Growing up in Frankfurt, Ohio, which was originally known as Old Town, Vickie was always fascinated by old things – old houses, old furniture and old toys. She remembers some of the first old Santa figures she ever saw and feeling the strong connection they brought between the present and so many long-ago Christmases past. Although she loved those old holiday gents, she really couldn’t afford them so she decided to make just one Santa. That was over 20 years ago, and there is always just one more! Along the way, vintage Halloween became another interest and passion. It’s such a fun way to express her creativity.
