The Good Stuff

There are probably things in your house that would fascinate your children but you haven't thought to offer or they haven't found the good stuff yet. Consider interesting things you have that might be of interest for being old, foreign, specially made or obtained under special circumstances:

dishes / pots /molds
silverware—even one old piece you know something about
egg beater
flour sifter
can openers (“church keys”)
old bottles or other containers
old clothes from the 60's or 70's
recordings—reel to reel, 45's, 78's, 8-tracks
manual typewriter
push mower
pre-transistor radio

More of that list, and the parent article are at

  1. Your museum page is my favourite! Thanks for sharing it today! :)

  2. It's one of my favorites ever, too. It's the first one I used photoshop for (to make that title art, and the background) and the first one I used scanner art for (the record and drawer-stuff, with a white rabbit fur over it to keep it from having deep shadows with it was scanned).

  3. Old or broken down cars are hours of fun!
