Butler recounts the story of a Charlotte couple, James T. and Anne Duckworth, who started the fad of blowing rainbow bubbles, which has developed into a $2.5 million business in just eighteen months. It began humbly in a Charlotte garage with an old garden rake used to stir the bubble solution in a 55-gallon barrel. Life magazine called it the nation's \"first genuine post war fad and the perfect form of relaxation from war--quiet, inconsequential and fascinating.\" After that the business took off.
