As always, some wonderful finds. Click on the photos and links.
First up, a fab fold-out brochure arrived in the mail today announcing the latest sale from Bertoia Auctions. Wonderful stuff--May 22 through 24--their annual spring sale. Trains, wonderful tinplate, great putz house building inspiration, dolls, Schoenhut, banks and more--See the catalog here. Next a sliced and diced page filled with vintage Christmas lighting goodness. It's the only page we have from what was a catalog for L.A. Goodman; we believe it is from the early 1950's.
We've never seen some of these fab decorations before. They're followed by a neat ad for Tom & Jerry 1947.
Again, click on the photos and links.
THE LATEST FROM TINY THINGS ARE CUTE; lots of fab stuff.
QUICK SALE--20% OFF--AT BLUMCHEN--In the late 1990's, at the famous Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, we showed a piece of vintage mesh tubing to the owner of a family-owned 'Leonische draht' trimmings firm. Made in the same style and quality as Victorian-era knit wire net tubing, we are pleased to offer this authentic metallic "Trikotine Hohlschlauch".
