Hey there! I searched and didn't find anything close to it, besides the aluminum tree thread. I wanted to share some vintage and retro holiday decor with you all, and I would like to see your collections. This can be for all holidays. This is just a small sample of what my wife and I have collected over the years:


Small vintage light ups and danceing Santa


Snow globes (can you spot santa on the rocket?) and modified plastic nativity scene


Christmas door sign


Handmade wall decor


Large light-up St. Nick.

More to come.

I buy old (excuse me, I mean "vintage") Christmas tree ornaments when I can find them for cheap. I bought these just yesterday - i thought they looked atomic retro spaceagey:



I have a whole bunch around here somewhere, I'm gonna have to root around a bit more - this is all i can find for now.



I haven't actually had a Christmas tree in years - sometimes I just put them out in a glass bowl as a centrepiece.

Here's me with two of our trees. The silver tree is from the '60s and belonged to my husband's grandmother. I've gone a little nuts since we bought a house and now we're up to over a dozen trees, ranging in size from 6 feet to one foot. We start decorating Thanksgiving night and I'll definitely take pix.

Awesome! I just returned from Vegas and started the cleanup before the set-up. I hope to be set up completely within two weeks. I'll post as soon as I'm done!

Vintage Christmas is one of my other big vices.
I'll add here ASAP. I scored my Grandma's 6' painted wooden Santa she used to have on her front lawn, from the 50's or 60's. She also had all these wooden letters that spelled out 'MERRY CHRISTMAS' but I think they deteriorated into nothing unfortunately.

Want to buy Aluminum (PVC) Tree with light for $30 brand new?

http://www.abcdistributing.com/home/catalog/cat_item_pg3.asp?G=462&P=78&Rec=2&Ntt=retro&N=35&Nao=0&R=12947

We got ours in the mail today and with a few minor adjustments to the pole, it's going to set up great! I was going to post about it when we found and ordered it, but I forgot we did that until it arrived today. But none the less, this is a great deal for someone like us who are on a budget, or someone who hasn't had the luck at getting an antique tree.

I can't find a picture of my tiki tree. I set up a smaller tree in my bar area. This is a picture of what was under it last year: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/129/318114916_2652924d56.jpg

Every year we have our "holiday hukilau" and this is a over head shot of my tiki bar full of people

OMG - my grandparents had an original 50's aluminum tree AND the color light to go with it. I wish they still had it. It was such a cool looking thing!
