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

To the right--Sylvain's lovely Christmas tree and village--the houses aren't cardboard but we love it all the same. The tree is followed by another shot from Matthew Und's 2015 Christmas decorations--love the new and very large putz church. And then, a 1947 ad for the thrilling kissing bracelet!

Click on the photos and enjoy.

And here's a wonderful German Smoker - courtesy of Toys and Stuff - Erzgebirge Wooden Postman 'Smoker'- Blogger's everywhere who celebrate Christmas are probably sharing their favorite Christmas tchotchke's and knickknacks just as we've been doing since starting our blog. This little guy however is one of those decorations that can be used all year 'round. It's an incense burner; see this neat smoker and more here http://bit.ly/1QZwYxc

CollectionsEtc. is having their annual after Christmas sale. We always manage to find something neat!

Now admittedly there's quite bit here you won't have an interest in but every now and then you'll spot the perfect accessory for your village--or something that can be re-purposed or trashbashed--and at some of these prices...Check it out for yourself collectionsetc.com/

So we have a friend who swears that next year--hook or crook--she's getting an old fashioned tinsel tree...

Well check them out in just about every color at Mister Nostalgia--for the moment at least--some of these are bound to go fast misternostalgia.zoovy.com and...

Mister Nostalgia also carries new putz houses being made today--and old stock Radko putz houses as well http://bit.ly/1OyJPFQ

MORE VINTAGE CHRISTMAS GOODNESS, WWI, FROM THE DECEMBER 1916 DEUTSCH-AMERIKA MAGAZINE

As promised...more from Deutsch-Amerika---first, here's the back-story again--From back in August of this year: We've acquired a bound volume of German magazines called Deutsch-Amerika. According to USMBOOKS, they're rare issues of the German language weekly magazine, DEUTSCH-AMERIKA published in New York during World War I. Naturally, the magazine was quite pro-German before the US entered the war, then softened its stance as the war went on. You can read more here www.usmbooks.com/deutsch-amerika.html 

UPDATED TODAY: MORE VINTAGE CHRISTMAS GOODNESS FROM the December 15, 1916 edition. Click on the photos below. Needless to say we're looking forward to sharing more in the months ahead; many of the photos have English translations; there are also some great ads, and wonderful Christmas items to come.

YOU CAN SEE SOME MORE PAST SCANS FROM THIS EDITION IN MY FLICKR ALBUM https://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@N07/albums/72157662917573005

LUKOIL IN HARMON TO BECOME SUNOCO STATION

For some time now, an anonymous commenter has repeatedly stated that the Lukoil gas station "across the street from Anton's" had "wisely elected to put up a mixed use apartment complex on the property". In the absence of any documentation verifying these claims, the comments were not posted. If you have heard these rumors...they are simply not true.

As you can see from the photo taken today, the Lukoil gas station is becoming a Sunoco station, not a "mixed use apartment complex", same owners. Click on the photo.
