This is one of the easy connections, but not everyone has seen this.
Here are two issues of The Bedford Falls Sentinel, which were published in the mid-1990s. The Bedford Falls Sentinel was a newsletter/sales pitch that was part of Target's It's a Wonderful Life village pieces. Once you registered a building, you began receiving these newsletters.
As an added bonus for registering your buildings, this newsletter included an order form for special order-only bonus pieces that were not available in stores. Three of the pieces I ordered special through the newsletters were a Christmas tree-shaped bell, a flag pole, and a Civil War soldier statue. I'll post photos of those at a later date.
