New Arrivals at Birdhouse Books Vintage Store

Just a preview of new arrivals at Birdhouse Books vintage store.   Lots of variety here!   There is a vintage dimestore toy The Big Red Barn by K-Kids.  It is a 1960's to early 1970's vintage toy farm playset - still in package and SUPER cute!

This carnival glass bowl is Indiana Glass Loganberry and it is 1950's vintage, Marigold color.

I have a big lot of these new beaded snowflake ornaments - they are REALLY pretty and beautifully crafted.

This Hallmark ornament is the New Home Hinged Box.

This Hallmark Keepsake ornament is called Snow Buddies.  It has a Snowman and a cute little bunny rabbit.  This is the first ornament in the Snow Buddies series, from 1998, and very collectible.

This Hallmark Keepsake Collection ornament is called Elegance On Ice.  It features a figure skater who resembles Dorothy Hamill.

Some time ago, I purchased a big box of vintage Christmas cards.  When I got them home, I discovered they were cut.  I've broken them down into several VERY LARGE LOTS (25 - 30 cards each) for someone who is interested in purchasing for gift tags, scrapbooking, altered art, or a small framed gift.  They are all 1950's to 1960's Mid-Century in vintage.  There are some beauties here!   Note the reindeer in this photo, and the child looking at a shadow of Santa Claus:

In this photo I especially love the Snowman family, the duet by Santa Claus and a snowman, and the adorable white kitten peeking out of a hat box:

And this lot has my very favorite card!   Check out the old fashioned station wagon with little boy in the back, riding alongside the family Christmas tree.  It has glitter and is an amazing card!

I have Shelia houses!   These houses, crafted by Shelia's, feature historic homes.  This wooden house features the Red Castle in Nevada City, California:

For Gone With the Wind fans, this house features Frank Kennedy Company general store from GWTW:

Again, these goodies and much, much more await at Birdhouse Books vintage store online.
