The FINAL letter of our wonderful countdown!
For my A to Z Challenge theme I will be posting items that are no longer with us or are close to becoming extinct.
These are great items to use if you are trying to set a time period in your story or to stay away from if you want your story to be timeless.
Zayre- Like so many of the stores I grew up with; Ames, Bradlees, Globe, Porteous, and yes Zayre, they are no longer with us. Zayre was very similar to a KMart. 1956 to 1990. Although my local Zayre's didn't last until 1990. I loved Zayre because with my piddly allowance I could afford stuff there. The first thing I ever bought with my own money was a lime green plastic skateboard. My prized possession of my six year old life. I lived on the top of a hill. I loved my skateboard.
Zenith While the company technically exists it was bought by LG Electronics in 1999 and you never see any Zenith branded items anymore. Zenith was founded in 1918. Zenith was the inventor of subscription television and the modern remote, they were also the first to develop HDTV in North America.
Thank you so much for joining me on this ride. I have found a lot of wonderful blogs that I can't wait to follow and see what they are like when not blogging from A to Z. Congratulations to everyone who finished! We did it!
