And so another "vintage" New Year goes into full gear at Everything Croton. So much to show you.
To the right--step back in time to 1914, when the Victor Victrola was magical and cutting-edge. A fabulous old magazine ad that's filled with details....it's followed by Howard Lamey's latest creation--a tiny little putz cottage; you can find the pattern for it here http://bit.ly/178Vd7o - just keep scrolling down the page once you get there.
(Howard also provides the link to the "Pac-o-Fun" edition with all the putz house templates and photos upon arrival at the Cardboard Christmas forums link above.)
And finally Howard's latest is followed by a 1965 pulp magazine ad for the Horrorscope Movie Viewer--one of those things that probably disappointed shortly after arrival, separating a boy from his allowance...
Like the Ovaltine de-coding ring in A Christmas Story. Click on the photos and enjoy.
And now drumroll please. Tom H has loaded photos of his vintage putz house
collection. We guarantee there will be items you have never seen before--and a wonderful German piece or two; click on the links: http://bit.ly/1D2jbOK
