From the recent files of Nancy Drew:
Do you remember a time when vendors sold chameleons as fashion accesssories?
It’s a small-ish element of a single chapter in my memoir…one of those flashbacks that make you go, B’zuh? Did that really happen?
Proof! I needed proof! So I posed this question, casting my net far and wide:
Q: I’m wondering if you ever talked with someone who sold chameleon brooches? I remember hearing about them from my older brothers, and could have sworn they said women bought them from traveling circuses.
Obstacles I encountered: It’s a niche question, tinged with ickiness. I unearthed a handful of
wild claims curious assertions, but I wanted actual evidence! I worried this bone for a long while. And bulldog supersleuth that I am, I finally located a trustworthy source.
Mystery solved, no roadster required!
Thank you, John Robinson (SideshowWorld site owner), for responding to me directly. I appreciate also that you’ve created a new feature, "Ask the Staff," for other sleuths like me.
