So many wonderful finds to share with you. As always, click on the photos and links.
long ago we featured a segment on that iconic cigarette salesman--the Philip Morris bellhop, Johnny Roventini. That reminded us of this oldie but goodie--an incredible die-cut lobby card
standing almost four feet tall and in very good condition. It's followed by an outstanding German tin toy, circa 1930's--the Carnival
Rocket Ride by Blomer & Schüler. (It sold for $450 at a previous SeriousToyz auction). Next, an utterly charming vintage die-cut Valentine Card, and finally a fabulous vintage postcard featuring Greta Garbo as Mata Hari.
