Buffalo Trading Company lives on… in Hollywood

Saturday, 8th August 2009 at 16:39

ImageWhen Buffalo Trading Company closed at the end of January, most of us probably thought that would be the last we'd see of its fun Western props and displays. Not so -- one, at least, has followed a route all the way to Hollywood...,

Yes, the Hollywood Pictures store just across the street! As arno-hh on magicforum just spotted this week, if you walk through to the back of this movie-themed shop, you’ll stumble upon a very familiar display unit…


Now suitably forming part of the Pixar ‘Cars’ merchandise display, the trunk end of the red motor car — a Cadillac Eldorado, perhaps? — has been given over to plush toys from the popular film.

It used to be one of the most memorable features inside the old store, with the front end actually sitting above it, hanging off the wall…

So, even though the trendy new Starbucks Coffee might have been initiated into the resort’s photo library and nomenclature, the past hasn’t been completely forgotten.

What happened to the “hood” of the car? Well, perhaps it just became a very substantial conversation-starter in an Imagineer’s home? Keep your eyes peeled for more old props, anyway…

Pictures: arno-hh, Photos Magiques (more).
