Here are some pictures of what I took and what had to be left at home.
Collecting bridal is not for the faint of heart or frail body!! It takes stamina to move, pack and store bridal gowns and those crinolines!!
That is why I have friends, good friends, strong friends and 3 strong sons (oh okay, and a healthy husband).
So much to collect in this collecting realm of bridal. I had no intention of becoming a collector of wedding dresses. When I was collecting vintage Barbie dolls and clothes I kept a look out for the first dress styles, 1959 to 1968, of real dresses to match Barbie’s fashion. Wedding dresses are like teddy bears, even though I am not a collector of teddy bears more than a few of them have found their way home with me.
What to take! It is so hard to decide what items to pull and show. I decide to bring my oldest and a variety of items.
And 1972 Japanese (american) wedding kimono.
Thank you Wild Rose Antique Collecting for having us!
Same time next year....okay?
