Have a Vintage Thanksgiving
Because Thanksgiving is a family holiday, it is the perfect holiday to decorate with vintage decorations. There are so many holiday decorations that you can collect for Thanksgiving, and use year after year that just add to the pleasure and special family traditions of the holiday. And Ebay sellers have a very large selection of affordable, unique vintage Thanksgiving decorations that are perfect for your holiday.
Since the main focus for Thanksgiving is the big Thanksgiving meal, many of the vintage items that have been used in the past for Thanksgiving are related to food, or the Thanksgiving dinner table. This includes tablecloths, candlesticks, salt and pepper shakers, and lovely vintage platters, and other vintage serving pieces.
Some of the vintage Thanksgiving decorations are extremely inexpensive to collect and use year after year for your family table.
Vintage Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece
The center of the Thanksgiving holiday is the Thanksgiving dinner, therefore the most important Thanksgiving decorations that you need are the decorations for the table. One of the most fun vintage Thanksgiving decorations to collect is the centerpiece for the table, or if your guest list is large, you may need more than one vintage Thanksgiving centerpiece.
You can find a lot of incredible vintage Thanksgiving centerpieces on Ebay including some really beautiful ceramic pieces meant to hold flowers or gourds during the meal as decoration. However, you can also fill them with rolled up napkins and silverware sets, or even a dried flower arrangement that will last the entire Thanksgiving weekend.

Vintage Thanksgiving Platters and Serving Dishes
After the Thanksgiving centerpiece, the next most important Thanksgiving decorations are really not decorations at all, but the Thanksgiving platters for serving your turkey and other traditional Thanksgiving foods. Vintage Thanksgiving platters and serving pieces often have turkeys and other fall decor imprinted on either the edges, the center, or the exterior of bowls or rounded serving platters.
Vintage Thanksgiving platters are available for purchase on Ebay through various Ebay sellers from the very inexpensive to some highly collectible brands that are more expensive. The most difficult vintage Thanksgiving platters to find are entire set in one pattern. So if you find an entire vintage Thanksgiving serving set, snatch it up, don’t wait.
Vintage Thanksgiving Salt and Pepper Shakers

Vintage Thanksgiving Wall Decorations
You can also find vintage Thanksgiving wall decorations, planters, and flat art on Ebay, although Thanksgiving wall art is much harder to find.
What I love to search for the most are vintage Thanksgiving salt and pepper shakers in the forms of turkeys, pilgrims, and Indians. These are very much fun to collect and use year after year. They also make great shelf decorations during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Another popular Thanksgiving theme is the cornucopia basket filled with fruits. You can get a vintage basket and fill it will real fruit or find a vintage cornucopia figurine to put on your table or wall.

Interestingly enough, there are also vintage Thanksgiving ornaments meant to hang from a tree, or a wire hanger that can be used for table decor or in your windows or even just around the house for extra vintage Thanksgiving touches to your home.
You can also use them again for Christmas to add to a vintage Christmas tree. You can also create an unusual table centerpiece from vintage Thanksgiving ornaments hanging from a very small Christmas tree.
