I traveled back to Pennsylvania from Washington DC for the Thanksgiving holiday last week. I love going home to my parents house because my mom and I get to hunt around thrift stores and flea markets for antiques. This visit however, I came up with a great find straight from her basement! Sometimes the best finds are already at home.
This feedsack, that held grain for hens, was manufactured in the city I was born in; Allentown, Pennsylvania. I also went to high school in the town of Northampton, Pennsylvania which is also stamped on the bag. The patina and wear on the bag is perfect while the screen print is still crisp. I currently have it hanging in my kitchen in DC and it reminds me of home.
