Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton -- our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship -- in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON! The Our Saviour Evangelical Lutheran Church Christmas Fair is set for December 7th. HERE ARE THE DETAILS!
An important annual fundraiser, this event is one of the highlights in the local holiday shopping scene. In addition to White Elephant, new, and hand-crafted items, there's also some of the best baked goods around for miles because...we all know that "church ladies" can bake! There will also be vegan food offerings, and a table of fair trade products for gift-giving.
All that being said, here's a sneak peek at something very special being offered at this year's sale. An extensive and very minty collection---click on the photos--from the mid-1960's and The Ideal Toy Company's "Petite Princess" Fantasy Doll House furniture and accessories line. It's an opportunity to own a piece of vintage toy history! During the post–World War II baby boom era, Ideal became the largest doll-making company in the United States. Their most popular dolls included Betsy Wetsy, Toni, Saucy Walker, Shirley Temple, Miss Revlon, Patti Playpal, Tammy, Thumbelina, and Crissy.
But back to the furniture---From a brochure: “Petite Princess Fantasy Furniture is hand crafted of satins, brocades, porcelain, brass, glass mirrors, and other fine materials. You will find soft, plush chairs and sofas, gilt-edged mirrors, dressers and cabinets with drawers and doors that really open and close. Everything you can dream of. Perfectly made, so you can play with it, collect it, and be the perfect Petite Princess."
