Last year I posted about my after-holiday shopping score of vintage style ornaments that looked exactly like the glass baubles from the 1950s that my grandmother used to have. These delicate, hand-painted gems have an air of sophistication and elegance that modern resin ornaments can’t match. With their recent return to style, you can start your own collection of mid-century inspired tree decorations.
These are all glass and decorated to vintage accurate perfection. Seriously, how can you not love the hand-painted glitter detail on these?
This year, I’m even more on top of my game and I’ve scouted around to see where you can find these vintage style glass beauties before the holidays. And, happily, there is a great selection again this year at a variety of stores.
Where to Shop for Glass Vintage Style Ornaments
An assortment of choices can be found for great prices at Crate & Barrel, including this pretty tree decoration:
Or, take a bit of a departure with these adorable macaroon ornaments from Nordstrom that look almost dangerously edible. The modern pastry twist on retro glass is really way too cute. Macaroons are everywhere right now, so it’s the perfect compromise between old and new holiday style.
Here’s a full gallery of vintage style ornaments that are available online. Happy shopping!
