More Retro Christmas fun!

Country Home magazine has a story in this month’s issue about these little collectibles call Putz houses. They are made of cardboard, so they are extremely fragile, and were originally sold in five-and-dime stores in the middle of the century for a few cents each, and are just so charming I couldn’t resist them! Apparently I’m lucky to find one with the tree still in tact–since they’re so delicate, many of the little intricacies don’t last. Score!  I mean, they’re miniature, retro, and Christmas themed. What more do I require? I found these at the Trussville Antique Mall for about $8 each. Yay!
