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

With the holiday season around the corner, we're in happy mode. Those of us who collect vintage holiday goodness--especially Christmas houses, lights, etc.--know exactly what we mean.  Yes, yes, we do it all year--but from October forward, it all becomes that much more real.  And above all, we do NOT stress! That just kills all the joy of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. In our house, we just do everything a little at a time starting in July! And of course, all the Christmas music and DVD's that we've collected are stacked neatly in the family room--ready to go at a moment's notice...

Which reminded us of this 1970 ad we came across not long ago from the days when stations like NBC did extravagant holiday productions. Wish this Thanksgiving special was available on DVD (we checked, it isn't--please let us know if it is and we've just missed it!)  It features James Stewart as narrator, hosted by Andy Williams, with Pearl Bailey, Tennessee Earnie Ford, Bobbie Gentry, Burl Ives, Henry Mancini, The Supremes and Dionne Warwick. Click on the images below--because the ad was oversized, we had to scan it in 2 sections.
