This shop has loads of beautiful vintage and antique items spread throughout several rooms and the basement (which I didn't get to visit due to time constraints). The items I looked at were very reasonably priced.
I spotted a bowl full of vintage paper milk bottle caps and began looking through them just for fun. I had never realized that these caps were made in special holiday designs. (I'm well within the age range that remembers when milk was delivered to homes in glass bottles, but I didn't know or remember any special holiday bottle caps. Our local dairies probably used them, but I didn't drink milk as a child and thus would never have been the one opening the bottle.)
Back to the antique shop. In a short time I found three pretty Christmas-themed designs. The caps were priced at 25¢ so I bought four, in the three different designs. What fun!
I actually own a Christmas-themed glass milk bottle from the 1990s and I like to bring it out at Christmas time. I had made my own paper cap to use when storing it, but now I'll be able to use a pretty vintage one.
What a fun find! I wish now that I had purchased more of the caps, as I can think of several ways they might be used in crafting and decorating. Hope you've enjoyed this look at an unusual vintage Christmas item!
