Readers of the Mercheum Blog know that I am very concerned with the preservation of the content I have created. I do not feel that hobbyDB is a perfect fit for all the Harveyana that the Harvey Mercheum embodies, especially the various bits of corporate ephemera that I have promised to share with you. I am, however, very pleased to learn about the efforts that hobbyDB is making, and I still need to investigate how I can contribute.
I mentioned recently that changes are coming to the Harvey Mercheum. One of them happened a little sooner than I expected. If you have not heard, Google is shutting down Google+ on April 2. I noticed today that the Google+ script to display the badge had stopped working, so I removed it from the “Follow the Mercheum” section of the sidebar. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes. More changes to come!
Quick post today of another example of the number 998 short Richie Rich Three Dimensional Stickers. Today’s set has the stickers featuring Jackie Jokers last seen almost a year ago here with the red hanger last seen here just over a year ago:
Easter is still several weeks away, but to get in the mood, here is the Richie Rich rabbit costume doll turned into a Jigidi puzzle, enjoy!
Well, that is a most unfortunate fortune for someone who does what I am doing to receive! As a reminder, the point of the Harvey Mercheum website is not to show off my personal collection, and certainly not to make people envious! I am more than happy to display other people’s collections, please use the Contact the Curator form to let me know what you have!
So here we are, starting March, and I have only posted two new exhibits this year. That has to be a record low. To help, I am posting two exhibits today, more examples of the number 998 short Richie Rich Three Dimensional Stickers. They both feature the orange hanger we saw last time, which was almost a year ago!Continue reading →
Today we have the three sticker boards turned into Jigidi puzzles, enjoy!
As usual, my timing is terrible. It was just back in September that I created a Public Status Page using Pingdom, and now I have had to take it down. As of February 6th, Pingdom discontinued all free services, including the ability to serve that page. The link has been removed from the footer, apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
