Sam the Snowman

I couldn't even tell it was a snowman. Just a big white blob.

Sam the Snowman

Went to see Sam. Sadly, he doesn't seem to be well maintained at the moment. Hope the owner of the store will fix him up.

Looks like Sam's been given some clean sheets! The Snowman is back up and greeting visitors to Richey's Antiques.

Sam The Snowman

Looks like Sam took a tumble. He rests outside an antique/junk store that used to be a Safeway back in the '60s.

Sam the Snowman

This is a big version of Sam the Snowman from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (TV special). It was out in front of an Antique store on the East side of town directly off of HWY 180. He seems to be missing an eye, and I'm sure he's up for sale; so no telling, how long he'll be there. I didn't have time to stop and get the story behind the piece, but I sure would love to know it.
