So many wonderful things to share today; on your right, one of our favorite characters from the life-sized nativity at Holy Name of Mary Church in Croton--just love all the detail in the clothing and the arms....

That's followed by one of our favorite creations from Howard Lamey of barn and peak roof house, always worth a 2nd look.

And finally, featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SERIOUSTOYZ.COM, THE "Untouchables Battery Powered Tommy Gun with Real Submachine Gun Sound", c.1960, BY Marx. It sold for $696.64. 

Proof positive that if you have serious stuff, SERIOUSTOYZ.COM has serious bidders. 

Click on the photos and enjoy.

For fans of actor Steve Cochran, the proverbial tough guy:
