Do You Remember Putz -- The Dimestore Cardboard Houses?
The practice of creating miniature Christmas village landscapes using cardboard Putz houses became popular in the mid-20th century. As whimsical eye-candy on open dime store counters, they were an immediate sensation. Barclay continues the tradition of the cardboard village with these 3 delightful houses, trimmed with mica snow, bottlebrush trees and a tinsel wreath. Like the original pieces from the '20s and '30s, there's a hole cut in the back so you can install a small light. The windows include colored gels. Order early, as quantities are extremely limited.
