for something specific, go thrifting as often as you can. The best holiday decor will move fast.

This year, I was lucky to find a practically brand-new pre-lit holiday garland. The thrift Gods knew I needed to replace my existing garland that no longer lights up. Typically, by the second week of December, everything is picked over, I was so surprised to find this at the Goodwill in Waldorf, MD.

On my way home, I stopped in at the Goodwill in Clinton, MD. I found a red holiday candle, and I decided to use a glass vase as my candle holder. Have you ever thrifted candles? I see candles at Goodwill all the time. Adding candles is an easy way to set the mood for any holiday.

With a few days left before Christmas, it’s never too late to go thrifting for the holidays. Keep an open mind and let the thrift Gods lead you to something special; you never know what will be waiting for you.
