Collectible Christmas Ornaments

Collectible Christmas Ornaments

Many folks like to decorate for the Christmas holiday.  When I was a child, we would put up our Christmas tree on the afternoon of Christmas eve, and we would spend the evening decorating it with my family's collection of ornaments and lights.  On January 1, we would spend most of the day taking our holiday decorations down and packing them up for the year.

For a number of years now, it seems as if holiday decorations are going up sooner (like by Thanksgiving), and coming down later (perhaps by Easter).

When our daughter was growing up, we decorated our house inside and out, but since she has pretty much grown up, and is living on her own, we have found ourselves doing very little to celebrate Christmas.  It is just too much work.

For most of my life, I collected vintage Christmas holiday items.  I have been selling off my collection on OLA in recent years.  If you collect old Christmas ornaments, check out my OLA store, Classic_Chloe.

Vintage Christmas ornaments make fine gifts!  Order now to get in time for holiday giving.  Online Auction, Where Buyers & Sellers Meet , is a GREAT Place to find GREAT Holiday Deals!

Thanks for looking,
Until next time,

You have some beautiful ornaments here!! I'll have to take a look and see if I can squeeze one or two more in!!

We, too, had our Christmas traditions and one was getting a new ornament every year. Carried over from my mom and dad .... and I now have a lot of theirs .... 1945, I believe, is a paper bell .... with a tag "very poor year". It kind of tells some of the history of their life together!!

Awesome, Chloe!!
