Over the last couple of weeks we have shared numerous Christmas and holiday decorating themes, amongst our assortment of holiday products. Today, we offer a few items with a nod to yesteryear. Take a step back in time and remember Christmases as a child, appreciate when the holiday season was less stressful, and recall what this special time of year is really all about. Decorating with a bit of retro theme is easy to do with Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
To begin, pictured here to the left is our Holiday Visit Print by Vermont artist Fred Swan. For the fan of Fred Swan, this one is a holiday classic. It’s Christmas Eve circa 1955 and all is aglow in preparation for the big day soon to come. Fred beautifully captures this winter’s night in amazing color, as falling snow blankets the homestead and the family’s yellow lab waits to come inside. One glance at this piece of holiday artwork and it’s like you’re looking at an old family photograph. Smoke billows from the chimney as tonight’s dinner is prepared, and we can see the Christmas tree through the front picture window. A red pick-up truck has been parked in the driveway, and due to its noticeable make and model, it further implies the time period. Our Holiday Visit Print is a giclee print, double matted and set in a black wood-look frame, under glass for just $119.95 with FREE SHIPPING.
Next up is a customer favorite from last season, our unique TV Music Box. Shown here to the left, we find a magical scene inside the glass of the television screen. It’s a fun way to feel like a kid again, reminiscing when TVs looked like this and not a digital flat screen. The snow covered village is complete with ice skaters, carolers, houses with glowing light, and even a revolving train. The dial switch on the base controls the power, light, and volume. Enjoy listening to well known instrumental versions of eight Christmas carols. The faux wood, paneled TV box is adorned with replica buttons and the words “Merry Christmas.”
Be sure to click on the actual product page to receive a close-up look at the miniature land inside. Here, you will also find a demonstration video of the TV Music Box to witness all the action and sound. Available now for $99.95 with FREE SHIPPING, this nostalgic holiday decorative makes a thoughtful gift idea as well.
