September Updates

Barnes and Noble set up their Wizard of Oz and Wicked tables on September 15th. Some products such as the dolls and the Wicked wall decals, are behind schedule so keep checking back with your local store or you can order online. I had planned to post photos but have decided to wait for more inventory to show up.

WalMart is now carrying two fleece fabric designs for $7.84 and two fleece panels of the Wicked Witch and Glinda for around $11.00. has two cute Oz shirts in Juniors sizes for $9.99 each.

Jeweled Treasures of Oz Box Collection from the Bradford Exchange

The Wizard of Oz Animated Figurine Collection from the Bradford Exchange.
No details at this time but orders are being accepted. The Wicked Witch looks awesome!! And, never thought I'd say this, the flying monkey is ADORABLE. Click on photos to enlarge.

Keep your eye on Teleflora's blog. Right now there is a Wizard of Oz Quiz and an interview with John Fricke and essay by film critic Michael Wilmington will be posted soon.

The Wizard of Oz Festival in Chesterton IN is this weekend and it's a GREAT place for collectors. Lots of wonderful vendors and craftsmen. Donors for the Saturday auction include The Tonner Doll Company, Tarina Tarantino, Wilde Imagination, USAopoly, Lenox, The Franklin Mint, Mattel, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Hallmark, San Francisco Music Box, and very special items donated by Munchkins Meinhardt Raabe, Jerry Maren, Margaret Pellegrini, Karl Slover, and Myrna Swenson widow of Clarence Swenson. The Wizard of Oz Fest in Chesterton is paradise for an Oz lover.

Please keep watching the Curiozity Corner as the 70th anniversary celebration continues!!!!!
