As always, some wonderful new finds, oldies but goodies, special requests and more. Click on the photos and links.
Okay we admit it...we're a sucker for vintage scrapbooks; they are time capsules unto themselves reflecting the tastes and interests of those who took the time to assemble them. And while vintage Victorian scrapbooks are all the rage, we couldn't pass up this 1970's scrapbook of "Home Decorating Ideas" we recently discovered at a tag sale.
It's in terrible shape but we're dedicated to saving as much as we can and restoring the images when possible! Check out the seventies living room to the right--love that BURNT ORANGE! We hope to have more in the months ahead, including the pop-art/OP-ART wallpaper samples.
That's followed by news about the BERTOIA SPRING AUCTION COMING IN MAY 2022 (5/19 AND 5/20)---featuring a myriad of cross collectible categories ranging from toys to banks, advertising to ephemera, trains to pressed steel, wind-ups and more.
Highlights include a large Coca Cola collection, a huge array of tin wind-ups & penny toys, and a select grouping of toy soldiers. Featured collections by Ray Burgess, Kent Woloson, and Edward Lotz. P.S. THESE OBJECTS ARE A PRODUCT OF THEIR TIMES; if that gives you the vapors, just move along. Woke commentary deleted on sight. For everyone else, see the catalog here.
And finally the sugary spun cardboard castles AND MUCH MORE goodness from PIECEFUL BITS---a wonderful blog; SEE MORE HERE. AGAIN, CLICK ON THE PHOTOS AND LINKS.
