Rating
A Very Vintage Christmas embodies the nostalgia and sentimentality associated with the holiday season. Vintage ornaments, lights, decorations, and cards all conjure up happy memories of Christmases past and serve as tangible mementos of holidays shared with family and friends. The book helps the everyday collector and enthusiast to build their own collection and offers tips on making the most of what they've got. A common thread runs through the chapters: the love of beautiful holiday decorations, and the interest in their history, value, and preservation.

About the Author

Bob Richter's passion for collecting holiday decor began as a boy. One day his father, who would take him to auctions, handed Bob a box of beautiful ornaments, including a blue jay, a Santa Claus, some bells, and other special figures, and said, "It's time you started collecting something and I know you like Christmas." So collect he did-and still does. That original box has grown into a collection that hovers at around 2,500 and counting. Regularly featured in media outlets including the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, The Huffington Post, The Associated Press, Redbook, the Boston Globe, FOX, CBS, ABC, and HGTV, Bob delights in sharing antiques, design, and bargaining advice. As "The Designer" and breakout star of the PBS series Market Warriors, Bob uses his personality and expertise to strike deals at flea markets all over the country and he remains a fan favorite. He also hosts Flea Market Minute and Minute Makeover. As a correspondent for The Huffington Post, he writes for the Home, Style, Travel, and Arts sections. He is also a Tastemaker for "Vintage and Market Finds" on the high-end shopping portal One Kings Lane where he curates special sales with art, antiques, and rescued objects. Specializing in a marriage of comfort and smart design, Bob offers up a fresh take on living with "stuff." His tongue-in-cheek mantra, "More is More," speaks to his love of art and antiques, which he culls from around the globe. As a contributor to PBS.org, Bob has profiled Pop Artist Peter Max, written about art pottery, WWII collecting, vintage Christmas decor, vintage clothing, and more. He has also served as Guest Editor of NYCArts and offers antiques advice in eHow and The Intelligent Collector.
