Do you remember the Heidelberg Inn, in Gold Hill Oregon?
Posted at 8:00 pm by 1909ventilo, on July 30, 2015
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!
I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love
