Whaddayaknow? column: Bookstore will return

Filed under: "coliseum mall" — Anita @ 10:55 pm

I was taking a break from searching on for Christopher Smart stuff:

Daily Press, Newport News, Va., Whaddayaknow? column: Bookstore will return; Daily Press, Newport News, Va.

Q: Will the recently built [[2003]] Barnes & Noble bookstore at the Coliseum Mall be demolished? If so, will it be rebuilt in the new Peninsula Town Center?

A: To answer, yes and yes. Coliseum Mall manager Raymond Tripp says the current Barnes & Noble store will remain open until early 2007, though the exact date has not been decided. It will be torn down, and a new Barnes & Noble will be built. Tripp says, “With the new layout [of Peninsula Town Center], we moved them in front of where the existing mall is now.”

The 1983 JC Penney And Sears Christmas Cataloge Project

Filed under: 1983 JC Penney & Sears Catalogs,Christmas — Anita @ 4:32 am

(This was originally posted in my blog during the summer and fall of 2005)

In 1983 (the year I was born) my mom saved the 1983 Sears and JC Penney Christmas catalogs. We thought we lost them when we moved to Wakefield in 2000, but when we were moving to Franklin last summer we found them again. They were severely water damaged though, hence these images being taken with my digital camera instead of scanned (and, my dad’s PC [my eMac is too new to use the scanner with] was dead at the moment).

Here they are, all together in their own category

And here are some recent ones:
