With the holiday season rapidly approaching and in celebration of the Vintage Collectibles week – when is there a better time to take a look at some lovely vintage Christmas collectibles for the season.
Hipsters, dealers and collectors, and even interior decorators seem to be looking to the holidays of the past for inspiration into adding vintage flare to their holiday decor this year. Mid-century items are still on trend to fly off the secondhand market shelves this holiday season including items such as aluminum metal trees or vintage glass ornaments – even lit up ceramic trees won’t stay in stock very long in large secondhand markets, including Etsy or Ebay, and may even go for big bucks!
However, decorating IS in the details. You can virtually change an entire space by utilizing some unique and not-so-hard-to-find vintage Christmas collectibles to create a unique vignette in your home that will be sure to catch the eye of not only your neighbors, but may keep your seasonal visiting company enamored in happy nostalgia in the process.
Here’s a quick look at some lovely “Pin-spiration” (photos taken from Pinterest) of some great collections utilizing vintage items.

Vintage porcelain companies and toy companies alike put out a variety of reindeer during the holiday season of yesteryear. Here’s a peek at some unique ones exclusive to mid-century:
Yes, while these reindeer sure are eye catching – something we found EVEN BETTER than reindeer are a huge surge in the collection and modern-day creation of these miniature “bottle brush trees”.
