Gift Guide for the Vintage Junk Lover

Gift Guide for the Vintage junk lover copy

Today I’ve got a fun Christmas Gift Guide for all those vintage junk lovers out there!  You know who you are…and you also know that you are incredibly hard to buy for, right?!  The gifts we junk-lovers want for Christmas is NOT found at the mall or in the Amazon Gold Box. Our loved ones have to dig around in the local thrift shops and antique stores to find our dream gifts.  So, instead of making them dig, I’ve assembled a great big list of all the best stuff right here in one convenient spot. Enjoy!

  1. Handmade Pine Bread Boards
  2. French Drying Rack
  3. Solid Beechwood Measuring Spoons
  4. Barnwood Christmas Trees
  5. Dirty Annie’s Sugar Scrub and Lotion (these smell incredible and have such cute labels!)
  6. 5″ Metal Scissors with Cover
  7. Cotton Tape Measure ribbon on a wooden spool
  8. 8.5″ Metal Scissors with Cover
  9. Spool of Cotton Ribbon with Ornament Print
  10. Arrow Bottle Stopper (I know it’s not vintage… still it’s cool)
  11. Spool of Cotton Ribbon with Merry Christmas Print
  12. Wire Pendant Light
  13. “Life is Very Short” Beatle’s Song Lyric Sign
  14. Pine Wood Baguette Boards
  15. Galvanized Zinc Olive Buckets

If this guide appeals to you, you should share it on social media and give your loved ones the hint. I would like one of each, please! I already have a few similar items in my house, so here’s some ideas for displaying them.

A bread board looks great against the kitchen backsplash.


Barn wood Christmas trees fit in any little corner of my holiday home decorations.

I’ve had my “Life is Very Short” Beatle’s quote sign for years, and I love it so much.  Such a great daily reminder to enjoy life and don’t sweat the small stuff.  This one is not exactly like the one in the guide but it’s close!


Olive buckets on an old crate make excellent plant stands… (and yep, I keep my son’s school snacks in a basket ready to grab-n-go for convenience.)

Currently my bread boards are displaying our gingerbread house village on the kitchen table.
