We're perusing those old Christmas ads again and this is one of our favorites: A 1936 Christmas ad for RCA Radios -- complete with train --  when radio ruled.

It's followed by a wonderful French Happy New year postcard we found at the Peekskill flea market.   Pre-World War One. 

And finally a great wind-up 1950's Santa Claus toy always worth a second look--featured in a previous auction at Croton's own “Santa Claus” Bell Ringer, 1950s, TN (Nomura), Japan, 7", w/u w/ “Merry Christmas”, C9; it sold for $445.76 at auction.

Plus a Sneak Peak at Dianne's Annual Christmas Villages.

Click on the photos and enjoy. 

A page full of antique – and other – Christmas finds---artfully presented--because who knows, you may find yourself in Tennessee or Kentucky
