Canister Purse in Vienna

One of my Canister Purses was in attendance at the opening reception of an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in Vienna on the rise of that city's department stores in the nineteenth century. Pictured here is the owner of the purse, Roz McNulty, with her friend Lynn Katey, both from Vancouver. Roz is the Vice-President of the Society for the Museum of Original Costume and is looking very elegant in a lovely vintage gown. Both the President and Vice-President of Austria were at the opening reception as well. I'm sure they saw my purse - and must have admired it quietly to themselves.

I will be at Hycroft on Sunday March 19 to participate in the Society for the Museum of Original Costume's Bizarre Bazaar, a sale of new and vintage fashion. The event will include a sale of the Society's collectables, as well as an opportunity to have the inimitable Ivan Sayers identify and date any family treasures that you may own or date family photos based on dress. The Bazaar is a fundraiser for SMOC in aid of their quest for a permanent home for their vast collection of vintage fashion.
