Collecting artifacts and the history of people, places or things are my favorite hobbies. Ancestry and collections of photos, memorabilia and stories go hand in hand. Enjoy!

pretty perky pottery!
What's not to like about such an assortment of color and form? Mid century modern has had a resurgence (another re- word!) in the past several years. Some shops in the twin cities carry only this look, in addition to individual dealers who have discovered a market for objects someone's grandmother, mother, aunt etc etc may have decorated their homes with. Todays grandmas didn't necessarily grow up in a log cabin with no electricity, running water or (gasp) a TV or phone------present day grannys are a lot hipper! Anyway, McCoy, Van Briggle, Haeger, West German, Italian, Red Wing pieces can still be found for reasonable prices and aren't they fun? PS: from a private collection.
