Vintage Winter was first envisioned during the epic snowfall of 2003. Two outdoor enthusiasts, friends with a shared passion for winter sports and sporting-related antiquities hatched the idea to create a free online virtual museum for fellow collectors, academics and those who love the active outdoor lifestyle and design. To fund this endeavor, we decided to sell some of our favorite items collected over the years. We've added to the collection of items for sale, bringing in select newly made products and custom handmade home decor.
We proudly offer some of the finest vintage and antique winter sports items available - the types of items that add great character in home decor and make excellent special occasion gifts. Our - available to purchase - collection includes: wooden antique skis 1800s-1900s, true bamboo and hickory vintage ski poles, lace-up leather ski boots, Native First Nation and Early American antique snowshoes, wooden ice axes and vintage climbing gear, decorative and functional sleds and classic wooden toboggans. With our items, we are always looking for the best combination of history and style to achieve decorative value.
The Ski Decor category has our collection of unique furnishings, accents and gifts that will appeal to cabin owners, ski condos, and anyone decorating or visiting humongous alpine lodges. Some of these items make great presents as well.
Our goal is to create a collective resource for enthusiasts, interior designers, museums, ski history organizations and online exhibits to Discover, Learn, Collect and Enjoy unique sporting antiquities.
Vintage Winter is more than just a collection of vintage ski equipment for sale. We continually pursue learning and sharing regarding the history of these pieces to each customer and guest of our website.
