We hope you’ll feel like a kid at Christmas again as you browse our site chock full of holiday movie memorabilia and other Christmas kitsch.
We started this crazy little business back in 2007 as the Canadian Leg Lamp Company. The genesis came while we were shooting our fan film Road Trip for Ralphie. Back then, we were shocked to discover that full-size leg lamps (as seen in A Christmas Story) weren’t for sale in Canada, so we set out to change that!
Fast-forward five years and we’ve branched out into other retro holiday fare. Once leg lamps took off, we introduced moose mugs (from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation) and the response was phenomenal. Now we’re constantly on the look out for unique Christmas movie memorabilia.
If you’re like us, you have fond memories of Christmases past, when you settled in with your family to watch cherished Christmas classics like Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown and the Grinch. Or maybe you remember trekking to the theatre to see big holiday releases like A Christmas Story, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and Home Alone.
They just don’t make movies like those anymore! That’s why we delight in watching them over and over again, year after year. They remind us of our youth; of innocence somehow lost.
We hope you’ll rediscover a piece of that innocence while shopping with us. While you’re here, why not pick up some gifts for your loved ones, or just for yourself. We’re always posting new items, so be sure to check back often. (Hint: you can also “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter).
And please tell your family and friends about us okay? We don’t have mega marketing bucks, so we rely on word-of-mouth from folks like you.
We often get letters from customers and fans who say how much they love our website. We’re happy to hear that! It’s a labour of love for us, and it’s always nice to hear encouraging words. So please, drop us a line some time!
