vintage FOOD?

While on my way home from Virginia through North Carolina and on to Tennessee, I stopped in a number of “antique malls”, or junk stores as my mother would cal them, in search of frames for my own work.  But I was struck by the number of meals ready-to-eat (MREs) for sale.  I understand the attraction to un-expired MREs for survivalists & doomsday preppers, but why would anyone buy vintage beans?  You can’t eat them. You can’t really open the package.  Is it kitsch value?  Someone please enlighten me.  In the meantime, here is a Call celebrating Native American veterans.  I am looking forward to seeing the winning design.  You don’t have to be an architect or sculptor to apply.

Check out this Call for Design Submissions from The National Museum of the American Indian (Washington, D.C.) for National Native American Veterans Memorial.  There is no entry fee, and designs need only be preliminary.  Take a look…
