    It’s kinda funny, I have not been to the show in a couple years and I thought overall prices on the low end stuff seemed to have come down a little. Always a neat show, with great people, and all kinds of Antiques. Still kicking myself for not buying what could have been the 1st Pinewood Derby car I ever built. (1972)

    Small world. My wife and I just returned from a vacation to the East coast. On the second leg of our trip we stayed in Annapolis, M.D. Our last day in the area was a freeroam, and I had seen there was a decoy museum in some place called Havre de Grace. Dang, I wish we had more time. 1.5 hours to see a 3 day weekend decoy show and the museum. In the museum was a section for the Ward brothers. Their work caught my eye as they liked to make decoys with unusual poses. They had a few amazing pieces there, and now I see one of their decoys selling for north of 150K. Neat to be able to connect the dots a little bit.

    Son was in a Lacrosse tournament out in Baltimore Maryland. I had the time to go to the Havre de Grace decoy museum. Very cool collections and displays, not to mention the articles. Highly recommend it, took a lot of pictures.

    I agree. We heard about that place too late. I would love to have traded a day in DC to go Salisbury.

    About 8 years ago we went to Duck N.C. For any client to remodel their Beach house, And the museum there was quite impressive, definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area.The Whales Head lodge/hunt club is also impressive.
