Aunt Clara’s Christmas Collectibles

August 27, 2021 by Antone Boustani

You have inherited your favourite Aunt’s vintage Christmas deccy collection! OMG!! What are you going to do with these, where are you going to keep them?

Kennards Self Storage Brookvale springs to mind. Kennards have the perfect solution for your storage needs.

•    Perfect size units to suit individual needs
•    24 hour access
•    Alarmed units for security – no one is getting their hands on the deccy’s

You may even want to add to this amazing collection. Kennards Storage can also grow with your addiction! You can upsize your storage unit anytime you like. 

Here are some helpful tips to increase your Christmas collection.

Wherever you are, always have vintage decorations at the back of your mind. Whether you are at a Thrift Store in July, the Flea Market in May, or Garage Sale the week after Christmas. Shop all year long if you want a stellar collection of vintage Christmas ornaments come December.

Just because you don’t see vintage Christmas decorations during the off-season it does not mean the dealers don’t have them. Always ask the vendor if they have holiday decorations. On most occasions Flea Market vendors have a very small selling space.



One of my favourite things to hear while shopping at a Flea Market is: “Make a pile and I’ll make you smile.” Flea Markets are a lot like $2 shops but better. If you buy in bulk, the price gets better. If you happen upon a dealer who has tons of vintage Christmas decor, of course, ask them what their best price is. Phrase it like, “Will you make me a better deal if I buy them all?” and more often than not, they will jump on board.

Our Brookvale self storage centre has been specifically designed and built for superior access - there is an abundance of ground floor spaces and upper levels are easily accessed by generously sized lifts. Undercover loading and unloading areas to protect from the elements. A customer lounge area with complimentary tea and coffee available, and free use of trolleys to make your life easier. 

The building is five levels, purpose-built for self storage. It is fully compliant for fire safety with completely operational fire hose reels, hydrants and detection system for early warning to the NSW fire brigade. In addition, the building is completely fitted-out with fire safety sprinklers. All fire safety systems are regularly tested and maintained to ensure they operate properly. 

Brookvale is a fully self contained lockup building with alarm monitoring, with individual alarmed spaces, CCTV surveillance throughout the centre with back to base monitoring available. The centre is equipped with computer controlled PIN access and security lighting throughout.



Kennards Storage will also cover your first months Insurance Cover cost when you insure your goods in storage at Kennards, up to the value of $30,000.  

Also your Aunt Clara's Vintage Christmas Decos can be stored away in our very durable Kennards Storage moving boxes. With a Box Shop on site you can easily choose what size storage box best suits your needs. We also offer bubblewrap, tape, packing paper and a lock to lock up your unit when you are ready to store with us.
