Note: Updated for the 2018 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. And 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?)

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. Yo, 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.
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 float your sled. They remind me of Rudolph's girlfriend, Clarice.
Or what about a cute as a button Snowman Mug? 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 has exploded.
Pinecone gnomes. Now, World Market calls them gnomes, but aren't they elves?
Or are gnomes and elves the same thing?
And they have a retro snowman blow mold!!! You all know how much I love me a good blow mold, so I was so excited to see one making it's way to World Market!
I'm a sucker for vintage putz houses, but they are not normally in the best of shape at estate sales. These reproduction putz houses from World Market are pretty darn close to the originals.
The colors on this bottlebrush wreath ornament are fantastic!
And sort of go with these funky retro bottlebrush trees. They look very similar to one of my Grandma's tiny trees.
How festive is this cool set of vintage looking deer. These girls look like they are straight out of 1961.
Target has a very cute retro styled ornament wreath that is full sized and could go on either the wall or your front door. I've always wanted to make one of these wreaths out of some of my vintage ornaments and then I get wonky about using up my authentically vintage ornaments. Problem solved!
Target also has this cute woody station wagon with a tree tied to the top!!! How adorable is that!
And if you're in the market for a tree, I love the sparse look of this one. It reminds me of the old-time somewhat spindly Christmas trees you see in old photos. This one is 5 ½ foot tall and they also have one that is 7 foot tall, but the taller one is currently out of stock at the time I'm writing this.
Target has so many cute things this year!
From Retro Planet comes these vintage inspired wrapping paper sheets like this one with a Christmas village on it. It's made for wrapping small gifts or crafting (not like it's an entire roll).
And I can not find this online, but Walmart has some if the old style icicle stuff that you hang on mantels or shelves.
Here is some handmade stuff very similar to it that 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.
OK, I think that's enough reproduction vintage Christmas decorations to get you in the mood . Go forth and let the retro Christmas decorating begin!
