Albany Artifacts Sale: May 18 at Lost & Found

If you haven’t see the insane Albany memorabilia @hemstitchmill has been posting on Instagram, take a look. There’s an intense amount of really cool and weird Albany-themed artifacts. And as it says on the flyer, they’re all for sale. There’s clearly been an intense amount of work put into finding and curating all these Albany-related items.

Dig through the Instagram, make some mental notes, and on 5/18, head to Lost & Found to celebrate/gawk at/buy all the weird and cool stuff that will be on display.
