Santa will be here before you know it. Make sure you’re on the nice list by leaving out some cookies for the jolly soul! St. Nick will be even more thrilled if you serve his cookies on something pretty like these plates at Junk Mama’s General Store…

And, better yet, why not just leave the whole cookie jar out for the big guy?!!!

While we’re on the subject, what kind of cookies will you be making for Santa?

Handcrafted Vintage Style

There was a time when households were filled with vintage linens. They not only added beauty to a table, they helped protect it. Whether it was mom, grandma, or an aunt, someone in the family knew the art of embroidery. Sadly, hand stitched embroidery has become a lost art. Luckily, there are places like Junk Mama’s General Store that can help you add touches of this lost art to your home. We have a large selection of embroidered linens and get in more everyday! Here are a few examples…
