It's hard to believe that February is almost over--with Easter on March 27th this year, it will soon be time to decorate.
To the right, the 2013 Vintage Easter Putz; barns on the left and right by Howard Lamey, candy container repro putz houses by Karl Fey; with vintage salt cellars, figurines, and German lead rabbits. The lustre-ware houses are salt and pepper shakers, vintage 1950's, made in Japan. Click on the photo.
That's followed by another great find: as many of you know, actress Gloria Swanson lived in Croton. As a matter of fact, we recently discovered an article that featured (exterior) photos of her home in the village. Click on the link bit.ly/1QK6VdP.
And finally another great find--the 1947 Aladdin's Lamp Chantelaine! Click on the link bit.ly/20Z4HXr
