As always, some wonderful new finds, special requests, oldies but goodies---and more. Click on the photos and links.
First up, a nifty piece of Japanese train toy tinplate--courtesy of a previous SeriousToyz auction. It's the “New Cable Train” (Central Line), 1950s, T.N (Nomura), Japan; train is 12”, litho tin b/o (single D) w/ flexible rubber wire ‘track’ that can be laid out in any shape (train will follow); it ran well but was a very poor design-----still neat to look at though! It's followed by a special request---Howard Lamey's version of the Dolly Co. Balcony House.

That's followed by an oldie but goodie and one of our favorite putz houses----again from Howard Lamey---and based on a vintage made in Japan putz house...Ted's 2001 House of the Month to be specific.
Love Love love the loofa trees! See more and the original house too--again at the Cardboard Christmas foums: http://bit.ly/29n4TQu
Next, a very young Sean Connery in a Christmas ad for Jim Beam Bourbon and of course starring as James Bond in You Only Live Twice, 1966.
(By the way, our friends at EFSP have a fab post on the late Connery here.)
And finally, an unused--and still unopened--2015 calendar for A CHRISTMAS STORY--that we discovered in a local thrift shop some time ago---of course, at twenty-five cents, you know this was not left behind! Again, click on the photos and links.
A fab project for Valentine's Day from PAPER GLITTER GLUE---THE LLAMA CANDY BOX---LOVE---LOVE--LOVE THIS! SEE IT AND MORE HERE.
