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

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.

  1. I have a similar toy stove to the one shown in the first picture. I'll try and send you a photo but would love to see a collection of toy stoves posted here.

  3. White trees need more attention that standard green ones but when they're done right, they're great. This is an example of how to do it right.
