DICKENS FAMILY DESCENDENT WELCOMES NEW YORK AREA CHRISTMAS ENTHUSIASTS
 WITH A CHARITABLE PREVIEW OF CHRISTMAS 92' AT FORTUNOFF
 The wife of the Great Great Grandson of Charles Dickens will open the doors to Fortunoff's Christmas store, Old Country Road, Westbury, Long Island, on Friday, Oct. 16th at 4:00 p.m. as part of a Christmas season kickoff campaign to benefit the Charles Dickens Heritage Foundation which supports health and social agencies here in the United States and in England.
 Ms. Jeanne-Marie Dickens will unwrap part of 30,000 square feet of retail space devoted to a massive miniature porcelain Christmas village whose various pieces will shortly become collector items. Royalties from the Charles Dickens Signature Series will go toward supporting the Dickens Heritage Foundation.
 An explosion in Christmas collectibles has become a multibillion dollar business and the industry is working round the clock to prepare for the coming holiday deluge. Retail industry observers are finding this area of the industry to be Recession proof and Fortunoff expects thousands of people for this private showing alone.
 CONTACT: Stu Miller or Gary Lewi both of Howard J. Rubenstein Associates, Inc., 212 489-6900, both for Fortunoff.
