Take the turnpike going west and a few exits along you come to Adamstown. It’s a town that’s loaded with antiques and collectables. Most are huge co-ops that offer hundreds of vendors under one roof. But one place that we like in particular has only the trees overhead, that’s Shupp’s Grove.
It’s a weekend kinda place and most weekends are devoted to one theme or another. We happened to end up there on Vintage Kitchen weekend. Not everyone follows the theme, but if you love the 40’s and 50’s you’d be in heaven with all the Fiestaware and Bakelite handled utensels.
Of course, I go for the stuff that’s got no use anymore. They become objects of reverence and contemplation. Who made, who used it, when did they decide they didn’t need it anymore.
