I have a soft spot for vintage pieces with a folk art sensibility - naive paintings, hand painted signs, kooky things made with bottlecaps and other crafts composed with care, thrift and a sense of mirth. Delighted to look upon the offerings at Odd Fellows Art and Antiques, found via Anonymous Works. Plus, with a name like Odd Fellows, I knew they were kindred spirits - fraternal items have long been fascinating to me, and I have a few items I have collected over the years. I once had the opportunity to help organize a sale for a woman I know that bought an old Odd Fellows lodge - it was quite an adventure going through all the items; they were, after all, odd fellows and that is what is so wonderful.
