Why You Should Become a Member

WHILE WE WELCOME EVERYONE to browse our website and see a sampling what our collectors have to offer, if you really want to be a part of the Golden Glow, then you should consider becoming a member. As a vintage and antique Christmas collectors club, The Golden Glow of Christmas Past® has something for every level of collector.

By joining the Golden Glow on an annual basis, you will receive a subscription to The GLOW, our vintage Christmas collecting magazine, which is mailed in even-numbered months. The GLOW is filled with wonderful articles and pictures provided by our knowledgeable members. It includes information on new research, collecting tips, services, and news about current happenings and other collectors.

As a member of The Golden Glow of Christmas Past®, you can attend and participate in our Annual Convention hosted by members in a different Continental US city each year, usually in July, but occasionally in August. Convention registration fees are separate from and in addition to the Golden Glow membership annual dues. Golden Glow conventions are a great place to connect with like-minded people and talk about everything Christmas. It’s our way of celebrating Christmas in July (or August)! Meet new collectors or catch up with old friends. Find out what’s new in the world of Christmas collecting. Break out the eggnog, mistletoe, and rock around the Christmas tree! Enjoy the camaraderie of networking with other collectors of vintage and antique Christmas and learning from your peers.

When you join The Golden Glow of Christmas Past®, the gifts just keep on coming. As a member, you will have the opportunity to buy back issues of The GLOW Magazine or peruse our Newsletter/Magazine Archive with issues going back to July 1980! This archive is an invaluable resource of information for the vintage and antique Christmas collector.

If you are a dealer, another great benefit of becoming a member is having the opportunity to list your website on our Vendors Directory. This is a wonderful place to get some extra exposure for your business. If you sell old Christmas lights, ornaments, and decorations, you simply MUST be connected with the Golden Glow membership! We have a very active exclusive members-only Vintage Christmas Marketplace on Facebook and our Annual Conventions are the biggest vintage Christmas buying/selling event on the planet!

So what are you waiting for? Join right now−the magical world of our vintage and antique Christmas collectors organization is only a few clicks away!
