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

We've said it once, we'll say it again, we loved THE UNTOUCHABLES.

To the right--by special request--an oldie but goodie--and from a previous auction @ Croton's own Serioustoyz, the “Official Untouchables Mechanical Arcade” Target Game, c.1960, Marx, 21”, tin & plastic w/u; shoot metal BBs at rotating targets; graphics shows Robert Stack as Elliot Ness. It's followed by a a great 1930's Christmas ad for the Hohner piano accordion--for life long pleasure and popularity(!)---and then the latest PACK-O-FUN putz house from Howard Lamey.


Click on the photos and enjoy. (SEE CURRENT and PAST PACK-O-FUN PUTZ HOUSE PROJECTS HERE)

And to the reader looking to make a fuax flattie Chimney Sweep, here you go, courtesy of the forums and Howard Lamey http://bit.ly/1Bvn8dL 

And from TOYS AND STUFF, a real treat: A Memorial Day parade on their train layout--as a small way to pay tribute to our fallen war heroes and as a way to break out and display toys that otherwise sit in boxes most of the year. Some superb vintage pieces here--see it all at http://toyconnect.blogspot.com/2018/06/train-time-2018-memorial-day-parade-on.html

You simply have to get over to Silvercrow Creations---where vintage and antique Christmas what-nots and crafting inspiration goodies are in abundance.
