This is hardly a Christmas house but the Bumpalow buildings came in a complete Bumpalow town set. It may have been UNDER the Christmas tree as a present at one time and having a penchant for toy filling stations this cutie was MINE. Really a charmer and it came with the remains of the box. The two "gas" pumps had both been broken but I glued them together with Aileen's Tacky glue and it seems to work. This card board is about 3/16" thick and is painted in what appears to be enamels. I don't know whether they originally came with red cellophane in the windows or whether it was an "owner addition". Cool design.

Cool piece, Tom. It probably wound up on some train tables, too. . . .
