NEW IN THE SHOP!
Attention TV lovers! Grab this White Noise Shower Curtain for a retro feel while you shower!
As we know, before today’s digital televisions people used to have analog televisions. Every time the receiver would lose its signal it the screen would turn black-and-white and it was called “white noise” or “snow” and it looks like a snow storm on the screen. This unique White Noise Shower Curtain looks like a giant screen of white noise!
The White Noise Shower Curtain is a great throwback to older technology. Tech lovers are sure to get a kick out of this unique looking curtain! A great, fun way to protect your bathroom floor from water while you shower! This nearly 5 foot 11 inch 100% polyester curtain will reliably do its job much better than the old TVs we used to have.
We’ve found them for sale online for between $20 and $30 (plus postage); the Museum is selling for a modest $15 (+ additional taxes/postage/handling), or you can pick up at the Museum.
Limited supply and when they’re gone, they, too, will be a thing of the past.

April is: Abbott and Costello Ride Again month
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
At the Museum
In the late 1940s and 1950s, zany comedians Abbott and Costello were highly popular, appearing on radio shows, TV shows, in movies, and stage appearances. Their TV show aired from 1952-53. Critics thought their pun-filled slapstick humor much too corny to take seriously, but audiences loved them. During April we present four examples of their humor.
April 3-5: Installing a Television Set
April 10-12: Haunted House
April 17-19: Vacation trip
April 24-26: South of Dixie.
