As always, some oldies but goodies and wonderful finds for you. Click on the photos and links.
First up a great old Christmas photo courtesy of Heather; WORTH A SECOND LOOK---undated but if we had to guess, late 50's.
It's followed by a 1961 fun animated and musical alarm clock "tv type", then the beautiful Rita Hayworth in a 1941 ad for RC Cola, A GREAT OLD TOY, the 1959 Remco Flying Fox, featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com
And finally an oldie but goodie from Howard Lamey--faux sheep and shepherd! See it from start to finish here http://bit.ly/1A6tBwz
Again, click on the photos and enjoy!
