I display this collection starting Memorial weekend until Labor Day weekend.

My Independence Day collection started with just stars, stripes, and flags, but I decided to add watermelons. Most people love to eat watermelons during the summer months. Unfortunately, I have only found Black Americana sets that include people with watermelons. I apologize to anyone that finds my collection distasteful or offensive. It is a collection, I am not selling any of my Black Americana sets. Just like you would find photos and information about Black Americana salt and pepper shakers in a library, you'll find photos and information about my collection on this site. Please do not expect me to remove them from my collection. I am very fond of these pieces and you'll notice there are many sets that are not for sale (NSF). Please read the information I found online "Living With Black Americana" by Pamela Wiggins. It is a very good message.
