Most of the items are then wrapped in acid-free tissue and placed in archival storage boxes. Thanks to Sarah's efforts, it's now much easier to find a particular garment when we want to put in out on display. You can see that our storage room is getting quite full.
Speaking of displays, you can expect to see a LOT more fashions out on the museum floor this spring. Last week a big shipment of mannequins arrived, so now there are 40 torsos and lots of appendages keeping Sarah company in the back room. I'm sure she'll be happy to see them dressed and on display!
