A Flea Market Find

This weekend Tammy, Austin, my husband and I went to our local flea market and some thrift stores. As it’s usually just the three of us, people finally believed I have a husband!

Unfortunately I found very little, and my only true vintage find (other than board games for my son) is this snowman. It’s from 1971 and will probably be by our front door.


My question for you all is this: is it creepy or cute? Tammy, Austin and I all think it’s charming. My husband is a little scared and on the creepy side of the debate. What do you think?

    It’s a little too life-like for my comfort but I’m not a clown person either.

      I hear you! If it was a clown…oh my gosh that would be so scary!

    It’s the rosy cheeks that get me. If you got rid of them, I think it wouldn’t be so creepy.

      Looks like the scales are tipping towards creepy 🙂

    I vote Creepy too, but I have a couple of thrifting friends that LOVE the slightly-creepy in their decor. A couple of weeks ago we found a handpainted ceramic caroling scene where the carolers looked terrified. It was awesome.

      I’m loving this slightly-creepy snowman too. My son thought it was a ghost and that was some excitement for awhile. I wish I could see the carolers’ faces!
