In my last blog post, I announced the new 2020 Mayberry Day-by-Day Flip Book Calendar.
The calendar was shipped today to everyone who pre-ordered the publication. I will add it to our website shop at some point next week before I leave for Mayberry Days. If you order one through our mayberrybooks.com website, I am always happy to sign and personalize the calendar to a specific name, if desired.
The calendar will also be available through other sources, of course. Beginning late Thursday afternoon, you can find it in Mount Airy at Wally’s Service, Mayberry on Main, Mayberry Hotel & Gift Shoppe, Mayberry Market & Souvenirs, and the Mill Creek General Store.
If you are traveling through Mayberry, Virginia or along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, the calendar will also be available beginning Friday morning at the historic Mayberry Trading Post, the general store pictured in Mayberry Firsts.
By the way, all of these fine businesses listed in the last two paragraphs also have (or will have by the weekend) our book, Mayberry Firsts. The book will also available as of Thursday at the Mayberry Motor Inn in Mount Airy and as of Friday at Meadows Mercantile in Meadows of Dan, Virginia.
I will be delivering a large supply of the calendars to Weaver’s Department Store while at Mayberry Days, so I am sure they will have them available promptly after their return from the festival. I will also add them to Amazon the week after I return from Mayberry Days.
I want to remind everyone attending Mayberry Days that I will be signing the new calendar and Mayberry Firsts at Wally’s on Saturday after the parade but before Prof. Brower’s lecture from 11:30 to 1:30.
And finally, I will also have the calendar for sale along with Mayberry Firsts at most appearances I make providing presentations on The Andy Griffith Show.
Just like last year, the calendar includes an easel that bends into a triangle shape so the item can be used as a desk calendar. At the end of the year, the easel can be removed (or folded flat again if you want to keep the item in its original form) and can be used as a reference book.
A sincere thank you is offered to all the Mayberry fans who have been so supportive of our mission to help keep the Mayberry spirit alive and spread it to as many fans as possible.
Long live Mayberry!
