New toy! As part of our store remodel, we purchased a "penny press." What's a penny press? It's a machine where we charge visitors a 4,900% markup for a souvenir penny, of course! For only 51-cents (two quarters and a penny) visitors can select one of four designs, a prairie dog, buffalo, steam locomotive, or trading post, and have the image transferred to an elongated (apparently that's the technical term) penny. And for all you busybodies out there, yes, it is in fact legal to elongate a penny. Everyone should buy all four designs! Now let's see, 4,900% four times is 19,600%.... (ka-ching)
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going on at the museum.
