I have collected Vintage Christmas ornaments for years. I love vintage ornaments, especially the ones from Shiny Brite. Today I am sharing where you can find these ornaments too.
I love vintage Christmas ornaments. I have collected them for years and they are the perfect Christmas decoration.
I use my vintage glass ornaments in a lot of different ways. You might recall this table that I set a week ago for the holidays. So many of you commented on the vintage ornaments on the cake stands!
Most of the vintage ornaments I have collected are in traditional Christmas colors. I love that there are hundreds of designs of these vintage ornaments and the ornaments come in all shapes and sizes.
Not only do I love using vintage ornaments on cake stands and tables, but I often use them to fill the vintage wood boxes I use to hold our Christmas trees.
My favorite vintage ornaments are made by Shiny Brite.
I can tell you a funny thing about these vintage ornaments. I like the Shiny Brite boxes almost as much as the ornaments. It’s true!
Shiny Brite Ornaments
Shiny Brite ornaments were created just before World War II. Shiny-Brite’s first signature round ornaments, made from beautifully colored glass and painted pastel stripes, were treated as keepsakes.
As far as I am concerned, they are all keepsakes!
Here are a few of my Shiny Brite ornaments from my collection. I love the striped ones. They are by far my favorite.
I love to use the Shiny Brite boxes as decor over the holidays.
Where to Buy Vintage Shiny Brite Ornaments
So where did I buy my vintage Shiny Brite ornaments? I bought them at flea markets, antique stores, and at my friend Judy’s vintage warehouse at VintageJunktionLA.
Anytime I spy these boxes with white, silver, red, and green ornaments I jump at the chance to buy them (if they are well priced). I spent hours looking through the warehouse at Judy’s and found so many!
If you are interested in finding vintage ornaments, you can also check out this link on Etsy. Please note that the Shiny Brite ornaments come in different sizes and some come in their original boxes, which is a huge plus! Obviously, these ornaments are fragile so proper shipping is important.
Shiny Brite Present Day Ornaments
So, guess what?
Today, Shiny-Brite is recreating the joy and style of a mid-century American Christmas! They have new ornaments for sale at a lot of the major retailers.
West Elm has a partnership with Shiny Brite and these ornaments are my favorite. The colors are fantastic and I love them!
They are also much more reasonably priced than the vintage ones.

I am so in love with these that I think I might order them!
These are wonderful too.
Amazon has the Shiny-Brite Christmas ornaments in small sizes (1 1/2″).
They also come in a medium size (2 1/2″).
And a large size (3 1/4″).
I hope you learned a little bit about vintage Christmas ornaments. If you see any of these Shiny Brites, at a garage sale or vintage flea market, then you might want to consider buying them!
