Coach Outlet Wizard of Oz Collection

 I apologize for not getting this news up in a more timely manner but this was such a total, HUGE surprise and happened so fast!  But fear not.  There's multiple ways to still get what you want.  

Coach, who makes designer purses and accessories just debuted a fabulous Wizard of Oz line!!!!!  Their pieces are unmistakably Coach with Wizard of Oz flair.  

Oz fans are enthusiastically flocking to Coach Outlet stores nationwide. It's marvelous to see pictures of their new treasures on Facebook.  

Go to and sign up to view the collection.  If what you want is marked sold out, print up a wishlist and go to your local outlet where they should be able to order for you.  It's also been reported you can call stores all around the country and they will ship to you.  Certainly can't hurt to try.  

I haven't seen any pieces in person myself but the response so far has been overwhelmingly positive from both Oz and Coach collectors.  

It's been fun to see the Oz community come together to share a singular joy like this.  

Merry Christm'Oz!!!  

I'd like to thank Coach for releasing their Wizard of Oz line through the outlet channels so the collection is more accessible to the average Oz fan.  

Bioworld Wizard of Oz Socks

How cute are these!!!!  As a longtime admirer of Bioworld's merchandise,  I'm very excited to see more Wizard of Oz from them.  These socks are just darling and wonderful representations of the characters.  They've been very popular with Oz fans.  Available at Barnes and and other online retailers.  Google Wizard of Oz socks.   These would be great stocking stuffers for Christmas!

If you haven't seen them yet you can scroll through the blog or go to to see the Dorothy/Wicked Witch pair.  More is expected from Bioworld so stay tuned!!

Mego Cowardly LIon

Mego's next release is indeed the Cowardly Lion as rumored.   He's been hit and miss and released very sporadically at Target stores and online for weeks but now he's showing up steadily.   I don't have mine yet but those that do are giving him rave reviews.  It's so wonderful to see Mego back.  Can't wait to see what the next Oz character will be.  Dorothy and the Wicked Witch are still readily available. 

Ruby Slippers Of Oz: Thirty Years Later

A follow up to the fantastic Ruby Slippers of Oz book originally published in 1989 has been highly anticipated for years and here it finally is!!!  And at such an absolutely perfect time!  The Ruby Slippers are back on display at the Smithsonian after conservation efforts, the Ruby Slippers stolen 13 years ago have been recovered, and the 80th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz is almost upon us.  

The original book was such a fascinating intrigue and the new one will surely be no less.  All the adventures the ruby slippers have had the past 80 years!!!!  This book is a most for film buffs, movie memorabilia collectors and Oz fans who still believe the ruby slippers have the power to bring you home.  

Big thanks to Philip Bambarger for keep Oz fans abreast of the latest ruby slipper happenings. Be sure to check out the story of Glinda's wand too. Nothing short of amazing.  It is also on display with the ruby slippers right now.
