This week, we are sharing the "Ward & Company Radio Shop" exhibit. This amazing piece is from the collection of Connie Sauve, Exhibit Chairman. The photos are by her.
"I was inspired by the idea of a radio shop inside a radio," Connie says "I started searching radios, and quickly found out there aren't any out there. This whole project was made by Walter Buffinton. I bought it mostly as is from him on eBay. I made it my own by making a few changes. I repainted some of the outside, changed a few of the signs and other things. Then I added a couple radios and cats. I still want to add a proprietor and a customer."
