Topping the Christmas Tree with Vintage
If you are decorating your Christmas tree with vintage Christmas ornaments, then the most important vintage Christmas tree ornament is the vintage Christmas tree topper. Luckily, there are a lot of terrific vintage and antique Christmas tree toppers available on Ebay to top your vintage Christmas tree.
Many people like to top their Christmas trees with a star. If you fall into that group, you will be glad to know that vintage Christmas tree topper stars are one of the most abundant choices on Ebay. Some of the star Christmas tree toppers even light up. Stars have always been popular tree toppers so there is a large selection on Ebay.

Vintage Angel Tree Toppers
Christmas angels have been topping Christmas trees for ages, and in all sorts of materials. Ebay sellers really show off this variety of Christmas angels in their vintage shops.
Although some of the vintage Christmas angel tree toppers are made of plastic, I really like the glass tree toppers. There are numerous angel tree toppers to choose from including some lighted angel tree toppers. I actually think that the vintage and antique angels are more beautiful and evocative than the modern ones.
With the antique and vintage Christmas ornaments, we also see how many different cultures and eras have depicted the angel throughout history.

Glass Indent Tree Topper
Some of the most interesting tree toppers are not angels or stars, but glass indent tree toppers. These Christmas tree toppers have a spire at the top coming out of a circular base. The style of the tree topper depends on the era it was made, and the country of origin. These glass indent tree toppers come in a variety of colors and ornamentation.
If you are decorating a Christmas tree for children in the family, you may choose a vintage plush tree topper. These vintage plush tree toppers are usually characters from a Christmas story, angels, or Santa Claus. They are very whimsical, and add a lot of character to your vintage Christmas tree.

Eclectic Vintage Christmas Trees
Personally, I think that it is a lot more fun to decorate a Christmas tree with vintage ornaments if you are willing to be a little eclectic. It is the combination of all of the vintage and antique ornaments and tree toppers that makes it so much fun.
However, some people like to have a themed vintage Christmas tree. All versions of Santa Claus, or all one color, or all from one era. If you decorate your vintage Christmas tree this way, it will take you longer to find all the ornaments you need, but the hunt for the perfect Christmas ornament, and tree topper is a lot of fun in itself, and can last you years collecting the perfect additions to your tree.
