House in Bottle

I got this in an antique/coffeehouse in Waimea, Kauai, Hawaii last year. The entire bottle is 9-1/2" long (the section shown here is about 5" wide), 4" high, 3" wide; the neck, through which all of this had to fit, is about 1" wide. How they ever did this is beyond me. Build it in collapsed form, slide in and pull erect? There are two human figures, a couple of baskets, a palm tree, and some fencing. Wonder of wonders!

Sacramento's “library of things” lets you borrow nearly anything

"A new service from the Sacramento Public Library will let you borrow more than books – much more. The California-based library is now offering a variety of other items to lend out, such as musical instruments, sewing machines, electronics and games.

Located inside Sacramento Public Library’s Arcade location, the library also offers 3D printers and scanners for public use, and they even have a bike-repair station.

According to their website, to borrow an item you must be at least 18 years old, unless borrowing a video game. Customers can browse the online catalog and place holds on items that they want to take out. Once the item becomes available, the borrower first in line can pick the item up.…"
