Happy New Year's Eve! First up, a wonderful Christmas ad from 1947 for Lane--when every woman wanted to start her home with a Lane Cedar Chest--packed with all the things a new bride would need!
It's followed by a rare and fabulous toy that was featured in a previous auction at Croton's own Serioustoyz.com - the "Mechanical Juggling Popeye & Olive Oyl", 1950s, Linemar, Japan, 9"; Popeye balances & spins Olive's chair, 9"--and although Olive was missing her ponytail, sold for $2458.40-- www.serioustoyz.com
And finally a close-up visit to the annual Christmas putz village of Maria-ville, where this is always just enough snow on the ground, the pond is always ready for skating, and it's still alright to say Merry Christmas without offending anyone. (SEE IT ALL HERE).
Again, click on the photos and enjoy!
