How to buy a vintage Christmas present for your grandma
A Christmas tree for your grandmother could be a very good thing.
The tree could also become a source of nostalgia for your parents or grandparents.
It’s a trend that has been gaining traction across the US and Australia in recent years.
A Victorian woman named Victoria Flower Shop, a popular vintage shop in Melbourne, sold the oldest Christmas tree to the city in December 2016 for $30,000.
Victoria Flower Shop owner Victoria Flower, a former Christmas tree seller, is now the owner of Victoria Flower Tree Company.
“I didn’t think it would ever be something that people would want to own, but it’s become something that we’ve been wanting to own for a while,” Flower told ABC News Australia.
In a post on her website, she said the tree was an homage to the Christmas season, with the words “I Love You and You Are Mine” written on the tree.

She said it was a “perfect opportunity” to share her heritage with her customers.
But not everyone is happy with the idea of a Victorian Christmas tree.
“I think it’s kind of a bad joke and it’s not something I’m in favour of,” a customer named Caroline told ABC.
Caroline is from New Zealand, and the tree has a Victorian theme to it.
We’re a little bit more liberal with things, Caroline told the ABC.
“I would like to see the tree go back to what it was in New Zealand.”
Victoria Flower Tree, the oldest ever Christmas tree in Australia, has been on display for four years in Victoria’s Melbourne CBD.
Last year, Victoria Flower bought the oldest one on display in the world.
More recently, Victoria’s oldest tree sold for $5 million at auction.
