Material Culture Minute: Start 'Em Young

It turns out I was conditioned from birth to appreciate flea markets, yard sales, and antique malls. Here, I tried to get out of my stroller and go exploring at Pioneer Village in Bloomsburg, PA, with family (I returned many times thereafter as a kid). Nearly thirty years after this photo was taken in 1985, flea market vendors are still using those distinctive tables. And I study material culture for a living.
