As always, some wonderful finds. Click on the photos and links.
Just had to once again share this incredible hand made beaded gown and shawl from the 1930's in nearly mint condition. The level of detail from the piping to the seed pearls was astonishing. One of the many beautiful things one used to find at a former village shop known as Treasures & Tales.
It's followed by something completely different--the 1960 Remco “Fighting Lady, The Motorized Assault Battleship”--featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com. It sold at auction for $160.16--33 inches long, missing the gun barrel.
And that's followed by an outstanding vintage Easter display from collector friend Mary B---some very rare pieces here indeed...From the kitschy to the sublime...BUT ESPECIALLY fond of the bunny pulling the cart on the top shelf of the photo. Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
