mini coloring book and a plastic
storage case. My grandmother took
me to the Hudson's store in down-
town Detroit, and I loved carrying
my little pencil set. It made me
feel so important. It brings back
such wonderful memories," Deman
reminisces.
Deman has more items in her
collection than she can count, some

one-of-a-kind. Her more unique
items include a viewfinder with a
filmstrip and record, a telephone, a
toilet paper holder that plays the
song, "It's a small world," and toilet
paper from Japan. She also has
stuffed animals, towels, blankets,
pillows, aprons and porcelain items,
such as a tea set and plates.
Deman has traveled to Chicago
