We hope your 4th of July celebration was as much fun as ours!
We were very happy to participate in the City of Novato Annual 4th of July Parade.
Ken Becker lead the way in the truck pulling the float..
This is the favorite time of year for our custom train that normally greets the customers as they enter the parking lot of Dollhouses, Trains & More.
A parade is the perfect time to get off the rails and pull some kids around.
DTM has always been a family business. That also means that when you are born to have this kind of fun, you get to dress the part too. One of the granddaughters, Cali, was recruited to handle the candy distribution. A popular job with the parade watchers, but she looked great doing it.
Dollhouses, Trains & More has always been a passion project for owner Linda Becker. June's project was designing and building the float. And, she deserves the cheers she gets as Betsy Ross hand stitching the flag. Linda's daughter, Tiffany Tweedie takes on the role of Betsy 2016 (a casual interpretation while filling a squirt gun).
It was a wonderful outing, and a representation of yesterday, today and the future.
Have a fun and safe summer, may the force be with you.
