Now this is what we call a REAL riding toy...PRESSED STEEL--from Buddy L, 1941--and featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com....it sold for $1,684.75--too rich for your editor's blood but we can dream....

And we just couldn't leave without showing you this--an idea that sounds good but WAS NOT--the DECOREGGER--discovered on one of Rob & Monica's "sale-ing" adventures...

Let it suffice to say it didn't work very well but there are some things in life you simply have to have anyway!

  1. Thanks, Maria! Believe it or not, we have TWO decoreggers!
    Thanks, as always, for mentioning us. We love your blog! (Rob)

  2. Hello Maria

    Thank you so much for mentioning my Flickr photo of the antique Paper Mache Easter eggs from my collections on your delightful Croton blog.

    I am beyond honoured that you would do so. As you know I am all about collecting antique holiday. Because of you, others will appreciate the beauty of vintage things, their invaluable history and collecting.

    If we can accomplish that, we keep the spirit of our past alive. And the fun and rewarding hobby of collecting will live on for future generations.

    Blessings for a joyous Easter
