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

With many thanks to Heather, we just had to share this vintage Christmas card from the Hughes Family--believed to be from the late1940's, early 50's. Complete with bottle brush trees, a billboard and what we believe are Barclay figures! It's the first "putzy" Christmas card we've ever seen.

It's followed by a  great ad from 1919 for Charms Candy--Trim your tree with Charms!  Click on the photos. Enjoy!

  1. That Charms ad artist looks very familiar to me. Do you have a name?

  2. The Hughes family Christmas card is incredible. The car in the foreground is a Hubley LaSalle from before the War, one of my very favorite toy cars ever. It is apparently the last Hubley toy to feature nickel plated components, namely the individual headlight pods.
