The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

miniature room

Miniature-room creator July Conner has assembled 28 settings or vignettes that reflect events and memories of her life and family. The miniature Western shops recalled her favorite Western-themed movies and TV shows and included dolls and other items acquired on a family trip to the Grand Canyon. The antique shops reminded her of stories her grandparents used to tell her. She placed miniature car magazines, sports materials and Purdue U. memorabilia in the game room just for her college-aged sons and their alma mater. The Christmas room contained several miniatures of toys that she played with as a child and that her sons played with too. Conner’s miniature rooms, like those of many hobbyists, presented small parts of her life and served as a catalogue of many favorite memories.
