Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls)

Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls) | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In 1972, the Ms. Foundation for Women produced Free to Be… You and Me, an illustrated book and record album set. Initiated by Marlo Thomas, the mission of the Free to Be… You and Me project was to provide healthy messages refuting and rejecting gender stereotypes while encouraging the positive and empowering post-1960s ideas of gender equality, individuality, comfort with one’s identity, and tolerance. Using her celebrity clout, Marlo Thomas got a number of her celebrity friends to create, write, and perform the modern day lessons to children in song and story form. No doubt the hope was that the parents and other adults in children’s lives were listening — and learning — too.

Program teaches history via beloved quilter, 'Pioneer Girl' Grace Snyder

Program teaches history via beloved quilter, 'Pioneer Girl' Grace Snyder | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Grace Snyder's lively eyes gaze out of her 1903 wedding photograph. There's an astonishing hat atop her head and a tiny, cat-got-the-cream smile on her lips. She perches just behind her cowboy husband, her clasped hands resting near his left shoulder.


            Her story, in many respects, mirrors Nebraska's history in the late 19thcentury and much of the 20th century.


            Born in 1882, reared in a sod house on a Custer County homestead and married to a Sandhills cowboy and rancher, she recounted her pioneer life in the 1963 book "No Time on My Hands," as told to her daughter, author Nellie Snyder Yost.


            Along the way, she became nationally known for her quilting expertise. Two of her quilts were designated as among the 100 best 20th-century quilts by Quilters Newsletter Magazine in 1999. She was named to the National Quilters Hall of Fame in 1980, two years before her death at 100.


            Now Grace Snyder is the focal point of an innovative new history curriculum developed jointly by NET Learning Services, the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Nebraska State Historical Society.


            Called "Tiny Stitches, Big Life," the online multimedia project uses Snyder's quilts and her life experiences to bring pioneer history to life for Nebraska elementary school students. It is the first module of a larger project, "Stories of Nebraska Quilters," with plans to develop additional material about other Nebraskans who are remembered through their quilts.

Loved To Death Or Irked To Death? | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Is anyone else annoyed by this season of Oddities: San Francisco?


Along with a new cast member (Lincoln Smith replaces Korrie Sabatini), the Oddities spin-off (which has fared better than the other spin-off, Odd Folks Home), has been tweaked for season two. Among the tweaks: lots of smirks, fake looks of horror and shock, and, I kid you not, actual “boing” and “doing” noises to emphasize them.

Readers ask about degrading Occupied Japan salt/pepper shakers

Readers ask about degrading Occupied Japan salt/pepper shakers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I got to wondering about Japan’s place in the marketing of these products. The country was a major producer of salt and pepper shakers by the 1940s, and many of them were made in the stereotypical images of African Americans that was omnipresent in this country.

I know that Japan was not the only foreign country that made money off these items (I found some on the web that were said to be marked Germany). So I Googled, which turned up thousands of results of ”Made in Occupied Japan” Black Americana stuff that folks were selling – many caricatures and decidedly crude.

The Black, White and Shades of Grey in Collecting Black Americana

The Black, White and Shades of Grey in Collecting Black Americana | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

According to Howard Dodson, director of the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, “There are two kinds of collectors of black Americana: those who are interested in collecting as a financial investment and those with a passion for finding ‘the missing pages of history.’”


...There is also some concern that part of the drive in purchasing black Americana is pimpin’ black culture.: that this adoption of old images and negative stereotypes is being glamorized in a perverse way. Like hip-hop’s bad ‘rap’ (pun intended), collecting black Americana is sweeping the nation in a concerning way.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

As a white chick, I don't dare collect this stuff -- even if I, as a collector of similar negative sterotypical items about women, understand the desire to document the horrible past.
