Has anyone been to a place in Canton, Blaine county, Oklahoma where there is a place that collects and sells old movie posters to collectors? I am wondering if they have a website online?
Canton Lake is the largest in western Oklahoma where the Walleye Rodeo is held every May on the weekend following Mother's Day. It attracts 150,000 to 200,000 visitors to Canton and Canton Lake every day.
There are/were two unique businesses in Canton: File Favorites and Movie Poster Services. This NW Okie has never heard or seen either of these two unique businesses. If someone out there knows of these two businesses or has photos of these businesses, drop us a message in an email or send us a "Google Voice-mail" and tell us about Movie Poster Service and File Favorites.
Is File Favorites and Movie Posters still in business in Canton, Oklahoma?
I did do a Google search online for "File Favorites" and "Movie Posters" and found this information concerning "Film Favorites" that use to be in Canton, Oklahoma.
It stated, "After purchasing Film Favorites in Canton, Oklahoma, he decided to move the business to Houston in 1993. He changed the name to Arnold Movie Poster Company and then a few years later to Movie Posters as the internet came along.
The business is now in Tomball, Texas, just outside of Houston. Gene's son, Mark, and Son-in-Law, Rob Gasper work with him. They have their hands full as they sell, across the U.S.A. and around the world, thousands of original movie posters and reprints of classic titles.
On another note! Did you ever hear about a 1920, U.S. Post Office Department rule that children may not be sent by parcel post? Was or Is this for real? Did they use to send children by parcel post? Who would send their children through parcel post?
If you know the answer to this question and U.S. Post Office Department rule, then please enlighten us all! Thanks!
