I know October is a little early for Christmas decorations. And I’m the first one to complain when the retail shops start setting up their holiday displays in October. But when you only have one sale a year and it’s in October … well, you have to cover all of your bases.
And we just happen to have a pretty healthy selection of vintage Christmas at this year’s Carriage House Sale.
Have you admired my tree full of vintage ornaments in the past?
Well, now is your chance to start your own ‘non-collection’ of ornaments, these are only $1 each.
Even if you don’t want a tree full of vintage, how about just a few boxes stacked up somewhere for $4 to $8 for the entire box.
Some of the boxes are adorable in their own right.
How about displaying a big glass jar full of ornaments on your kitchen counter. You can go with more subdued pastel colors rather than the traditional red and green.
(Sidebar: can I just point out those delicious blurred colors in the background of my photo? That’s a combination of my Tiger Eye sumac and my Vanilla Strawberry hydrangea. We have just really started to get our fall colors here in the Twin Cities within the last few days.)
Maybe add a darling red gingham tray with a festive message leaning on your kitchen back-splash.
We have several vintage sleds on hand, these are perfect to display on your porch with some greens added, or maybe a pair of old ice skates. I’ve added some festive stencils that I recently purchased on Etsy to a couple of them as well …
I may end up deciding I need to keep one of these for myself!
Don’t forget about plates with winter messages …
I’ll be adding one of these to my dining room Welsh cupboard for sure.
And Sue’s darling Christmas stockings …
Yep, it’s a little early, but Christmas will be here before we know it and you’re gonna want to be ready. Let us help you with that at the Carriage House Sale!
