Find reproduction vintage Christmas decorations at the big chain stores. No need to spend all your time scouring estate sales anymore to get the nostalgic vintage inspired Christmas look! Score!
Updated For 2021 Holiday Season
The jig is up. We're mainstream now. The whole world knows how cool vintage Christmas decor is.
As I was running around town trying to find matching Christmas jammies for the family, I noticed that stores are carrying more and more reproduction vintage Christmas decorations this year.
Sure, it's fun to buy the real vintage stuff out in the wild, but that can get pretty darn expensive. Plus it's hard to find this time of the year.
So now that the chain stores are selling some pretty cute vintage inspired stuff, it's a chance to get the look without the endless searching at thrift stores, estate sales and yard sales. (I must be getting old. When did I start complaining about the drudgery of hitting an estate sale?)

Where To Find Vintage Christmas Decor Reproductions
You can definitely get your Christmas mug fix on at Pottery Barn.
Vintage styled Santa Mugs - just like my vintage ones I find at the thrift stores, but no chipping paint and weird stains. You can actually drink out of these!
Look, he's winking at you!
Warning on these guys - they sell out of these guys every single year, so if you want them, snatch them up pronto.
Or if Santa isn't your thing (shh, don't say that too loud or he might hear you), then these cute little Cheeky Reindeer Mugs may pull your sled. They remind me of Rudolph's cute little girlfriend, Clarice.
Of course, now that I'm typing that I realize the mugs are boys since they have antlers.
Or what about a cute as a button Gnome Mug wearing a sweater?
Not quite as vintage-esque, but these would be adorable to drink cocoa out of after a cold and snowy day of sledding!
Next stop on the vintage Christmas train is World Market, where vintage goodness comes and goes. Some years they have more of it than others.
2021 is a so so year, but I do have to say these mid-century modern houses are AMAZING!
Although you would not have seen houses used as Christmas decor back in the day (they were more into putz houses back then), they do have that cool 1960's Palm Springs vibe!
World Market also has this retro inspired Bottlebrush Wreath! This fabulous 8" wreath is not only pink, but snow covered and sporting shiny baubles!
Here's a set of 4 retro-inspired Santa Claus plates. These would be so fun for Christmas morning brunch.
They would look so cute on the mantel surrounded by a grouping of bottlebrush trees!
Speaking of bottlebrush trees, this large bottlebrush tree with faux snow and ornaments stuck in it looks almost identical to one my Grandma had.
This one is 16" tall (which is huge for one of these trees), but Target has them in an assortment of sizes if you are looking for smaller.
And keeping with the theme here, this bottlebrush wreath is a more subdued version of the pink one I showed you above from World Market.
I love the addition of trees and kitschy pink deer. Who doesn't love a pink deer!
And if you're in the market for an new tree this year, I love the sparse Christmas tree look of this one. It reminds me of the old-time somewhat spindly Christmas trees you see in old photos.
Walmart has really stepped up their vintage game this year. Big time!
This vintage-styled ornament wreath is gorgeous!
It's a way to get that vintage ornament wreath look without hot gluing a bunch of Great Aunt Sally's heirloom ornaments to a wreath form yourself (and pissing off Great Aunt Sally in the process).
And these gold and pastel colored glass trees are so fabulously retro looking!
As soon as I saw these online, I ran down to my local Walmart to grab some in person only to find their spot on the shelf was totally bare. The price shelf tag was there, but not a shiny glass tree anywhere.
As of this very minute, they do still sell them online, but I have a feeling they may go quickly. Because . . . hello, they're fabulous!
Of course, Walmart also has the ultra-trendy ceramic Christmas trees. And if pink is not your thing, they also come in traditional green or even white.
These trees have become so darn popular in the last few years, so if you didn't save your Grandma's ceramic tree you can still get in on the trend with these reproduction ones.
And how about this blow mold candle for your porch! I have two sets of vintage blow mold candles and they look VERY similar to this one!
You can see one set on my porch from a few years ago - Adding Retro To Your Christmas Porch Decor.
Ok, so I can not find this online, but Walmart has some of the old style felt icicles that you hang on mantels or shelves.
Here is some very similar handmade stuff I made a few years ago to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
But anyhow, I about peed my pants in joy when I saw it in Walmart's Christmas aisles.
