A Very Vintage Christmas embodies the nostalgia and sentimentality associated with the holiday season. Vintage ornaments, lights, decorations, cards and wrapping all conjure up happy memories of Christmases past and serve as tangible mementos of holidays shared with family and friends. In fact, finding these objects, decorating with them and sharing them with others brings an instant feeling of comfort and joy. Coupled with beautiful photographs, tips on collecting, and secret shopping haunts, A Very Vintage Christmas offers a 360-degree look at holiday d cor in America and gives suggestions on how to make vintage finds work for today's audience. While each chapter of A Very Vintage Christmas is unique, there is a common thread that runs through them all: the love of beautiful holiday decorations, and the interest in their history, value, and preservation. The book helps the everyday collector and enthusiast to build their own collection and offers tips on how to make the most of what they've got.

This is one of those books that starts you thinking of Christmas.

The author shares Christmas memorabilia and how you can make your own collection.

I loved the magazine covers from Christmas issues of Life, The Saturday Evening Post as well as all the artwork of Norman Rockwell.

Richter defines ornaments as vintage after 20 years. He also talks about the Hallmark keepsake ornaments that we may have received or given.

I found beautiful ornaments my grandmother had on her tree, in the book and that I have since bought modern copies.
