The group I'm listing now is part of the extensive collection of a very talented lady in Tulsa who loved Christmas and decorated enthusiastically for many years. She has moved into assisted living and had to dispose of many of her treasures. I am helping to find them good homes!
What has impressed me most is how meticulously she kept track of her tiny treasures as she added them. Each piece is noted with the date she bought it on the bottom (you'll see this in many of the pictures) and then recorded carefully in a loose-leafed notebook.
She bought many pieces new but a great many more of them she found at estate sales in the area...which means they pre-date even the date she gave them. This explains why some of the things I'll be listing I've found to be quite in the vintage category!
Where I have been able to find information on issue dates (especially on the houses) I'm including that; if you collect these pieces you may know far more than I do!
What I've found in putting these items together is that I have overlooked a very, very charming part of the joy of decorating for Christmas...I've been delighted...and chuckled... and oh'd and ah'd...as I've sorted through them!
I hope you find something here you've been looking for, or something you'll fall in love with, and the traditions this sweet lady enjoyed for so many years will continue to bring happiness!
This is a charming little piece, somewhat smaller than a lot of the other houses which would make this village more desireable in a limited space. It is engraved Cobblestone Corners on the bottom with a sticker that reads Windham Heights.
What I love most about this piece is the old-fashioned fire wagon parked in the doorway...that and the sweet details on every bit of the rest of the piece. It measures 4-1/2" tall and 4-1/2" wide. There was no light with this one but I think I have some extras, so I'll make sure it has one to travel with.
The piece needs to be cleaned up just a bit and I'm not quite sure how to clean the glittery snow...so I'll leave that for its new owner. I'd like to see the other pieces in this village...they must be equally delightful!
