I do most of my Christmas shopping on-line, but I do love to hit up the antique stores around town to look at vintage Christmas decorations and soak up a little old school Holiday flavor. Our favorite antique store around here is Falls Church Antique Center. They always have a great selection.
I loved these little choir girl candles.
This store always has great textiles - I have to control myself to keep from buying up big handfuls of vintage embroidered pillowcases and kitchen towels. I bought a few Christmas themed handkerchiefs.
And then I just drooled over the stacks of other textiles.
Alas, this time of year I need to concentrate on Christmas gifts for others and I don't know too many people with the same rabid love of vintage embroidered cloths that I have. But a few things did make it to my Christmas wish list, and window shopping at any time of year is fun!
