As always, some oldies but goodies, special requests, new finds and more. Click o the photos amd links.
We were reminded how much we still like vintage arcade games when we came across this 1957 ad for "Chicago Coin's Classic Bowling League amusement machine".
followed by one of our favorite made in Japan Christmas kitsch pieces
from the late 50's; The Twinkle Light Electric Christmas Scene/mirrored
"putz" house--with box--the light bulb burns hot enough to singe the cardboard and
mica "tree"- and for most of these vintage electric houses, it's advisable to put the bulb on a dimmer or use an LED.
Which reminds us of an article Paul Race did back in the day on those dangerous Christmas decorations that were out there in abundance--read more at http://bit.ly/1QgHGwP
And finally a 1913 ad for Harrod's holiday wear. Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
