So much to share with you today--keep it coming--we NEVER get tired of vintage!
To the right, a page from a 1917 Journal of Electricity featuring a Christmas window filled with Western Electric products for gift-giving.
We enhanced it as best we could and especially love the "Junior Range" for little girls, a pre-cursor of the 60's Easy Bake Oven no doubt(!) http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2015/04/1966-little-girls-pretend-kitchen-easy.html
Next up, an outstanding white Christmas tree with putz house decorations and putz village beneath--from Matthew. We're not usually crazy about white trees but this one is quite exceptional.
It's followed by a great poster from 1943. Click on the photos.
As many of you know, Radko made a number of vintage Christmas light reproductions; here's an album from Mark--but first a description: Some of these photos are mine and some are from some friends who have
sold items on eBay, so they were obtained from there. Interesting set
includes the original Radko Shiny Brites including Snowmen, Santas, Glo
Brites, Twirl Brites, Twirl Brites with star reflectors, Star Lites,
Candle Lights and Blinking Bells. None of these light sets are
currently being manufactured with the exception of a short run of bubble
lights in 2011. All the rest have been discontinued as well as Bubble
light trees and candoliers.
