Some great finds. As always, click on the photos and links.
just love vintage department store photos--and so when the request came in for the one "with the hobby horse", we just had to share it again. Here's a shot from 1942 with the quintessential Flexible
Flyer Sled--but what really caught our eye was the price tag for the
fabulous hobby horse--just shy of a hundred dollars!
Quite a sum back in 1942! Check out all the details on the horse in the photo that follows.
Next up, a shot again by special request of Lynn's white Dolly Church putz repro--the pattern is online on http://bit.ly/1YkwX6G in case you missed it back in the day.
And of course we love vintage Christmas textiles, especially those 1950's, 1960's "aprons"...here's a beauty from Angela....again, click on the photos and enjoy.
One more time: Got any of those Lionel, Flyer or Marx billboards that need replacement, or you're just tired of looking at the same ones?
