KENNEBUNK, MAINE – Calling all collectors! Do you like to collect snowmen, duck decoys, baskets, postcards, guitars, bottles, bikes…..? We want to hear from you! The Brick Store Museum is mounting an exhibit this fall that will showcase the best collections from the community. We are taking submissions now.
About a third of people in America collect something. Some collectors take the traditional path; comic books, baseball cards or Star Wars and then there are collectors that gravitate toward the unique. The reasons and manner vary, like the football fan who collects memorabilia to express loyalty; or the stamp collector in search of the rare find. A collection can bring back memories of places and people or build a bridge between the skill and aspirations of previous generations. Do you know someone who is an avid collector? Young or old, please have them contact us. Museums would not exist if it weren’t for the passion of the collectors in our communities.
For more information on the exhibition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (207)985-4802.
