Did you know that Vintage Christmas Ornaments are reported to be a “top ten” collectible in the next year? Collectors are seeking these vintage treasures so if you are lucky enough to come across some, you might consider getting them as they are already becoming increasingly difficult to find. Vintage Christmas Ornaments are a great collectable because they can actually still be used for the holidays rather than being a “display only” item. Vintage ornaments have so much charm and detail and evoke the nostalgia of Christmas’s past.
There are many different types of ornament collectors, some will select ornaments based on shape, some on manufacturer and some by materials the ornament is made from and some even by date periods. There are also an endless number of figural ornaments such as Santa’s, Snowmen, Elves, Angels, Reindeer, and more that are gaining in popularity. Some vintage and antique Santa ornaments can fetch a pretty penny in today’s market!
There are serious collectors who have amassed hundreds of ornaments that each holiday season they setup multiple trees so they can display their collections. Some collectors have their “Santa” tree or their “Angel” tree where the ornaments are limited to a theme. Nearly all collectors are constantly in search of more ornaments throughout the entire year, not just during the Christmas season. These serious collectors even enlist the “eyes” of their friends and family to be vigilant incase they should happen upon pieces for the collector’s collection. Read more.
