eBay Remembers Gene Wilder….

 

image

 

I’ve never seen the remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp and I never will. Never.

 

Mark my words.  Nothing against Depp, but I just can’t bear to see Gene Wilder’s character turned into some crazy Clockwork Orange version of himself.

 

I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  I used to dream of having a bedroom covered in edible wallpaper.  The closest I ever got to unlimited access to sugar was when I spent all my blackberry picking money on bags of oversized gobstoppers and boxes of Nerds at The Yum Yum Shop in downtown Lakeport when I was in elementary school.

 

So I was super sad to hear that Gene Wilder had died.  My first instinct was (of course) to go to eBay and check out the completed listings for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory memorabilia.  I haven’t seen the movie in years although I’ve seen bits and pieces of it at Powell’s Sweet Shoppe in downtown Chico.

 

Take a look at the completed listings for the term Willy Wonka.  At the top of the list is one of the original Oompa Loompa costumes from the film.  $40,000?  Wow!   I wonder who bought it?  The uber-tan Oompa Loompas scared the living daylights out of me as a kid.  Those crazy eyebrows. That creepy chant.  I’m glad the costume found a good home because there is no way I’d be buying it.

Denim Skirts Are Back!

 

A friend of mine sent me this picture yesterday.  She took it inside the dressing room of one of the discount retailers in her neighborhood.  The skirt she’s wearing was on clearance and only cost her a buck.

What Are YOU Watching?

Only a few more weeks until the season premiere of Shark Tank!  Can’t wait!  I like to listen to podcasts and watch online shows while I work.  Unfortunately, I’ve watched every single episode of Shark Tank, so I’m always on the lookout for something new.

 

I was on Twitter the other day, and I discovered a show called Real Biz.  The show is hosted by journalist Rebecca Jarvis. Jarvis has interviewed quite a few business leaders.  I really like it.  You should check it out!  And if you’re interested in seeing my list of podcasts, television shows, and blogs for entrepreneurs, click here!
