Have you ever gone to a Swap Meet to find another piece to add to that collection of yours?  There is Swap meets for everything and anything you want!  This weekend in Lansing, Michigan is our EXTRAVAGANZA ’12, Michigan Antique Radio Club’s annual swap meet.  This years theme is Bakelite and Beyond.  (what a fabulous name!)  http://www.michiganantiqueradio.org/?q=content/extravaganza  Don’t miss it!  Beginning Thursday, July 12th, and continuing thru Friday, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th.

“Last year over 1000 attendees from nearly 30 states and a number of foreign countries, as close as Canada and as far as Australia, enjoyed the festivities. Our theme this year will be Bakelite and Beyond.”

This year the Telephone Collectors International will be holding their meeting at the Antique Radio Convention.  (you can find them on Facebook)  Click on the link below to read up on this wonderful world of collecting!  Here is a clip from their ABOUT page :

Telephone Collectors International was incorporated under the laws of the state of Kansas on May 13, 1986. The goal of the organization is “to educate the public, as well as the members of the Corporation, regarding the history of telephony, the value of old telephones and related items, their collectability and preservation; to research telephone history and publish and provide literature thereon; to promote the public exhibition of old telephones and related items; and to promote common courtesies and guidelines for use by the public.” http://www.telephonecollectors.org/about/about.htm

As previously posted by Forever Bound Art, the AMA vintage motorcycle swap meet is a NEVER miss for bike lovers.http://www.midohio.com/Schedule/AMA-Vintage-Motorcycle-Days  www.americanmotorcyclist.com/events/amavintagemotorcycledays  It has already passed for this year, but plan a trip sometime.  It’s a trip to motorcycle heaven.

 

Whatever you collect, there are more of you out there.   Don’t be afraid to proclaim your love for plastic, glass, radios, toys, whatever it may be.  There is a club for EVERYTHING!  Seriously…..

That’s why God gave us the ability to make stuff  🙂
