I love anything vintage, but especially vintage Christmas. Here are some of the items I remember from my childhood either at our house or at family and friends houses. I would love to know if you remember any of these from "back in the day".
I love the little plastic deer. I am actually trying to find some of these to use in a craft idea this year.
Who remembers the aluminum trees. We had one in one of my elementary class rooms once and I just thought it was the neatest thing.
I loved these little plastic nativity sets. I actually have a nativity set collection and wish I still had one of these. They have a lot of them on E-bay so I may try to buy one if the price is right.
I love the Shiny Bright brand of Christmas ornaments. I still have some of these for my tree that belonged to my husband's grandmother.
I had forgotten all about these but I think we actually had one or somebody we knew did because I remember them very well.
And I know we had these. We used to love to get to help put them together and Mom would hang them in the doorways.
I loved these old cardboard fireplaces. I wonder if they even still make them.
Another favorite from my childhood. Mom used to always have them in the window.
I don't know if we ever had one but part of me thinks Mom did when we were older and out on our own but I'm not sure. I may have seen one at somebody else's house, but I do remember these.
Don't laugh, but I still cover my tree with icicles. There are so many memories of my childhood tied up in icicles that I cannot imagine doing my tree without them.
I love the big old C9 Christmas tree lights. I keep threatening every year to buy some for my tree but I never have yet.
So, how many of these did you have when you were younger?
