Besides Halloween, I love Christmas. Anyone interested in a vintage Christmas swap?

Would this run concurrently with the Vintage Halloween Swap, or afterwards?

Would "vintage" be a certain time period here?  I know that the word is defined in many different ways so I just want to be sure.  I'm all over anything 50's thru 70's (which I'm not sure really qualifies as vintage at all) but not so much into earlier periods.

20-50's are my favorite time period for just about anything.  Cheesy Vintage to me is anything from Victorian to 1970's. I refuse to think of 80's as vintage simply because I grew up in that time period  Cheesy, BUT...if someone wants a 1980's Christmas craft, then we can work it in.

Let's do this!

And I agree kittykill - I remember the 80s pretty well too. I am not ready to be vintage!  Tongue

This sounds interesting & I do like the Victorian Era in the 20's & up into the 70's would be fine. Love the Vintage style. So I might be up for this!  Cheesy

I'd definitely be up for this Smiley

I've been buying Christmas-scented candles and room fragrances already, and I just bought Kirstie Allsopp's new Christmas craft book (I'm not sure if she's known outside of the UK, but she was famous for doing lots of property buying programmes on TV and now she's doing a lot of craft programmes too, so she's helping make craft "cool" over here haha) so I'm very excited to start crafting for Christmas  Cheesy

I love vintage Christmas and would love to join depending on how much we'd have to send since I'm in other swaps and I want to make sure I have enough time to devote to crafting.

I would if it's not a huge swap as far as points go.  I tend to enjoy the small or medium swaps best so I'll be watching to see what the requirements are.

I never do the points system. It would be one medium item.
