Setting up tiny, glittery houses during the Christmas holidays became widely popular in and continued for about a decade after World War II ended. These historic vintage villages are particularly sweet: Whether they were arranged as small neighborhood on your mantel, part of a train set scene under the tree or set up in conjunction with a nativity scene — these diminutive buildings allowed both young and old to play as they decorated. We have several different designs — get to our first tutorial and from there, the various designs. At our house, we always set up the three tiny structures that were given to us by my grandmother pictured above as part of a scene on top of the TV cabinet. They went between the nativity scene that I made out of clay and the Snoopy and Charlie Brown holiday figures we had collected over the years.

Vintage Christmas decorations are our specialty! We carry both reproduction and true vintage decorations. Feather trees were first made in Germany over years ago from real goosefeathers. Today's reproductions emulate the style and beauty of those feather trees, at a fraction of the cost of the vintage trees. Below find a selection of trees in many colors and styles, made both in the United States and China. Pam Schifferl's Enchanted Christmas figures are reminiscent of a snowy winter's eve!! Pam imagines the finished carving before she begins, thereby creating a story within each piece.

Most of us get a warm, fuzzy feeling when we think of Christmas and automatically reflect upon our childhood memories. As a small child, I was always drawn to the creche scene under the Christmas tree. After making sure the baby Jesus was safely tucked away in his crib, my eyes would gravitate to the village that surrounded the manger.
