When Tereasa Surratt's husband convinced her that they should buy a derelict summer camp in Wisconsin, they had no idea the treasure trove they'd inherit with the property. While renovating the decrepit cabins, they kept stumbling upon curious objects, some dating back ninety years or more: a Boy Scout patch, an old sled, a pristine set of Fiesta Ware, dozens of midcentury aprons, an untouched box of board games in their original packaging. Rather than discard everything, she set out on a five-year expedition to turn the more than 150 found items into full-fledged collections, knowing the power that one mundane object has when grouped with its siblings. Relying on her own thriftiness, she only acquired pieces for free or at a bargain price: items that she found, negotiated for free, or unearthed at a flea market.
