Wonderful Vintage Howdy Doody Wonder Bread Paper Marionette
is a wonderful vintage Howdy Doody Paper Marionette with its original strings still attached and in working condition that we found in an estate that we recently purchased. This piece is in good condition, it has some minor fold marks and it looks dirty from age. I have not tried to clean it because of its being paper and I did not want to damage it. I will leave that up to the new owner. I am no expert and I do not know how to properly clean vintage paper items. This piece stands 13 inches tall and is jointed. It is marked "Kagran Printed In USA". This wonderful vintage advertising piece will come to you from our non smoking home. I will be listing many more vintage and antique items from this estate so be sure to Check out my other items !
Six months ago, my husband and I purchased a neighbors home after she passed away. Our neighbor had lived in this home with her husband for 50 years and in that 50 years she had never thrown anything away. She was very sentimental and kept absolutely everything. Her husband passed away the year before she did. Her two boys had no children and lived out of state and were not interested in anything from the house and so they sold us the house as it sat, full of all her and her familys treasures. We had been remodeling our century old home for the last year and a half and were just about finished when we purchased the home. This home was full from the basement, first and second floors to the floored attic. T was literally just a path through every room. We packed everything away and put the house up for sale after fixing it up. Now that we are finished with that, I will be listing the treasures we found t along with all of our treasures. The experience of seeing my neighbors house so full because she collected and treasured everything for all her life made me realize that my house could someday look the same if I just keep collecting as I have and if I dont let anything go. It was so sad that no one in her family wanted her things. It made me wonder what our family would do with all of what we treasure. So, my husband and I are slowly and reluctantly parting with our favorite treasures and our newly aquired ones. We already had our basement and a storage building full when we aquired the new house and now we have a second building full from that. Over the next few months, I will be listing daily so be sure to check back often. I will be listing wonderful vintage and antique items from my collection,beautiful silver and vintage toys and almost anything you can immagine. I am sure you will find something you love also.
