I know there are many quirky collections and museums all over the world. One of the finest is here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont: the Museum of Everyday Life. Past exhibits have featured pencils, safety pins, knots, clocks, scissors, matches, and more. The current very fine exhibit about lists will soon be replaced, but, fear not, something of previous exhibits always seems to end up sticking around for awhile.
I’m at a loss as to how to further explain what this wonderful little place is (“don’t forget to turn out the lights when you leave”). Instead, I will let a few photographs—of what could easily be hundreds!—suffice. Hopefully, they will also entice you to visit and see for yourselves what “everyday life” actually looks like.
