As always, some wonderful finds. Click on the photos and links.
By special request, an oldie but goodie. It took us a while to find this one again....Yes you too can own your own GENUINE OFFICIAL U.S. GOVERNMENT SURPLUS ASTRONAUT SPACE SUIT! From 1963, originally $183, now only $7.95!
It's followed by--again a special request--this fabulous CHEIN bit of tinplate, outstanding graphics, rarely seen--THE PLAYLAND WHIP, 1940's--and certainly rarely seen in such great shape--featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com--it sold for $648.48
It's followed by an oldie but goodie; a scene from Antoinette Stockenberg's 2014 Christmas putz mantle--BECAUSE INSPIRATION IS A GOOD THING and all of Antoinette's annual mantles are worth repeat visits!

And finally courtesy of seriousToyz, the Kit Kat Clock by California Clock Co., circa 1970s; it sold at auction for approximately $111 a few years back. Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
