I wanted to re-post a message that I posted during the middle of December and add a little bit to it. First here is the message that I posted: This will seem like a weird post but we are working on some Vintage Christmas Display ideas and are consistently looking for Vintage Christmas Items. We are also looking for items like Sears and Montgomery Ward Christmas Wish Books as well as Ames Department Store, W.T. Grant Department Store and F.W. Woolworth Department Store Christmas Ephemera, advertising, bags, you name it. Message us if you have anything that is just hanging around in that box of stuff that you aren't really sure what to do with.
Here is an addition or follow-up: We are always thinking about how we can best display our Rural and Farm Life collection that continues to grow - thanks to so many of you - and also our Christmas Collection as it continues to grow. We would love to have a permanent site rather than being a "mobile" museum but don't really have the financial where-with-all to go looking for a building, etc. However, that said ... we are really open to ideas and if you or someone you know happen to have a building or space that you are wondering what you can do with it rather than having it sit open ... we would love to explore with you ... we have even envisioned doing everything in a barn space that could include all of these displays and bring people to our area. It is a dream but if you think you have some thoughts on making this dream a reality ... please, please, message us!
We are also looking for mannequins and mannequin parts to be made into displays and animatronics. If you have any you are willing to part with message us.
