As many of you know, I have a serious shortage of Christmas decorations. I own one box of decorations and I need to step up my game!

I was looking at Christmas decor on Pinterest and saw a few of these boxes of vintage Christmas ornaments. I then imagined how great these boxes of shiny bright ornaments would look stacked on my bookshelves. I wasn’t even thinking of the ornaments as I was so excited about the boxes!

So I went straight to my computer and started looking for “shiny brite ornament boxes”. I found a lot, even ones with some decent ornaments in the box. But once I calculated shipping the cost was prohibitive.

And look what I found.

Amazing boxes and tons of white, silver, red and green ornaments. I spent hours looking through the warehouse and I found so many! Judy’s prices are fabulous and she let me select the bulbs I wanted.

I am so excited to decorate my home with these ornaments and boxes. Such a great find!

Last weekend I was at the Long Beach flea market and saw a lot more vintage ornaments (and boxes). They also had some great vintage decor items and trees and so many great things. Now is the time to keep your eyes open for vintage holiday finds. They are worth the hunt!
