As always, some wonderful new finds, oldies but goodies, special requests and more. Click on the photos and links.
First up, by special request, and from Matthew Und—one of his amazing 2016 Christmas villages—while
the putz churches are new, they’re still beautiful! WE JUST LOVE THIS CUT-OUT EFFECT.
That's followed by the Easter 2017 putz village, featuring many new and vintage pieces. And yes, we're already planning this year's display.
And finally the Bertoia Spring Auction--featuring toys, trains, HOLIDAY, bears, and more, is April 8th and 9th. The Santas and trains alone are worth the visit. But there is also so much "architectural" inspiration for your future putz house projects in many of the toys and banks.
As always, some of these items reflect the times they were created in. If that sort of thing has the potential to give you the vapors, do NOT go any further. For everyone else, click on the press release and catalog links above.
