    So what was Marigold doing in Woolworth’s?

    “And I did wonder why how I wound up with five pairs of jeans draped over me!’

    Marigold, only you could have that adventure. Also Marigold’s age is connected to the age of the existence of department stores with vests and mirrors and name we can try and figure out when she was young. Still can’t say how long unicorns remain young after being born but we can finally build a small bar on her time line.

    Also Shield of boringness must be strong to have people ignore a UNICORN in a department store for a week. Unless people just assumed she was a display piece.

    They thought she was just another clothes horse.

    Looking at bare walls. No more Woolworth’s. Not in Britain either. Only Germany and South Africa.

    The large pretzels suggests Macy’s in NYC. It must have been one of those angled mirrors that reflect every side and angle into infinity.

    Her view of camp is being at the mall for a week, staring at a mirror. I could go for the mall part.

    That explains where she got the Lone Ranger costume.

    The mothballs suggest Woolworth’s. We don’t know how old Marigold is.

    Loveliness camp, department store… sort of the same thing, if you turn your head and squint.
    Also, I demand pictures of filly Marigold.

    If it was in a department store, then “loveliness camp” would have had to have happened recently from Marigold’s perspective. The impression I have is that her age could be measured in centuries or possibly millenia.

    Keep in mind, time means nothing to an immortal – so Marigold’s memory of being a ‘filly’ can’t be trusted, either. For her, a century might be like a day for us – but she still as so many memories, they’re bound to be a little mixed up.
