Something Witchy This Way Comes
When we took a trip to the East Coast a few summers ago, Boston was one of our resting places. Of course, we had to check out Salem. I'd been there once before with my uncle, but Truman had never experienced the place, and I wanted to experience it with fresh eyes. Whilst there, we came across this interesting piece of ephemera-- a tourist souvenir booklet for Salem from the turn-of-century. We couldn't resist the cool witch graphics, and we were very pleased to commemorate our trip to Salem with an unique, antiquarian piece instead of a souvenir shop item that thousands of others keep in a box in their garage or attic.
