Stuff, that's what garages and basements are for, right?
There is no shortage of stuff out there in America. Some of that stuff is probably junk but not all of it. Some of it may be wild, weird or wonderful.
That's where the Museum of San Ramon Valley comes in. Its current exhibit is about stuff -- the Wild, Weird and Wonderful. In conjunction with this exhibit, Marjorie Schwarzer, museum historian and author of the prize winning book Riches, Rivals and Radicals, will discuss some common collections found in many American homes, basements and garages.
And, as a twist, she is focus in on some of the weirdest things found in some of the weirdest places. Sounds promising!
From the museum about the event:
Come and learn about the nutty lady who could not stop collecting nutshells. Hear about the man who has built an empire on hammerheads. Listen to facts about the famous museum that began when a person could not stop shopping. What is the most popular collectible in America? Do you happen to own a few collections?
Marjorie Schwarzer talks on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 2 p.m. at the Danville Town Hall, 201 Front Street. Admission is Free.
