Georgia Peachez. Holy Cats! Before I knew it I'd marked half her shop as favorites and finally decided on the diorama/collage above. What a decision it was! Every time I look back I think, hmn...maybe I should have bought THAT one. Her signature format is rectangular with a bell below and boy are they great! I think I like this one because I just love the box.
Hang Out A Shingle, you can see a 1950's jingle bell card (with bells still attached), vintage Christmas cards, an old 1950's box of ornament hangers and of course, the assortment of 1950's family greeting cards that create the foundation of this wreath's 1950's motif!
With Thanksgiving upon us, of course, I am madly scrounging for awesome vintage Christmas goodies before everyone else, um, I mean, giving thanks, of course! (for people with good eyes, that is!) I wanted to share some of my favorite vintage Christmas goodies and sellers that I know or have found on Etsy...take a look, but be careful, they are all addictive!
Georgia Peachez' outstanding ornament wreaths has sold out! (You can still take a look in her sold items) Maybe she will make some more? If not, she still has a few of these collages left. Click on the one above and grab it fast - at $10 it cannot possibly last long!
Pumpkintruck certainly did not just fall off of one! ( I guess that's a turnip truck, but you get the idea!) I have been scoping out this woman's shop for months now. I finally allowed myself a purchase and used an awesome set of vintage 1950's party invites as the design basis for my own party this year. Specializing in vintage papers and ephemera, you cen never be certain what you are going to find... (except certain that you will want it!)
Mid-Century Mayhem has not been doing Etsy for long but boy has she put together a nice little mid-century shop quickly! And no wonder, look at all that vintage Christmas goodness! And quite the merchandiser I might add...
23 Burton Avenue, I just noticed this week that she started listing some of her awesome wreaths! She and her partner Christine have been making these for years - and they have the hot glue gun scars to prove it! There is just something about the oversized scale of this one that I love! Look at how she put the wreaths over the red balls - vintage Christmas in your face, baby!
Holiday Kitsch Klatsch. (Love the name, what a you-know-what to spell!) You don't have to spell it, though, just click the image or name above! As I understand it, this girl has sold vintage on Etsy for a while and decided to open a sister shop with just holiday goodies - well sister, we LOVE it!
Find Me a Memory! I happen to own a set of these stencils and they are awesome! (and from 1966, the year I was born). Many of my mom's Christmas items have sold (her prices are better than my own!) but she's a sleeper, and can find anything! Keep watching, as I happen to know she's headed to some of her secret spots next week (and I may join her for a couple...)
