Vintage Christmas in July

Well, it’s that time again.  As if Christmas didn’t come quickly enough, we feel like we have to talk about it every July as well!  I don’t know about you, but this heat wave we’re having around here is enough to make me dream of the temperate weather of Christmas.

I have always loved vintage Christmas ornaments, decorations and doo-dads.  So, it should be no surprise that I keep The Home Gnome chock full of them as well!  We have lots of Shiny Brites, stuffed reindeer, pixies,Christmas cards, Christmas stockings, gift tags and more.

Now, these items won’t be available again until July 1st, but why don’t you just take a look and see some of the fabulous things we’ll have for you this year??

Vintage Men’s Clothing: Classic Style

How fortunate am I to have the hottest male model around, available 24/7?

Ruffled Tuxedo Shirt

He looks fabulous in vintage styles

and, he loves bunny rabbits…

James and Hyacinth, fitted white dress shirt

I’ve been on a kick lately, to find nicely fitted vintage clothing for James.  It’s hard to find–new or used!  Of course, we love the style of the clothing on BBC’s Sherlock (Spencer Hart, Dolce and Gabbana…a bit out of our price range).  Actually, those lovely clothes are out of lots of folks’ price range, so sometimes we have to make do.

Expedition Jacket

Speaking of British style, here’s the perfect expedition jacket.  Vintage styling, trim fit.  Excellent condition!

Vintage plaid shorts

Here’s a bit more of a relaxed look, while still keeping it together stylishly.  Trim fit plaid walking shorts for men.  Aren’t they nice?  🙂

Monk strap shoes

Pull the look together with these gorgeous monk strap dress shoes.  Beautiful!

All of these pieces and more (cuff links, bow ties, etc.) will soon be in the shop.  Be sure to stop by and ask about any specific items that you don’t see listed yet!
