I offered the then Dugald Costume Museum two beautiful flapper dresses in the mid eighties that were in pristine condition on the telephone. I was told in no uncertain terms that they did not need the dresses. There was no invitation to bring them in for a look see.I went on to sell both of them together for just under a thousand dollars ( 1986 money ). Needless to say the person who went so far as to be rude about the offer discouraged me from ever offering again. I kept the 1920 Chinese Silk tasseled shawl, the black velvet full length evening coat with fur trim and 1700's hand woven shawl from Ireland as well as some smaller pieces. I will eventually sell them. I am glad that this museum is participating in a fashion show and I am glad that it exists because I believe that maintaining the past is important. I have to wonder about what they didn't get over the years though as much as by what it did get just based on attitude.
