Nostalgia Bites: Sequined Calendars
One can't make notations on them, they don't fit in a briefcase or purse and they are tacky looking. So, my question is...Who is still buying these things? If you are even familiar with them, it is probably because you saw a similar item in your grandmother's or great-grandmother's kitchen. Somehow, I can't imagine baby boomers or generation Xers pursuing the pastime of gluing or sewing tiny sequins on pre-printed fabric.
If for some crazy reason this hobby does bring a nostalgic tear to your eye, you'll be happy to learn that the calendars are available for a nominal price at Mary Maxin. I guess the winters in Port Huron, Michigan can drive one to try many odd diversions. The selection includes rural scenes, birds and animals, florals, motorcycles and even a sequined-robed Jesus.
