Staff Favorites Part 2

Last week we highlighted the favorite Old World Christmas ornaments of our Product Development team, and this week our Sales Team reveals their favorite ornaments and the stories that go with them. Because there are over 1,000 Old World Christmas ornaments, all of them with special meaning, cheeky humor or warm nostalgia, even our own staff members have a hard time only picking one. 

Carla:

Carla was barely able to narrow it down, but selected Santa’s Puppy Love as her favorite, and it’s hard to disagree with her selection. Santa and a new Christmas puppy elicit all the feelings and memories of Christmas surprises, squealing kids, and soft puppy cuddles on Christmas day. The attention to detail on this ornament almost makes the puppy’s tail look like it’s wagging as he tells Santa a secret. We think Santa had a hard time leaving this puppy under the tree!

Brian: 

Brian’s favorite ornament is the corn hole board. Not only because he likes to play corn hole, watches the Championship Tournaments on TV, and hopes it becomes an Olympic sport, but because of the realistic detail in this ornament. The glittering silver hardware in the corners and sleek racing stripes has Brian dreaming of warm summer days and a competitive game of corn hole with friends. 

Watch Brian talk more about this favorite ornament on the Old World Christmas YouTube channel.

Ann:

Ann picked both a blown-glass ornament and a Ginger Cottage ornament (coming this summer for purchase!). The Old Truck with Tree ornament takes her right back to her dad’s quintessential 50-year-old Christmas tree farm complete with an old pick-up truck. Her Ginger Cottage pick was the Ginger Man Grist Mill ornament because it reminded her of stepping back in time during her visit to the working Graue Grist Mill in Illinois. But, instead of grinding grain, this Ginger Cottage produces scrumptious ginger bread men. 

Margaret:

There’s one ornament that Margaret doesn’t pack away after Christmas. The sewing machine is a year-round reminder of her Trinidadian heritage. She is from a generation of self-taught seamstresses, whose machines were a valuable part of their livelihood. Old World Christmas’ sewing machine ornament strongly resembles Margaret’s grandmother’s machine, and stirs up feelings of nostalgia and pride. 

Joe: 

Joe is dreaming of a pristine alpine lake, and selected the Hiking Backpack ornament to represent the adventures he’s taken getting to many different lakes. His father introduced him to backpacking when he was a boy, and it stuck. Joe still backpacks with friends and family and over the years his “Man Quests” have transformed into “Dad Quests” as he passes on the same love for backpacking to his own children.

Erik:

The final pick of the Old World Christmas’ sales team is Erik, who didn’t seem to have trouble picking his favorite ornament, and selected the Country Church. The peaceful building is beautifully detailed with intricate stained-glass windows, glittering soft snow, trimmed in red and finished with snowy green evergreens in back. Erik likes that the Country Church symbolizes Christmas and how it “pops” when it’s on his tree. 

We love that in a whole group of people on the same Sales Team, no one picked the same ornament as their favorite. That’s the beauty of the Old World Christmas ornament collection—it’s vast and varied. There is a story behind each ornament, and they add meaning and beauty to each Christmas tree.
