The Wormhole

The Wormhole occupies a glass case on the southeast side of the main floor of HRPO.

This Wormhole is divided into three areas into which different items “blink into existence” periodically. The central division always showcases a not-for-sale item which remains on display for about five weeks.

The two bookend areas, however, contain for-sale items or packages! Each of those items is a special, sometimes one-time-only presence which is on-sale to the first lucky patron who can shell out the cash. The longer an item stays in the Wormhole, the cheaper it becomes. Should you wait until the price drops? Or will someone else buy it first?

All monies gained from the Wormhole go straight into HRPO’s BREC Foundation account! The account monies are used to purchase equipment and supplies for our many public offerings.
