Thank you higashi glaser!


Our third auction ended on Sunday and the Labbit by higashi glaser closed at $760.00! The winner was actually a last minute bidder. Most of the bidding was between two people and was hot and heavy. It was a huge surprise ending, the kind that can only happen on eBay!

All of the proceeds from the auction have been donated to the Museum, so thank you to the artists and the new owner of this beautiful piece.

I am going to miss “Stumped” and all of the Labbits as they go to their new homes this week.

Stay tuned for Stan Sakai’s auction coming up on October 1. It should be a cliff-hanger!

2011-2012 Museum Store Catalog is coming your way!

I just uploaded the new catalog items to our web store. The catalogs went to the post office yesterday and should be arriving at your homes soon.

Just an FYI, there are a few items whose arrival will be later in the season. Look for our big launch of the “Farewell to Manzanar” DVD in October. There is a long story about how this film is finally being made available for sale after 35 years. You will be hearing more about this historic event soon.

Some of our items are coming from far-off lands like France and Japan. And one new item is a special Museum product (you will see it on the cover!) which is making its way on a boat from China. But click on the new catalog cover on the janmstore.com homepage and start making your wish lists for the holidays!

We hope you enjoy the selections we’ve sourced for you this year. And remember to shop, share and support us through the store!
