The Christmas Song

"The Christmas Song" (aka Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) was written in 1944 by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé. The most famous rendition of the song was first recorded by Nat King Cole in 1946. We hope you enjoy our variation on the lyrics.

Antiques resting in an open store;Antique Santa
Old stuff searching is your way,
Country antiques adding more makes you soar,
And rooms dressed up like prior days.

Everybody knows a game board and some country smalls,
Help to make your old home bright.
Folky paint helps increase your hauls,
You’ll find it hard to sleep tonight.

You know antiques are on their way;
You’ve bookmarked lots of goodies on your list today;
And every dealer’s goal is having you spy,
That perfect antique that really makes you fly.

And so we’re offering this stellar site,
To kids from young to ninety-two,
Although it’s been said many times, many ways,
Dig Antiques is for you.


Holiday Joy

The confluence of holidays from Thanksgiving through New Year is a time of joy for us. OK, we admit, it does get a bit crazy too. But there's no doubt about it, we love the excuse it brings to get together with our families and friends. We have different traditions on both coasts and we love them all. Some of our traditions date back to our parents and grandparents while some are relatively new. The older traditions represent our family traditions filled with history. It seems like this same connection is what makes us so passionate about antiques. They are not just things but rather the representation of history. 

Every December we create a new variation on a famous Christmas tune for the Dig Antiques Newsletter. We hope that you enjoy this year's rendition of The Christmas Song. If you are interested in seeing some of our previous creations, you can view them: Wishing you a Merry Christmas. For those who celebrate the Festival of Light, a Happy Hannukah to you. And we especially wish you a happy, healthy, prosperous and antique-filled 2015!
