    I just found this site. I use to sell these vary same “Glow in the Dark” items from Madison Mills, as a kid,
    60 years ago. I actually made a fare amount of money doing it. What spurred my interest was I still have a little miniature “Glow in the Dark” Dutch boy figurine standing on my dresser. I just notice it and thought ,Are they still in business ? YES! I did sell a lot of “glow in dark” Crucifix’s and a few of those Jesus pictures. Which glowed in different
    Colors. Not just the luminous green color! Just a little stroll down memory lane for me !

    Per comment 5 from Richard — I actually have one of those charms pictured in the ad and am researching the history of glow-in-the-dark things. I would love to chat with you about your experiences as a kid selling this stuff, if you would be so kind. Would be great to find out more about Madison Mills & etc. Please if possible leave another comment here & we’ll figure out how to get in touch. (& Thank You, Modern Mechanix for posting this!)
