So many wonderful things to share; first up, a very early Mickey Mouse doll featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz

If you have serious stuff....

It followed by some barn models offered in a 1920's trade catalog, and perfect inspiration for those of us who construct putz houses from scratch. And then a 1944 war-themed pinball game ad for...INVASION! Click on the photos and enjoy! 

A friend of ours spent Christmas one year in the Philippines and told us that their displays are big, bright and colorful—and to check out this youtube video on the subject here

They also make these Christmas “lanterns” called Parols...

AND AT THE CARDBOARD CHRISTMAS FORUMS--A word from Pete--Hello friends. If you've ever visited Papa Ted's website you probably remember his "House of the Month" section. January of 2005 featured what Papa Ted thought might be the only surviving "Hacienda Lighthouse". Well I found one so we know there are two the, a right handed and a left handed tower. I am posting both for your viewing pleasure.
