Christmas Antiquing and a Vintage Card


Hello friends!
One of my favorite things to do is antiquing. Especially at this time of the year!
I love looking for vintage Christmas treasures. Just getting to see all the fun decor from years long ago can be so inspiring!


This booth makes me nervous. Ha! Too much fragile stuff packed in way to tight. It's a lovely sight, but I am usually so overwhelmed that I never find anything in a booth like this.


Now this sweet little antique shop always knows how to create the prettiest vignettes!


Love the ornaments hanging from the branches!


So many pretties!


I love the simple style of this tray of vintage ornaments!


I was very perplexed by this arrangement of plates!
 I kinda like it..... what do you think?


A lovely vintage Christmas card to share with you today! I adore the colors and style of this one!


Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

I love hunting for vintage treasure in places like that! I see a few things in these photos that I would have grabbed! I really enjoy visiting shops with my sisters, because together we can cover more ground, and call out to each other when we find something we know the others would like.

Oh Lindsey, I'm so big and clumsy that I don't like cluttered booths like that either! I'm so concentrated on not stepping on anything or bumping into things that I can't focus on the wares!

Our antique mall hardly decorates for Christmas :( so it's nice to see your pics!

Thanks for sharing the caroling image! ♥

I love the vintage glass ornaments and picked some up at a garage sale for $1.00 a box! I was thrilled. I really love the old German ornaments, but they are pretty pricey, so I only have 3 of them. I loved looking at the pictures and wish I could shop there.
