Pasttime Collectibles & Antiques: BULLY GOOD SKOOKUM

Pasttime Collectibles & Antiques: BULLY GOOD SKOOKUM | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

A few years ago I became the proud keeper of a collection of Skookum dolls which had been compiled by my late aunt.  She had traveled many times to Arizona for winter holidays and probably began to bring them home as a remembrance of fun warm times.  Skookums were designed and sold by Mary McAboy after her husband passed away and she was in need of income to support herself.  A patent was granted on Feb 17, 1920 and thus began a career which expanded from a do it yourself artist production until the business was sold in order to accommodate ever expanding demand for these unique tourist souvenirs.  The Skookum can represent several tribes based on the costumes and decorations worn

Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls)

Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls) | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In 1972, the Ms. Foundation for Women produced Free to Be… You and Me, an illustrated book and record album set. Initiated by Marlo Thomas, the mission of the Free to Be… You and Me project was to provide healthy messages refuting and rejecting gender stereotypes while encouraging the positive and empowering post-1960s ideas of gender equality, individuality, comfort with one’s identity, and tolerance. Using her celebrity clout, Marlo Thomas got a number of her celebrity friends to create, write, and perform the modern day lessons to children in song and story form. No doubt the hope was that the parents and other adults in children’s lives were listening — and learning — too.

Old Book from the 16th Century Can Be Read 6 Different Ways

Old Book from the 16th Century Can Be Read 6 Different Ways | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

What makes each book unique is that two different people can see the same book differently and take very different meanings from it. But this book here, printed back in the late 16th century, lets people actually read six different books individually in one contraption. This treasure on display at the National Library of Sweden discovered by Erik Kwakkel, uses a sixfold dos-à-dos binding technique with the help of six cleverly places clasps. It is quite the display of craftmanship that just doesn't exist too often in modern publishing today and sort of like an old school version of a tablet reader.

A Very Tiny Dollhouse with Very Big Treasures

A Very Tiny Dollhouse with Very Big Treasures | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I hate dolls. They just creep me out. But, as I’ve mentioned before on the _floss, I have a bizarre fascination with dollhouses.


I’m in good company, though. Included amongst the millions of people interested in miniatures was Colleen Moore, a silent film star whose career fizzled a bit when the talkies came out. But movies weren’t her only passion: a love of miniatures was passed down to her from her father, and in 1928, she enlisted the help of a set designer friend to make a remarkably detailed eight-foot miniature “fairy castle.”

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Absolutely stunning!

Vintage German Christmas Tree Candle Clips

Vintage German Christmas Tree Candle Clips | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Before electricity made its way into most homes, Christmas trees had the warm glow of candlelight. The candles were attached to the tree branches via little metal clips. Most often they were decorative clips made in Germany, like these shown here.  Since using candles to light your tree is neither practical, nor safe, we don’t recommend bringing back that tradition lightly. (No pun intended!) But that doesn’t mean you can’t safely use these charming bits of Christmas past this holiday.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Some ways to use these beautiful pieces.
