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

The premiere of Walt Disney's Pinocchio really packed them in--if you can believe the claims found in this two page spread promoting the1940 film. Click on the photo.

It was the second animated production by Disney--Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was in 1937--and was added to the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" in 1994. Click on the photo.

Another way to clean/restore your putz houses: Some years back, Tom Hull wrote an article on this subject for Papa Teds site.  Here's the link:

My friend Brian did some amazing restoration work on some vintage Nativity pieces; check out the before and after here https://www.flickr.com/photos/9753875@N ... 378369757/ and here https://www.flickr.com/photos/9753875@N ... 378369757/
