Friday's Faves.....Monticello Antiques all decked out for Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Monticello Antiques here in Portland, Oregon.
Their big "A Vintage Inspired Christmas Show" begins Friday November 22nd, 
and I'm hoping to drop in for a peek sometime this weekend.
In the meanwhile, it's already beginning to look a lot like Christmas there so here's a sneak peek.

I really like this old framed Christmas print.

Some vintage tablecloths on a beautiful old chair.

This old cabinet is lovely, and it is stuffed to the brim with vintage Christmas decorations.

Leather and fur Christmas stockings anyone?

Lovely Christmas baubles in a tiered basket.

Many vintage versions of the jolly old elf himself.

So much Christmas decor, so little time...

Aluminum trees were popular when I was a kiddo...
many of them had motors that made them twirl and a spot light to shine on them in various colors.
We were "old fashioned" with our real tree.

Here's some more neutral colored decor.

A little tree in a crystal pedestal bowl.

An old wooden cubby filled with vintage goodies.

This ironstone pedestal bowl with a little tree in it may be my favorite thing.

Wandering the aisles is a wealth of holiday decorating inspiration.

I loved the beautiful leaded glass doors on this cabinet, and again, 
it's filled to the brim with vintage Christmas decorations.

FaLaLa!!!  I never thought of spelling that out in vintage letters until I saw this display!

I hope you enjoyed this little tour of one of my favorite antique malls all decked out for Christmas.

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!

    1. Isn't that the truth! I made one small purchase. I tried to just stick to mostly window shopping and inspiration gathering. Thanks for coming by!

  2. Thanks for sharing such a pretty store. I love the Santas and the paper houses.

  3. Elizabeth,
    Loved all thedisplays. . .but the neutral one with the black, white and tan really caught my eye!!! I, too, am using a subtle Christmas color palette this year!
    How cute is that. . .Fa la la???
    Thanks for taking us along on your virtual shopping trip!!!
    Visiting from Common Ground!!!

    1. Thank you, Patty! I did make one small purchase, but mostly I just come away with lots of ideas!

  5. Oh, I need to head to Monticello soon! I love to go any time of the year but most of all during the holidays. Thanks for taking us with you! I hope you show us what you bought.

    1. Oh, Adrienne, the Hubs brought me there today for the opening day of their Christmas event. There is twice as much as what my photos show...I just looked without buying today, but I'm pondering some things...

  6. Thanks for the tour from your neck of the woods!!! Lovely. My kind of pretty, for sure!!

    1. Thanks, Julie. It's a really fun place....and very close to my house and the best Middle Eastern restaurant in town. YUMMM!
