A couple of weekends ago, we found ourselves taking yet another road trip to Wisconsin for a housewarming party. There we met a very woodsy gent who pointed us in the direction of an apple orchard that was on the way back to Chicago. After a couple of unintentional detours, we founds ourselves in New Berlin, WI at Weston’s Antique Apples’ apple harvest festival! The general store in New Berlin was left completely intact, and I was ever-so-enthralled with the many pristine examples of antique advertising, packaging, and typography!
In addition to this bevy of fantastic antique typography, there was also some good old-fashioned square dancing taking place in the barn. These elder folks were smiling so broadly and quite obviously enjoying themselves something fierce:
The Deejay looked super out of place with his laptop. The music was rather generic-sounding, and was punctuated with a deadpan delivery of “Take your partner, do-see-do, find you a pretty one, ’round she goes…”
