Lynn:

Try here.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/LulusCupcakeB ... eader-name

My thought is these are not really vintage, just look like it.
I figure these Etsy and ebay sellers are buying in bulk and the repackaging them.

But for the price there's not much to argue. Plus you get a couple of figures not seen on the old houses.

Lynn, Steve, Howard etal.
I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed these postings--and all the photos--I am starting some of these today...I even called attention to the thread on my blog http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/20 ... ds_14.html

That being said:
if you are looking for vintage made in Germany miniatures--many of which would be perfect for this project--go to Meyer Imports. They also have tons of German glass glitter available and currently have a pretty good sale--don't know how long the link will last http://bit.ly/1RGn2Jj

I like seeing the whole box.
Funny seeing the price marked down to 39 cents.

The ones sold on ebay today go for a lot more than that.
