About MyChildhoodChristmas

On Etsy since 2013

Bringing back the joy and wonder of Childhood Christmas!

In the first half of the year I put things in my vintage store that you can't find anywhere else. I love discovering old treasures that people can love again, or wonderful memories they can give others as gifts. After August you'll find a glorious array of vintage Christmas items to transport you back to the Christmas of your childhood!

I'm a vintage Christmas addict. I search for and buy things all year that remind me of the wonder of my childhood. Once a year I offer these things for sale on Etsy so other people can have the same joy finding something that brings back a treasured memory.

I also make Christmas ornaments out of vintage items. I worked for Sea World in the visual arts department every Christmas, and I'm very grateful to the designers and staff who taught me the wonderful skills I now use to create things for my Etsy customers.

    I'm a purveyor of lost memories. It gives me great joy to connect people with items from their past. I price things to be affordable so people can reclaim fond memories or buy heirlooms for a new generation. As an artist I use vintage all materials.

This store is devoted to helping people reclaim their lost memories and retrieve the joy of a simpler time. What better gift can you give to yourself or someone else than to return a piece of the past?

I try to respond the same day I receive a question or email, but since I'm not open 24 hour a day, there may be a delay in response. I'm on East Coast time and will respond as soon as possible because you are important to me.
