                   Everything Old Is New Again
Use whatever adjective you like to describe the sometimes exquisite, sometimes funky heirlooms to be found in Delco — “retro,” “vintage,” “upcycled” — but we call them treasures. Much like real treasure, the adventure is in the hunt since you never know exactly where the next prize will be found. Don’t have a treasure map, you say? Well, sure you do. Pick up the closest map of Delaware County (whether it be the old-fashioned paper kind or good ol’ Google) and plan a scavenger hunt like no other. For adventurous types, pick up a paddle at one of our local auction houses such as Briggs Auction (Garnet Valley), Freeman’s (Wayne), William Bunch Auction and Appraisals (Chadds Ford), or Wilson’s Auctioneers & Appraisers (Chester Heights). For a more relaxed outing, plan a route through our many well-stocked (and fun!) antique shops, including Ardmart Antiques (Garnet Valley), Brandywine View Antiques (Chadds Ford), Gradyville Den of Antiquities (Gradyville), Hidden Treasures Antique Mall (Media), Springhouse Antiques (Media), and Uniques & Antiques (Boothwyn).
 to their barracks. And while there aren’t any taps to
turn off on VFMAC’s Wayne campus, the cadets here keep the tradition alive in
an annual display of military precision and spectacle. This year’s Military Tattoo, to be held on November 16, will include performances from several groups. Past perfor- mances have included many VFMAC ensembles, such as the school’s Regimental Band, Field Music, Regimental Choir, and Precision Drill Team, the U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, and the U.S. Naval Academy Silent Drill Team. Guests who bring a new, unwrapped gift to donate
to the United State Marine Corps Toys for Tots program receive free admission.  DESTINATION DELCO 17
