Lady Rapunzel and Savior

I was by here, and not only are the characters gone, the "Rapunzel" lettering is too.

Since it was well into June and 98 degrees that day, I don't think they're keeping them "put away for warmer weather." I'd have to say this is now a defunct item. On a good note, the Uniroyal Gal (about a block away) is looking great!

Perhaps they're stored for the winter and brought out to dangle in warmer weather...
