Wax Figures For Sale
"My grandmother lived down the street from the Plymouth Wax Museum," says Bob Watts (far right), "I went there as a kid." Watts, now 62, describes himself as "one of those homeless ex-marine trying to sell dummies on the side of the road guys." Watts was asked to help sell the wax figures by friend Peter Jacques of Hop River Concrete in Columbia. So from the parking lot at Hop River Concrete, Watts has been hoping that people passing by on Route 6 will buy all or part of the collection of historical figures that were made back in the 1960's for the Plymouth Wax Museum in Plymouth, Ma., "Back in the 70's and 80's, until 2005, millions of people saw these." says Watts.
