The Christmas season isn't over until Paula and Blaine Hill hold their open house in mid-January. It's a magical setting: A mid-19th century one-room schoolhouse in Harriman, N.Y. High ceilings, wood plank floors, and everywhere on display the vintage and antique items they have collected over the decades. Dolls, teddy bears, jumping jacks, books and tons of Christmas items: nutcrackers, Santas, nativity scenes, ornaments, etc. These pictures capture only a small segment of the house and its contents. The Hills have a shop in the basement, filled with vintage scrap, postcards, paper dolls and children's books. I'll post my purchases in the coming weeks.
