Vintage collections are my favorite, so it only makes sense that I wanted a collection of vintage Santa mugs. They are not easy to find, but I will share where I have found some of my favorite pieces along with ways to style them in your home.

My First Vintage Santa Find
This large vintage Santa head was the one that started my collection. I had been searching for months, so when I found this tucked away on the top shelf of a Goodwill, I was beyond excited!
Vintage Santa Mugs Galore
I went months and months with out finding any santa mugs. Granted, I was only looking at estate sales and garage sales to stay within my budget because I know I wanted more than just a few. My luck changed one day when I hit a house hold sale of a vintage loving collector. The owner had beautiful collections of antique silhouettes, cookie jars, books, and Santa mugs!
A Santa Mug Collection Dream Come True
I could not believe my eyes! A collection I though would take years was sitting right there in front of me, and it was all for sale! As if it couldn’t get any better, it was nearing the end of the last day so they were willing to make deals. I ended up getting 15 vintage Santa mugs and a set of santa salt shakers for only $30! Thats only about $2 a mug, not to mention the time saved from a one stop shop!
How to Display a Vintage Santa Mug Collection
I have had this collection is storage for so long, just waiting for our first Christmas at our Farmhouse. This year I decided to display them on my vintage inspired mug rack from Decor Steals with a little coffee/ cocoa bar set up underneath. I love this set up of some of my favorite things, including my Smeg kettle, Cozy Cabin candle, and some faux greenery.
A vintage Santa collection would also look great displayed on open shelving in the kitchen, a dining room cabinet, on a coffee table, or on a stool under the tree. Check out how I used a Santa mug in our Christmas Bedroom HERE!
