Welcome to the Gallery of Folklore & Popular Culture!

We wish you a happy and healthy March!

As winter comes to a close and spring starts to bloom, many of us suffer from one aliment or another. So to help you through any of the usual or unusual aliments this time of the year brings, we wanted to present a selection of healing artifacts.

Happy Healing!

This website is dedicated to exploring material culture and contemplating the possible meanings for people who possess these objects. Additionally, we provide information about the backgrounds of the artifacts.

As a professional folklorist, I have collected these objects over the decades. To some, these items might seem trivial. NOT SO. I consider them cultural and historical gems, important clues about society that need to be identified and preserved.
