20 days left until the Excitement erupts with cries of glee from little voices all over the world!  SANTA has come and left gaily wrapped gifts underneath their trees!!!!  

This being one of the busiest months for Santa, it seems only fair to give him a helping hand!  To this end I have been busy finding AWESOME Etsy vintage shops for those who appreciate wonderful things from our past. 

THERE IS A SHOP I found with some of the most interesting Vintage items in it I have seen in a very long time!  This very special item!  A 1920's Charles Dickens Christmas Book which was illustrated by the famous illustrator A.A. Dixon!  Who wouldn't be ecstatic unwrapping this beautiful Dickens book?

Not many of Dickens Christmas Books on the market and in such terrific condition, making this copy truly a highly prized gem to add to someone's  growing Classic Literature collection!  This comes to you from a beautiful vintage shop called BiminiCricket!  

Following on the "Dickens" thread over at GrannasCupboard shop you will be delighted to find a veritable collection of Vintage Dickens inspired ornamental pieces as well as this version of Betsy Trotwood's Cottage!  For those who are collectors of all things Dickens and Dickens inspired, these pieces are truly amazing. Imagine your Christmas decor with some of these wonderful and collectible pieces!  For that special collector who may be on your list as one who would appreciate such a gift, this would be a feather in your cap!
At the Bazl shop I found more collectible decor ornamental pieces, this one especially charming and highly collectible is this Colonial Williamsburg Courthouse Miniature.  Isn't it grand?  Who as a collector wouldn't want to own this for their very own?
From TheSecretGardenEtsy comes this absolutely delightful and highly collectible Antique German Bisque Doll with bath accessories!  Adorable for that special someone on your list who would delight in its ownership!

And in keeping with wonderful Americana miniatures, look what I found at the OldWorldCountry shop, this fantastic miniature of  an Amish Quilt Shop for your Quilting friend who would simply be thrilled to bits with this as a gift from you!
If you or someone you know collects all things Amish, it is at the Old World Country shop you'll find more Amish miniatures!  

As you can readily see, I was in a collection mood when browsing and any of these wonderful pieces would make precious gifts to receive..

Etsy has hundreds and hundreds of Vintage shops for your browsing and buying passions....why not think Vintage this Christmas for those above the age of 15, possibly such a gift might begin someone on the Collector's journey or even the appreciation for all things from our past, like "Dickens" of course or historical significance such as Colonial Williamsburg?
