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

Happy Saturday! To the right: this wonderful Christmas ad from 1947 for Lane--when every woman wanted to start her home with a Lane Cedar Chest--packed with all the things a new bride would need!

It's followed by a rare and fabulous toy that was featured in a previous auction at Croton's own Serioustoyz.com -  the
"Mechanical Juggling Popeye & Olive Oyl", 1950s, Linemar, Japan, 9"; Popeye balances & spins Olive's chair, 9"--and although  Olive was missing her ponytail, sold for $2458.40-- proof positive that if you have serious stuff, SERIOUS TOYZ HAS SERIOUS BIDDERS!
