It may be too late for you to get your child into a pair of these this winter; but there’s always next year to make him or her freak out everyone else on the sledding hill. (Can you only imagine if they were knit from wool?!) From Fleisher’s Baby Book, Infants To 4 Years, Volume # 101; copyright 1957, Fleisher Yarns, Inc.
In this vintage promotional piece for The Sands, Baby New Year’s bottle of 1954 was held just out of reach. …Ah, back when Vegas was for adults & not kids.
We brought in two retro reindeer to our space in the antique shop — and they both sold in less than a day! The good news is that I had snapped some pics. And the pretty white one with the large eyes is even available on a card at Zazzle! (Use code ZAZCYBER2014 to save up to 65% Off Amazing Products — sale ends tonight at Midnight!) Keep an eye on our antique shop blog to find what other cool vintage and retro Christmas items we have available this holiday.
Part of our back to school display is this teacher’s edition of Hay Wingo. (Clowns are terrifying by themselves; mix them with phonics and doh!) Our price is waaaaay lower than either Ebay or Amazon. So contact us directly or the shop at (218) 998-3088 (between 10 am & 5 pm everyday, Central Time) to snatch this one up!
A vintage plastic hat — yes, entirely plastic! Even the inside — it’s like a weave of plastic! (The very sight of it made my head itch!) White plastic lily of the valley bells topped by green leaves, it even matches its nifty hatbox! Spotted at The Olde Store in Hales Corners, Wisconsin.

Normally I post this sort of sexist stuff over at Kitsch Slapped. But I felt general kitsch lovers might like this too.
