Hello Cardboard Christmas Folks. It's hard to imagine that unseen Putz Houses keep showing up but there's something new for me. Original MIMIC CANDY CONTAINERS PUTZ HOUSES from the 1930's. I hardly ever go over to Esty but things are slow so I stopped by for a visit. I found six interesting houses. I kept going back to look at the sales but I wasn't sure what I was looking at? There was just something not right about these houses. Then I dawned on me, there is no light hole in the back... these are Candy Container houses in shapes I was very familiar with! By the time I figured it out 3 of them were sold. I hurried and was able to capture three of them. Happy and sad at the same time. It was horrible that the set was broken up. I even asked the seller to put me in touch with the other buyer but I never heard back. How sad. Luckily the original seller took wonderful pictures so I can still add these to Candy Container Chapter. Have any of you seen any of these before? I photo shopped one of the pictures so you can see their twin. The onlt flaw to these pieces is that an old Rail Roader cut a hole on the bottom of the base and cut down the height of the candy box!

Wow, Pete! What a find! Like you I am very familiar with these as putz houses with the light hole, but not as candy containers. I am jealous!!

Enjoy them!
