So what’s your collection story?

So how do you get more than 50 chickens into a 4-by-2-by-2-foot glass display case? If you visited the Home Economics Building during the Pierce County Fair last year, you probably saw how the Geraets family displayed Susan’s collection of chicken items or a Fiesta collection (ceramic glazed dinnerware) owned by Marilyn Galoff. Fair Manager Ann Webb is looking for up to four other people this year to display their collections as well.

With the purchase of some new display cases by the fair, we are offering this unique opportunity to display your collection. Maybe you collect salt and pepper shakers, “smiley faces,” paperweights, bottle caps, bars of soap, or your favorite animal (pigs, chickens, etc.). Whatever your collection may be, check out the rules below and submit your entry for consideration. You will be notified by July 31 if your collection has been selected to be displayed at the 2017 Pierce County Fair. Along with your entry, you will need to tell your story as to how this collection started. Did it start as a hobby or from something from your childhood? Or is it a collection from different places you have traveled?

So let’s hear your story and see your collection. Follow these simple rules and you may have your collection on display at this year’s Pierce County Fair.
