First up, an oldie but goodie and one of our favorite houses by putz artisan Howard Lamey--it's a beauty, complete with a raffia fence--just like the original putz house that inspired him. You can see the original---and this inspired repro--from start to finish here. It's followed by a 1948 ad for the Wonder Window Television by Stewart Warner...click on the photo--for those who don't know, the "wonder" was apparently the screen folded away and out of sight.
AND FINALLY, courtesy of Joe Haupt, the very vintage Texan Double Holster Set By Halco--With Two Pinto Toy Cap Pistols, The Halpern Company, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Made In USA, Circa 1950s. In super minty condition too.
Again, click on the photos and links.
