 Roller Pillow Gladys L11. Wanted to Buy! My father made roller pillows in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. I have moved three times since he gave me mine and unfortunately have managed to keep the roller, but the pillow base with the drawer in it has gone missing. I would dearly love to replace it. If anyone has a roller pillow which was purchased from Syd Rose, I would love to purchase it from you. Please contact the Gazette office: clgeditor @ gmail.com if you are interested in selling yours.                                                                              Gladys L, British Columbia, Canada
