Buy Vintage Christmas Ornaments Online - Recapture Holiday Decor From The Past

Updated on November 3, 2012

Vintage Christmas ornaments are very collectible as are many vintage Christmas decorations of Christmas past. Most collectors of old Christmas ornaments do so for nostalgic reasons. Christmas brings back memories of childhood and decorations of years ago. On our family tree we hung large indented Shiny Brite ornaments and Japanese ornaments made of metal colored beads. I can still see them in my mind very clearly. Each was wrapped in tissue paper so they could be packed away without breaking. I think I'll have to go looking for those ornaments.

The old vintage ornaments of Christmases long ago seem very special. You can imagine the many happy memories that were shared while those ornaments hung and twinkled on a Christmas tree. Many of them are hand painted. You can find vintage ornaments from Poland and Germany and suprisingly many are in very nice condition.

Buying Vintage Christmas Ornaments Online

If you are looking for vintage ornaments online then Ebay is the place to shop. Old ornaments are very hard to find in stores but on Ebay you can find all types. Ebay sellers look for vintage ornaments at garage sales or estate sales and then list them at auction on the Ebay site. Ebay is a great place to buy and sell vintage Christmas ornaments.

Take a look at some of the ornaments that are shown on this site. The current price is listed which is often close to final price range. Those are just a small sampling of what is available on Ebay which may have thousands of the old vintage Christmas ornaments for sale at any one time.

Vintage Shiny Brite Ornaments

Shiny Brite is a popular brand name for collectors of vintage Christmas ornaments. The Shiny Brite company produced the most popular Christmas ornaments in the United States during the 1940's and 1950's.You want to make sure the glass Shiny Brite ornaments are in good vintage condition and the caps are included.

Shiny Brite ornaments during World War II were made with clear glass and painted because of a shortage on the metal in the previous manufactured ornaments. They were made with Mica trim and had seasonal messages painted on them.

Ebay is a great place to find vintage Shiny Brite Christmas Ornaments. Many times you can find the ornaments in boxes which are hard to find in good condition. Check out the right column where I have shown ia small selection of the vintage Shiny Brite ornaments for sale on Ebay.

Vintage Japan Christmas Ornaments

Many ornaments were made in Japan and are highly collectible. These ornaments were often made of cardboard and decorated with glltter and are hard to find in good condition. Ebay has a unique selection of vintage Japan ornaments. You won't find a better selection anywhere. Vintage Japan ornaments were often made in angel, toy figures, Santas or snowmen.

If you check out the ones I have listed on Ebay in the section below, I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for to hang on your vintage decorated Christmas tree.

Vintage Plastic Christmas Ornaments

Vintage Christmas ornaments are often found made of plastic. They can be found made in a highly reflectable plastic which picked up the sparkle of the tree lights. Additionally many plastic ornaments were made so that the viewer could see a scene inside of it or maybe a plastic Santa. They can also be found with holly or pom poms inside.
