Antiques in the Church Yard
One of my favorite things to do is browse vintage and antique shops. I like to add to my collection of interesting platters, silver and other various kitchen and dining items that I found over the years. I am thrilled when I come across a real find and if it has a low price sticker I am even more thrilled. Imagine my surprise when I ran into an ad for the “Twentieth Annual Antiques In The Church Yard” at the Stevens Memorial United Methodist Church in South Salem, New York. Honestly, I didn’t really have any July 4th plans so how great it was that I now had something fun to do. The drive to South Salem was beautiful and finding the place wasn’t too difficult. I parked the car, paid my $7 admission and started combing through the 120 booths. Like most “antique” fairs, there was a lot of junk, but there was plenty of good stuff too. I came away with a nice set of Vintage Sandwich Glasses (Depression Era Glass) and a Vintage Amish Lunchbox. It couldn’t have been a better day. Nothing fancy or over the top. For me it’s about the simple things.
