The D.A. Varnado Store was once known for its fine clothing. We will be showing all kinds of vintage garments, most of which are 50 to 100 years old.
There will be children's clothes, menswear, formal wear, uniforms, costumes and everyday wear, as well as accessories of all kinds.
We have a large number of vintage clothing items in out collection and will have some garments on loan for this exhibit.
This should prove to be a very interesting display. Be sure to see it.
