MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

Because we can never get enough department store Christmas themed windows, we bring you Kaufmann’s Christmas window (PITTSBURGH, PA) “Toyland” theme, c. 1926-1928. The horse and rider in the middle closely resemble the popular 1920s cartoon characters Barney Google and his horse, Spark Plug. CLICK ON THE PHOTO COURTESY OF THE HEINZ HISTORY BLOG--SEE MORE WINDOWS HERE http://bit.ly/2nRIbHw 

Check out these wonderful Christmas chocolate tins---available today--or at least in 2012—British http://www.flickr.com/photos/foodbev/7459506294/in/pool-98686519@N00/

Now here’s a really rare find; a vintage made in Japan deer – in BLUE! http://www.flickr.com/photos/bringinstufftoyou/3872681594/in/photostream

If you want to see some very interesting putz, and vintage Christmas too, you should check out the CANADIAN EBAY – go to http://www.ebay.ca/ and type in putz—and check it out—of course, some of these prices, in Canadian dollars or not, are a little too rich—but you will see some unusual things here not often found on the US Ebay. We’ve been regularly checking Ebay Canada and coming across some much older putz houses especially. It varies from day to day of course but wow...

VIA CROTON UNITED - A LETTER FROM MAYOR SCHMIDT - UNA CARTA DEL ALCALDE SCHMIDT

A LETTER FROM MAYOR SCHMIDT:

This letter from Mayor Schmidt appears in this week’s issue of the Gazette. A Spanish translation follows the English text. 

To the Editor: Thank you to all who attended the Monday work session of the Board of Trustees.
 
It was wonderful to see a room overflowing with residents, including many families with children, coming to speak out on an issue of concern to them. The civic participation on Monday is the true spirit of American democracy at its finest. Our country was founded because of people who came together just like those who filled the Municipal Building that evening.  READ MORE HERE http://bit.ly/2nl9qsI
