Today’s Top 5

Glass Box

The display window has glass on three sides: front, sides, and top. Very nice and probably expensive, even then.

Pricey Plaid

Yikes. Taking inflation into account, that $10 girl's jacket would now set you back over $100. And that's the reduced price!

Scary Mannequins

Cue creepy violin screeching from shower scene in "Psycho."

The Twilight Zone

So this is what happened to Talking Tina in her later years.
