The Pendleton Store in Frontierland

A couple of Fridays back I posted letterhead and label used at the Pendleton Exhibit and store. I found a couple of images of the signage from the front of the building. The first shows the windows showcasing the Miss Pendleton line of clothing in a rustic setting.

The second is an image of the exhibit sign, designed to look like and in the same colors the Pendleton label on their famous Native American blankets.

I like the touch in the first photograph of the clothing types lettered onto the windows. But how many mannequins were there really in the Old West?

I would like to buy a saddle at the Pendleton shop and then carry it around all day!

When I was 10 years old, in 1960, you were NO ONE at my school if you didn't have a Pendleton, so naturally I begged my parents for one. They were pricy. Anyway, it was decided I could have one for my birthday.

Now it was a LAW (passed by congress; signed by the President) that on my birthday EVERY year we went to Disneyland. So, since we would be there on the day anyway, we waited, and I got to pick out my Pendleton and buy it at the Frontierland Pendleton shop, which only made it more special.

Sure, all the other kids had Pendletons, but MINE was from Disneyland! It made it twice as special. I wore it for years, and hated when I outgrew it. (We'd deliberately bought it overlarge, so I wouldn't outgrow it too fast.) Now that the Frontierland Pendleton shop is long gone, I'll never buy another. It just wouldn't be the same. And it wouldn't have that near-Wally-Boag smell.

Thanks for the pictures that brought that ancient memory back.
