Myer and David Jones have the largest range of Christmas decorations that I have ever seen. You may also try the markets. I know a market here in Victoria have beautiful decorations, that are so beautifully made.
One year at Myers i bought some angels or cherubs which were made by an Italian company Sylvestre. The little angels had linen dresses and each dress was an antique colour like dusty blue, pink and yellow and they had a harp or whatever in their hands and were just gorgeous…very, very, Christmassy. I still have them and love them. That purchase would have been made about 35 years ago.
I always think that some of Aldi's balls are beautiful. Sort of a European take on them. Just gorgeous and some of the occasional things they have for kids like the little tin wind-up Jack in the Box I bought one year. Sort of old world.
Yes, lovely stuff.
Hand made markets are a good place. I often decorate my own. It is quite good fun- visit a craft shop for inspiration or Pinterest as someone else suggested.
I have decorations made by my son almost 30 years ago. I treasure them.
I have bought some pretty special decorations from Myers also.
I haven't had to buy Christmas tree baubles for about 35 years, as I have shopping bags of them in all colours. Each year I'd have a colour theme off just 2 colours, for the tree, & the wrapping papers as well. I always used ribbon on the presents, & ever sticky tape. Now we're never home for Christmas, I don't put up a little tree, as we don't have any room for 1!!! My baubles are too big, for my youngest daughter's (fake) Christmas tree, so I may now have to op shop them!!!
