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

In case you missed it, the latest "repro"/interpretation of a vintage putz houses created by The Dolly Toy Co. Along with two of his marvelous "flattie" reproductions. 

See it from start to finish, including the vintage original, plus template, here http://bit.ly/2vzdFpo - It's followed by several photos from an attendee at the 2017 Golden Glow of Christmas Convention in Ashville...there are some killer vintage flocked artificial trees--and an outstanding vintage pink aluminum tree from one of the Christmas Museum Rooms...

And more from Croton-on-Hudson's silent film past a'la Gloria Swanson, one of our most famous residents. 

Click on the photos and enjoy.
