First up…Sorry everyone for no post last week. I have been so so sick with the worst cold that I have ever had in my life and it literally took me to bed for several days. I’m still not 100% but thanks to antibiotics I’m on the mend. YAY! That means I can put some work into a new blog post for all of you.

This Saturday it’s Toronto Vintage Society’s annual “Kitschmas” party at the Cadillac Lounge in Toronto. We have so many cool things planned as you can see from the poster below. I will be the MC again for the party and I can’t wait to be part of such a fun night. That said, I thought I would keep the “Kitsch” theme going from my last post (HERE) and show you some of the fun Vintage Christmas Kitsch items you can buy right now to make the season a bit more festive.

Toronto Vintage Society White Kitschmas Party

Since Advent has started I thought I would begin with a 1950s advent calendar.

I have a soft spot for cute vintage Reindeer, like this little guy which can be a napkin holder or maybe even a Christmas card holder. Your choice!

Rudolph is the coolest reindeer of them all and now you can have a kitschy version of him with this 1940s/50s Vintage Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Ornament.

No Christmas is complete until you have a Kitschy Santa somewhere on display. This  vintage musical Santa carousel Christmas decoration from the 1960’s will do the trick.

Mr & Mrs Claus Kissing Salt and Pepper shakers from the 1950s…yes this had to be added to the list!

I remember as a child seeing the paper Christmas bells go up as decor for the holiday’s in our home. This Honeycomb bell Christmas decoration in red and green is from the 1940s and in great condition.

The Elf on the Shelf craze is still in full effect, so why not add a bit of the vintage to the game with this 1950s shelf sitting Christmas Elf.

You can’t have a Kitschy Christmas without the 1950s aluminum Christmas tree and a tabletop one is really good if you have a small home or just no place on the floor.

1950s Christmas Kitschy Felt Circle skirt. You will be the hit of the party for sure.

Why not pair one of the skirts with a pair of red Christmas bell screw back on earrings from the 1960’s?

Speaking of tops….Here is one for that special guy in your life. A 1940s/50s Poinsettia/Snowflake Patterned sweater.

Pom Pom’s on a top…Kitschy!! But oh so fantastic. I have been drooling over this sweater for some time now, but alas it’s not in my size or price range.

Lastly, I was also thinking that some of these gifts shown above just might also be perfect for the Secret Santa that Jessica at Chronically Vintage has organized or it could also be for someone special in your life that loves all things Kitsch.

Question time: Will you be picking up some fun kitsch for your home or for someone else this holiday season?

Happy Kitschmas!!

Liz 🙂

  1. I’m sorry you’re feeling under the weather, but I hope you’re 100% by the White Kitschmas. How fun! And you are the MC? Right in your element. All these images look my mother’s house at Christmas, except the sweater. She doesn’t have a neat poinsettia sweater. Last night, watching “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” Lucy referenced an aluminum tree, and my son asked, “Who would buy an aluminum tree?” I’ll have to show him the pic here on your blog.

    • Thanks Kerbey it is taking forever to get better but I am getting better. Yay!

      I AM the MC for this party on Saturday. I usually MC all the TVS events (I think nobody else wants to do it hahaha), and I really enjoy it.

      lol I hope maybe your son will appreciate the aluminum tree after he sees it?? 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. Oh my word, I am so very sorry to hear that you’ve been super ill lately, sweet lady. Goodness, a brutal cold can be pretty much as bad as an average flu (and sometimes linger even longer, I find) and is such an awful thing to have to contend with. Thank goodness that you’re starting to feel like you’re on the mend. I hope that no other bugs strike you down this season (especially not this close to Christmas!).

    Thank you very much for writing this super fun, super swoon worthy (those skirts!!!) post for us in the midst of being so sick. It just added numerous new items to my already massive vintage wishlist. 🙂

    Gentle hugs & countless healing wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  3. I hope you are feeling better, sounds very horrid. I love those skirts, I have been wanting one for some time! Technicolor Cutie is hosting a sew along to make one so maybe I should give it a try!

    • I am about 99% better..thank goodness (it really was the worst). Ohhh there is a sew along..hmmmm maybe I should try? I can’t sew but I have heard that circle skirts are not that hard. thanks for the tip! Good luck with your skirt 🙂
