My husbands Grandmother passed away this past year. She was 94 yrs old.
My husband and I were last to go through her house before the rest was cleaned out, donated or items went into the trash.
I found the usual nic nacks or trinkets, a lot was gone already, but still a lot was left to be sifted through.
I was excited when we got into the garage and there was a closet in there, once I opened it I gasped.
Full of clothing!
This is only a TINY sampling of a few items
I only wish I could fit into most of it! Much of it is going to the local Vintage Clothing Store where I live and do business, or on ebay to find new homes. Some of it I have had professionally cleaned. 2 dresses bit the dust at the cleaners when I went back to get them. Sighhh
Faye had some beautiful dresses, either she or her daughters wore.
Right now we are doing family history research on my husband’s side, piecing family tree’s together. So I have a small amount of old photos my husband got from his Mother of his Grandma.
So I was excited to see one of the actual dresses I dug out of the garage in one of the photographs, Faye came to California from Texas in the 1950s, so this is most likely in the 1950s. Faye and her second husband
And here at home in my living room is Faye’s Dress. Granted this is not as flashy and flirty as so many others I have of hers. But its special to me as its showcased in a photograph. I could not fit it on my other dress form because the chest is too big to pull the dress over, its a small size with a side zipper. But still in good condition! I wonder what the occasion was in the photo.
It looks as if Faye had these items in the garage set out for Yard Sales as many had price tags on them, she had $10 on this one. But it stayed there in the garage, safely tucked away for me to come rescue them all one day and give them new life, homes, and stories to share with others.
Thank you Faye, and by the way, I sure Love that Grandson of yours :)
