Ugly Christmas sweaters are a holiday must-have

Posted: Updated:

Whoever thought that 1950s ugly Christmas sweaters would be worn out by 2012 is totally wrong! These sweaters have become a mainstream trend for the past few years and are a must-have for the holiday!

They were reintroduced to the metro-Detroit area by a couple of men who hosted an ugly Christmas sweater party back in 2001.  And now, in 2012, everyone is throwing their own ugly sweater parties, making these vintage garments very hard to find in stores around the holiday season.  

Kim Mitchell, from V-Male Detroit Vintage, joins FOX 2's Jason Carr with a huge selection of ugly, and a few not-so-ugly, Christmas sweaters.  She also brings an array of holiday ties, vintage aprons made anywhere from the 1940s-1970s, and sweaters designed with Rudolph, Santa, and even Looney Toons that can all be found at V-Male.

The price of one of these ugly Christmas sweaters ranges anywhere from $8 to $22 at their store, depending on the design of the sweater.  Be sure to visit V-Male, in Dearborn, during their 12 Days of Christmas sale--going on now-- to get your ugly Christmas sweater and other trendy, vintage, holiday gifts!
