Thanksgiving will be upon us soon. Many will travel long and far and others will host the festivities in their homes. We will enjoy being with our friends and family, reminiscing of the “good ol days”, and of course eating Turkey with all the trimmings and for desert our pumpkin and pecan pies. Is the table set with Thanksgiving themed dinnerware like Fitz and Floyd, Spode Woodland, or Wedgwood? Is there Turkey figural salt and pepper shakers set out? What about pilgrim figurines and harvest décor? Thanksgiving themed collectibles are more popular than ever!
It use to be that Thanksgiving was thought of as the “in-between holiday” you know, in-between Halloween and Christmas so decorating with and collecting Thanksgiving themed items were not very common. Today the collectibles market for Thanksgiving themed items is extremely vast as collectors today seem to gravitate towards Pilgrim dolls and figurines, Thanksgiving fine china and dinnerware, Thanksgiving themed salt and pepper shakers, Turkey cookie jars, Turkey tureens, and even Majolica Turkey platters to name a few.

Porcelain Turkeys, Plastic Turkeys, Turkey ornaments, Turkey candlestick holders, Turkey dinnerware, Turkey jewelry, Turkey sweaters, Turkey napkin rings, Turkey tablecloths, Turkey napkins, Turkey place card holders, Turkey garden flags, Turkey dog scarves and dog clothing, Plush Turkey animals, Turkey greeting cards, Vintage Turkey paintings, Needlepoint Turkey pillows, Decorative Turkey hang signs, Turkey wreaths, Wooden Turkey figurines, Turkey centerpieces and much more!
