Came across this German auction site, called, and feel moved by other people's memories, their possessions, their histories.  Here are a handful of the items. I loved the German toys, especially the miniature stores for children. But here is an odd one, World War II Nazi and Hitler cigarette cards. Nazi cigarette cards?! Had to Google and sure enough, they also sell them on eBay.

Love this box, the burled veneer, the pretty key

And here are the toy miniature stores. Amazing details.

The Invisible Mother was a phrase used for a mother disguising herself with fabric, so that her child or children could be photographed. the results were unintentionally funny and sad at the same time. ‘This was a practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding, often under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused image.’
