Dozens of Nativity Scenes a Draw for Wyoming Antique Shop
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — There are a lot of nativity scenes on display at one Wyoming business this time of year.
Garey Herman says he began collecting the scenes 20 years ago. The number in his collection now tops 50. Every year, he puts them on display at Herman’s Antiques and Furniture Restorations in Gillette.
He’s picked them up from different places, including an 80-year-old set he got in Sparks, Nevada. Herman's wife, Ann, died almost two years ago, after quietly adding to the collection on her own.
Herman tells the Gillette News Record he recently unpacked some boxes and found nativity sets he didn't know about.
