Show Your Junk, With Brooklyn Brainery
I’ve had the pleasure of attending many events from the Brooklyn Brainery (and teaching, too, from time to time!) but “Show Us Your Junk” was absolutely one of my favorites. Essentially, the event was an adult show, a criminally fun concept. I brought a 1864 2-cent piece to show, but there were so many fascinating objects I had a hard time settling on a favorite. A vintage 1940s ham radio QSL card (retrieved from a contemporary correspondent of the presenter’s grandfather!), a traditional Namibian knife and Ben Sisto’s Casio F-91W (pictured below) were standout objects!
Next time I’ll try to put together a notice ahead of the event… I can’t wait for the next crop of show and tell facts.
