There's a New Vintage Christmas Motherlode

I've been chronicling something I've been calling the "Vintage Christmas Motherlode" at the Great Lakes Antique Mall up in Coloma since back in 2013.  I posted about it as recently as this past June when we were getting ready to say 'see you later' to Coloma.

But, now that we're spending time up in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, one of the first orders of business was to discover the local antique mall.  Either Nat's parents or her sister found one just a ten minutes away in Lake Geneva.  So on a trip up there earlier this year, we went.  A bit smaller than the one in Coloma but a lot more furniture.  Turns out the guy at the counter is a wingnut and was getting all excited about the prospect of the incoming President-Elect, so it has that going for it...

But, in we went to wander around.

And lo and behold...what did I discover:  a new vintage Christmas Motherlode!  Look at that case.  Some pretty great stuff.  Ornaments, lights, little figures, Putz houses, and housewares.  Didn't buy anything out of this one (yet!), but I'll be interested to see how often the case turns over.  The one in Coloma seemed to be pretty stagnant.  Not sure if that's because of the prices or the inventory.
