If you’re looking to save money on your Christmas and Holiday decor, go thrifting or antiquing!
Antiquing and thrifting are one of my favorite ways to find unique items for my home and save money in the process. If these treasures could tell their stories, I would listen all day.
My home Christmas decor is a good mix of new and old so I thought I would share some of the typical pieces I look for at antique stores and thrift shops.
First up, silver pieces. You cannot go wrong with classic silver pieces, whether it’s platters, utensils, or urns/vases. HERE’S an amazing blog post from The Shabby Tree showing off how she usues silver items in her home.
Next up is crystal or glassware. There’s nothing more beautiful than beautiful glassware or crystal stemware on a decorated dining table for the holidays. Stemware is great for adults to use and crystal punch bowls are perfect for a yummy party punch.
This one may be my favorite recommendation. Beautiful quilts. Hang them over the back of your couch, display them on a ladder, or wrap them around the bottom of your Christmas tree to give your room a pretty vintage look. Isn’t that blanket gorgeous?!
Vintage cookie cutters are great for many reasons. Display them in a bowl or hang them from a small kitchen Christmas tree, as well as using them to make baked goods or ornaments. They’re so versatile!
This next one can really be used all year long. Grab an old wooden planter box next time you see one to display things like dishes and towels or just simply fill it with greenery for your kitchen table. These make great centerpieces! Similarly are wooden toolboxes that can be used the same way.
You can’t go wrong with winter paintings to display for the Holidays. I love pieces like this that can be used all winter long and for $25?! What a steal!
Lastly, look for vintage table linens, whether it be tablecloths or napkins, these are so beautiful to display during the most magical time of the year.
Thanks for reading along and I hope this post inspired you to visit your local antique store or thrift shop for one-of-a-kind Christmas finds.
