Collecting Vintage Holiday Gift Boxes

Delightful 1950s Christmas Gift Boxes Popular Among Collectors of Vintage Holiday Collectibles 

The best time to buy vintage Christmas collectibles is in July or as far away from "tis Season". I get all mushy for older holiday gift boxes, especially circa 1950s.  Perhaps it is simply a flashback to childhood joyful times pulling at my heartstrings.

This 1950s Christmas gift box was spotted at The collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Ct and photographed by C. Dianne Zweig.

    I too get ga-ga over 1950s cardboard boxes. I love the graphics. Absolutely.
