Found, Free, and Flea: Creating Collections from Vintage Treasures

Grandma’s rusty teakettle, old fishing lures, a broken antique camera from the attic—these are your foundation pieces for building authentic collections on the cheap.When Tereasa Surratt’s husband convinced her that they should buy a derelict summer camp in Wisconsin, they had no idea the treasure trove they’d inherit with the property. While renovating the decrepit cabins at Camp Wandawega, they kept stumbling upon curious objects, some dating back ninety years or more: a Boy Scout patch, an old sled, a pristine set of Fiesta Ware, dozens of midcentury aprons, an untouched box of board games in their original packaging. Tereasa knew the power that one mundane object has when grouped with its siblings. So rather than discard everything, she set out on a five-year expedition to turn the more than 150 found items into full-fledged collections. Relying on her own thriftiness, she only acquired pieces for free or at a bargain price: items that she found, negotiated for

The Bagley Collector’s Guide (For the Bagley Fanatic)

The Bagley Collector

ABOUT THE BOOK The Jim Bagley Bait Company was one of the pioneers in the American fishing tackle industry. When Jim Bagley founded the tackle company that would bear his name in 1954, he could not have known that almost six decades later collectors and fishermen alike would acclaim Bagley fishing lures as among the finest ever made. Yet from the standpoint of quality construction, paint finish, and downright fish catching ability, Bagley lures have few peers. In this book, noted Bagley collector and scholar Johnny Garland brings us the definitive study of these American classics. The book includes a detailed history of the firm from 1954 up until 1998, a detailed look at boxes and box styles, a study of each of the numerous models of Bagley lures from the Kill'r B to the Small Fry and everything in between, and a massive section containing every known Bagley color to date (over 500!). Other sections include a reproduction of important Bagley catalogs and a peek inside Jim Bagley's per

Egg Money Quilts: 1930’s Vintage Samplers

Egg Money Quilts:  1930

Before the 1940's, most eggs were produced on rural farms with small flocks that scratched their way around the barnyard. The farmer's wife was usually responsible for caring for her chickens and the money received from the sale of the eggs was hers. Surely, some fabric was purchased with this precious fund and from that came the quilt patterns uniquely associated with the Depression years of the 1930's. During a time of hardship in America, there were still many things for which to be thankful. Life was simple, people neighborly, and quilts not only useful but also an extraordinary expression of imagination. Journey back to the times when milk was 14 cents a quart and bread 9 cents a loaf.With over a year in planning, testing and writing, Quilt in a Day is delighted to announce Egg Money Quilts-A 1930's Vintage Sampler. Egg Money Quilts is not only a collection of twelve vintage quilt block patterns with two layouts, but also a treasury of extra projects created from the blocks. Join
