Are tacky Christmas sweaters making a comeback?!

VERMONT (CNN) - You know that sweater your grandmother gave you with the huge reindeer with bells on it? well, we hear that ugly Christmas sweaters are making a comeback.

It's a strange but popular trend-- where folks wear the tackiest clothes imaginable to their Christmas parties.

Annie Marie Blackman sews tacky Christmas sweaters in Vermont--and her creations may be the most gaudy you've ever seen.

She looks all over for gently used sweaters then adds her own special touch.

"You really can't make a mistake when you're decorating an ugly Christmas sweater. You can never have too many bells on a sweater. You can never have too much fringe," says Blackman.

Blackman ships thousands of her sweaters worldwide for about $35.

Though the extra tacky ones can cost up to $80.
