These have been reprinted from the May 2004 Edition of The Collectors Newsletter:

After you read these stories, tell us if you have had any experiences with vintage items that were found in unusual places. Send them to newsletter@tias.com and we may publish it here . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage.

-In the last issue a reader sent us a story about their "Outhouse finds" another reader responded with this note... Concerning the items found in the outhouse, but the owner didn't want to dig in the hole. An archaeologist friend of mine says that an old outhouse hole is a great place to search for historical artifacts. When outhouses were of no longer use they became the perfect dumping place for garbage and trash. This creates a timeline (from the bottom up) of what was used during that period of history. The items found can be wonderful for the historian as well as us collectors. He also said that after 50 years the "waste" HAS TURNED TO dirt and you have "clean" digging all the way down...Dale in Franklin, KY

-- Another story -- I work at an antique mall and found a portrait plate/bowl which at first glance I just thought was pretty. After examining it closer it was an advertising plate for a grocery store with my grandfather's name printed on it. My grandfather passed away before I was born but I knew he owned a grocery/butcher store from my mother's stories about her childhood. I was so excited to have found this treasure and couldn't wait to present it to my Mother for her birthday two months away. It was hard to keep the secret for two months but I managed. My Mother and everyone in our family was shocked and very happy to have this treasure and memory of my grandfather. It is now displayed in my Mother's curio cabinet for all to see and admire. Someone up there must have guided me to this. I am still amazed!!!

Here's a vintage recipe sent in from a reader.

Icebox Dessert

A layer of vanilla wafers in a 8- x 8-inch or 8-x 12-inch baking dish
Covered with a layer of chocolate pudding.
Repeated with another layer of vanilla wafers
And another layer of chocolate pudding.
Chilled in the refrigerator,
Then topped off with a generous layer of whipped cream.
Kids young and old loved it, and it was easy on the cook.
