Collecting vintage Holt-Howard Christmas ceramics is a great way to enjoy the holidays. It was the Holt-Howard company that first began creating and selling the well-known Pixieware collectibles back in 1958. The items were manufactured in Japan for affordability, but they were made from high-quality ceramics that were then sold in the US as affordable giftware. The Holt-Howard company added many different pieces to their catalog that followed the same quirky and fun designs including Christmas ceramics that are still in high demand today. Follow this guide to collecting Holt-Howard like a pro.
Welcome to the 2021 vintage Christmas collecting series. This is our first post in our series for 2021. If you’d like to review our 2020 six-part guide you can find that here and learn about vintage Christmas collectibles from the 1950s-1960s.
You can’t have Christmas without Santa Claus and there is no Santa as whimsical and charming as the Holt-Howard Starry Eyed Santa line of Christmas ceramics. It’s easy to see why, with his amusing charm, Mid-Century atomic starburst eyes, merry whiskers, and gold flecks, Santa Claus exudes wonderful kitschy cuteness, and many can’t wait to grow their collections with this range. The Starry-Eyed Santa has always been incredibly collectible and highly desired by collectors but this year his popularity has dramatically increased, and prices have skyrocketed.
I am so excited to share my latest design with you all. Many of you know I have my little shop Crazy4Me Style that has a great collection of vintage inspired tops and accessories and today my latest design Winking Honey just landed. My Winking Honey top is my most versatile design yet and can easily be worn under blazers and cardigans for work or add a circle skirt or pencil skirt for some retro flair and, it also pairs nicely with jeans or leggings for a fun casual outfit.
My Winking Honey top is screen printed with custom artwork featuring stunning red lips and a winking eye with long eyelashes on a baby blue ribbed scoop neck top that is so very soft and stretchy. I am thrilled to offer my tops in regular and plus sizes 2-20 for all you honeys!! I wear the curvy size XL and it hugs my curves perfectly. Hurry and snap yours up while they last.

We all know Christmas is less than a month away but there is still time to find your perfect Christmas looks for the parties, shopping, and social events on your calendars!! This year there are so many great Pinup outfits from dresses to separates and even casual attire available. Many of my readers are newbies when it comes to Pinup and many are long time devotees but, I have heard from so many of you that you are not finding the perfect outfits for the holiday season so I have put together this guide I am calling Novelty Christmas Pinup Wear in the hopes it helps out all my Pinup friends and even those who have a Pinup in their life and are looking for perfect gifts!!
You will love this one!! I am so excited to make my vintage inspired Christmas t-shirt available to you all from Crazy4Me Style. My tee has custom one-of-a-kind artwork of a kitschy cute Rockabilly scene with a lovely Pinup Girl dressed in beautiful vintage style outfit decorating her Christmas tree and her fluffy puppy dog is helping too!!
I am happy to share our latest addition to the Crazy4Me Style shop, our Blonde Bombshell Hearts and Kisses Pinup Girl T-Shirt from custom one-of-a-kind artwork. She exudes 1950s bombshell glam with her glorious blonde hair all done up in a vintage style and she is blowing kisses and hearts. She is perfection!!
For this tee it was quite the challenge finding the right fabric and printing process. I really wanted an aqua blue tee to showoff the artwork as I could see it perfectly with the pink hearts and her blonde hair. Dye lots apparently can vary and just because you receive the correct colored tee once doesn’t mean you will again, so we worked with many manufactures to find the absolute best workmanship and also experienced sizing rounds to ensure the design was perfectly printed and with the right colored inks. We talked to so many companies!! We also wanted to work with a US based company as that is a really important thing for us. It was a very long process but, here she is, we are so proud of the finished product and hope you love her!! Sizes available in XS – 3XL.
Our Blonde Bombshell tee has the perfect scoop neck and the sleeves are not tight on the upper arm portion like so many other tees. Ours are roomy with a nice shape. The t-shirt also accommodates a full bust with ease and that means the design won’t crack; this is especially important for us Dolls with large breasts. The tee is also a nice length that can easily tuck into wiggle skirts, swing skirts, and jeans, and, can be comfortably un-tucked over trousers and will maintain its shape. Our tee is perfect for the Pinup Girl, Rockabilly babe and modern day vintage loving gal!!
