First, some Vintage Christmas fun facts from my past:
In the 1950's my parents owned Sherrick's Home and Garden Shop in Beverly Shores, Indiana where they sold the kinds of items that are being featured in the Vintage Christmas Monday's posts.
I went with my mom to Ben's Wholesale Supply Company in Chicago many times while she shopped for product. The first time I was barely tall enough to peak over the table tops at all the sparkly and glittery things! It was heaven! My love of Christmas stuff started right there!
My dad had a spray booth in our stockroom to flock real trees. Mostly white, but sometimes PINK. I loved the pink trees best!
I started helping Christmas customers when I was 10 years old for 10 cents an hour~ and, yes, I had to keep track of my hours on a timesheet.
Now on to some of the many wonderful things that were in yesterday's Vintage Christmas Monday posts!
A wonderful vintage light bulb wreath from GeorgiaPeachez.
A view of her lovely German home from Welcome to Boxwood Cottage.
Part of her extensive collection of Putz houses from Idyllhours.
A wonderful vintage soap suds snowman from Peggy's Mixed-Up Art.
One of her collection of Christmas Tree artwork form Thrifty Style at Sixty.
And the fun display of Christmasy vintage plaid jackets form One Gal's Trash.
The variety of the posts were amazing~ unique, sweet, fun, heartwarming, clever, sentimental and LOL. They had it all.
