Sometimes, attention is unexpected… and really nice.
The beautiful Charles Albert jewelry that The Morikami Museum Store always carries is featured in the October issue of Boca Raton Magazine in some lovely spreads, which has led to unexpected attention and requests. If you love gorgeous sterling silver and mother of pearl combinations, then check out the goods before they’re gone. (Don’t worry, Store Manager Sallie Chisholm can always order more.)
Also in time for the holidays are Piperoids. Take the cartoonish neon looks of anime, throw in the robot-ish adventure of Transformers® and add the folding fun of origami, and you’ve got the newest toys to grace the shelves of the Morikami Museum Store.
Sallie has added Piperoids – combination of “pipes” and “androids” – to the Morikami Museum’s wide selection of young-at-heart retail items for the 2009 holiday shopping season. The paper robot craft kits require just a pair of scissors for any one to make Japanese-style characters that battle each other. With names like Guyzer & Bean, Muscle Joe and Penk & Goriborg, the Piperoids are sold in a one-piece package for $12 and two-piece packages for $15.
Check them out online at www.morikami.org. They are really cool, if you’re into brightly-colored, fold-em-up and play-with-them-for-hours type of stuff.
