Who wants to talk about Christmas!? No one? Admittedly, I’ve never been much of a Christmas in July type of person. I mean, the sun is out, the temp is soaring and the last thing on my mind is Christmas decor.
But, with a little shopping now, you can save yourself some stress during the holiday season and maybe some money while you’re at it! It’s a great time to stroll through Etsy searching for the perfect holiday decor. If you have an unusual color combination or a very popular one, now, when everyone else is thinking of Piña Coladas, is the perfect time to grab a few quality pieces.
I’ve got my eye on these pretties:
• My house is always low on glassware during the holiday season. Stock up on some basics with this set of Vintage Holiday Drinking Glasses. This set contains six glasses with green and red graphics of wreaths, Christmas trees and bells surrounding the words “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year.” Like-new condition. $10
• It never fails, every December I search frantically for a tree topper (and settle for a cheap one I never use again). But not this year! For 2011 I’m thinking of going with cool blues and crowning my tree with this stunning Vintage Glass Christmas Tree Topper. This beautiful 1950s era topper in a lovely teal blue measures almost 9 inches tall and is in great shape. $30
• Another Christmas staple I am never happy with? The skirt. But leave it to Etsy to offer tons of handmade unique options like the Tuscan Christmas Tree Skirt in deep red and golds. This reversible skirt features a burnt velvet fabric in dark golds and reds on the top, a bottom of wine colored satin, with oodles of hand stitched gold beads along the edge. Measures 56 inches in diameter. $105
• And it looks like I found the perfect ornaments to compliment my new tree topper. This set of Vintage Christmas Bulb Ornaments features a mixed lot of retro Shiny Brite and W. German made Christmas bulbs in swirls of blue, pinks and creams. 12 ornament lot $22.50
