Souvenir Friday- Pendleton Woolen Mills Frontierland Exhibit Letterhead and Clothing Tag

Continuing on a Frontierland excursion, the souvenir for today is a nice fully illustrated letterhead from the Pendleton Woolen Mills store that once was the mainstay in Frontierland. The engraving on the letterhead shows a vignette of the store with a list at the bottom of the various types of clothing and blankets made by the company. I have also included an unused clothing tag. The clothing tag was attached to the shirts, jackets and other items sold through the store. According to information I have read, the store would sell the item and ask for the purchasers hometown so the hometown Pendleton outlet could be paid a portion of the sale price. Both pieces were found at the bottom of a drawer when the Pendleton store was closing in 1990. Many of you may own these pieces as they were included with an issue of the E-Ticket magazine in 1990 as a bonus.

As a special for the readers of the blog, I have extra pieces of the letterhead. The cost for a sheet will be $5.00 (including postage.) E-mail me at Matterhorn1959 at and let me know if you are interested.

I never imagined that individual stores at Disneyland would have their own letterhead. It makes me wonder what other examples might exits. The "Intimate Apparel" shop? "Cole's of California"?

Super neat, and that unused tag makes the two items a great set.
