Hello fellow enthusiasts, A find of a lifetime. A good friend of mine came across this MAGICAL CANDY CONTAINER CASTLE while traveling across Ohio when he stopped at a antique shop. Unfortunately him and his lovely wife also collect Putz Houses so this treasure will be staying with them and not in my display case! He was kind enough to loan this piece to me for cataloging it for the collector's guide. Enjoy...

Second…thanks to Pete for taking the time to clearly photograph, document and post on the forum…
By the way…the March 2009 House of The Month appears to be a twin sister for the most part…

Barb…I’ve looked at PT’s site more times than I want to admit…and some structures, especially castles, stick with me…
