As always, some wonderful finds. Click on the photos and links.
First up, an oldie but goodie and a rare find indeed.
These vintage Nativity lights are most often found in
brown with a green tree--but these are WHITE, manufactured in Hong Kong
by SONSCO; most likely 1960's-1970's. That's followed next by a fabulous old photo courtesy of the LOC.....
An undated photo of a Christmas and New Year's Card sidewalk seller; if we had to guess, we'd say 1890's to about 1915; we especially love the EMERGENCY BAGGAGE REPAIR SHOP in the background.
That's followed by a fabulous old Christmas window photo circa 1915 to 1920 featuring gorgeous dolls and more. And finally a late 1930's Christmas advertisement for Coca-Cola, beautifully rendered, and of course with their amazing SUNDBLOM Santa Claus icon. Again, click on the photos and links.
A really nice printed vintage assemble yourself printed house courtesy of Toys and Stuff--but what really makes it is the wall!
