So much neat stuff to share--first up, one of Lynn's 2018 Christmas villages!
Outstanding repros of the original made in Japan (or later Dolly Toy Co. made in the US) putz houses.
See all the photos from Lynn's villages here and keep scrolling down the page once you get there.
Next , a close-up of this year's Antique Feather Tree "Brooklyn Bridge putz". Houses by Howard of course! See the rest of it here.
And finally some great vintage Superhero toys from a previous auction at Croton's own Serious Toyz.
Click on the photos and enjoy.
