21 years ago we did an estate auction for our best friends selling their parents belongings. The family years ago had a famous German restaurant in Gold Hill. At the time of the auction i remember thinking the dress was just too cute to put in the auction, i knew someday our friends would want it! The waitresses at their family’s Heidelberg Inn wore these traditional German folk dresses. The parents came from the old country so everything in the restaurant was authentic. I found the dress in storage this week, I just got it back from the cleaners I’m so excited to share my picture. Sending the dress to them today!!
*Notes the dress is silk ,all hand made, the lace and ribbon are spectacular and there’s a different fabric that holds the lace inside with hand stitching that’s pink! It’s so cool they probably bought all the fabrics in Germany!

These purses are very unique. The bead work is similar to that of the tribes in the Great Lakes region in America at the turn of the 19th century. ”
Purse measures 2 7/8″ in diameter x 2″ high. circa 1903
Practicing filming myself in these videos, I will get better I promise!
