Whenever I see vintage photos of the Emporium in Town Square, I can't help wondering what amazing treasures would have been found inside. Both of these photos are from 1956, so there were postcards that were 5 cents (that are now worth $100), maps, guidebooks, posters, coloring books, Eleanor Wellborn dishes, and all manner of wonderful tchotchkes to tempt guests! One might find something so rare and wondrous that even die-hard collectors don't know of its existence today.
Maybe there were even a few original animation cels, although I know those were supposed to mostly be available at the Art Corner. All I need is three teaspoons full of dark matter and my time machine will be complete!
