Sorry for not posting last weekend, I spent what free time I had struggling to load the Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update on my old laptop. I did have plenty of time to think while the percent complete slowly crept upward, and I came up with a solution to a problem that has bothered me since before the Harvey Mercheum website went live in 2014.
Halloween is just around the corner! In my childhood, the Halloween season started with a trip to the store to buy a costume. I remember shelves stacked with boxes, so many choices! Find a character I liked, then find my size. Then one year, I took a good hard look at the costumes, and realized that the character would not be walking around with their face and name printed on their chest. I never wore a boxed costume again.
I am still trying to catch up after my vacation. Shortly after I returned, Mr. Karswell posted on his “and everything else too” blog about two sets of Three Stooges Three Dimensional Stickers. These reminded me of stickers in the permanent collection. I am fairly certain they are from the same unnamed Taiwanese manufacturer.
Sorry for the lack of new exhibits. I went away on vacation for a week, and while I am back now, I am having trouble catching up. I hope to post a new exhibit this weekend.
