Extravaganza, Kutztown, PA

Three times a year dealers, vendors and collectors descend upon this countrified haven to forage, haggle, indulge their obsessions and quench their thirst for the "thrill of the hunt." Finally, after several wet and soggy seasons, this glorious weekend yielded the promise of sunshine and the aroma of fresh funnel cake.

In addition to the usual estate castoffs, country primitives and handcrafts, there were notable emerging trends in an increase of Mid-Century as well as several booths of tribal art. Color was more pronounced, leaning towards mid-tone brights and eclectic blues.

People-watching has always been interesting at these events, and you just never know what delightful surprises will show up.
