Glory Hounds

Us? Glory Hounds? Not really - it's safe to say that you will never get rich or famous with an obscure interest like this. But we will admit it's nice when someone notices your humble web efforts and mentions it to others.

So, with that in mind, we proudly present Memories of Glory! (ok, that was cornball over the top - but hey - we WERE noticed!)


Labelscar 1st Anniversary!

Labelscar First Anniversary

On May 15, 2007 Labelscar.com announced their 1st birthday and have received well wishers from everyone in the retail history world, including Steven Swain - our well known and generous co-editor of this site. Here is what he had to say:

What you’ve have done here is spectacular. From relative obscurity, you guys have risen to the top of the game with solid narratives, great pictures and an interactive format that encourages participation. Whatever sucess you achieve with this venture is well-deserved.

I consider you guys the best of the “Third Wave” of mall fansites.

Deadmalls.com was the “First Wave,” and inspired so much activity that its contributions cannot be ignored. Deadmalls legitimized this type of research, and I think we’ve all contributed something to them at least once :)

The “Second Wave” was Keith’s work at Malls of America and Scott’s at BIGMallRat. These sites turned this study into an interactive experience that we take for granted these days. I consider LiveMalls part of the “Second Wave” as well.

The “Third Wave” turned the game on its ear, with more color, content and insight than would have been possible before. Sites like this one paved the way for mall wikis like MallMemories.com and vastly improved expreinces everywhere.

Happy Anniversary!


Tuesday, March 27, 2007 Mall Memories: Carolina Circle Mall

I came across a website a few minutes ago that features a few little things about Carolina Circle Mall.

Basically, it's a website dealing with malls that have been demolished and it includes Carolina Circle Mall.

Most of it are pictures taken from Carolina Circle City and videos from YouTube. And that's about it. If I could figure out html, I could add a few things to it.

I admire the dedication of that site and invite you to take a look at it here.
