Publisher's Synopsis

Very Vintage Holidays celebrates the joy and sentimentality associated with all the major holidays on the calendar, from Easter to Halloween to Christmas-and many more. Vintage decorations, customs, history, and lush images offer up great comfort, connection, and continuity in this fast-paced world. Each holiday is opportunity to slow down and connect. There's a mindfulness associated with carving pumpkins, dying Easter eggs, or stringing popcorn and cranberry garlands that helps us to bond with loved ones in ways that both conjure up good memories and enable us to make new ones. Coupled with beautiful photographs, tips on collecting, and secret shopping haunts, Very Vintage Holidays offers a 360-degree look at all the traditional and joyful ways we celebrate holidays and gives suggestions on how to make family heirlooms, vintage finds, and holiday activities work for today's audience. Each chapter is focused on a different holiday and there is a common thread that runs through them all: the love of beautiful holiday decorations as well as an interest in their history, preservation, and relevance in today's world. Now, more than ever, we need holidays to connect us. Very Vintage Holidays helps the everyday collector and enthusiast make the most of what they've already collected and build upon it for future generations to enjoy.
