Webster House Event

We had a great time meeting the staff of the Webster House and those attending the event this past weekend.

It started with a cocktail happy hour on Friday evening. Lindsey & Gayle from the Webster House helped create displays for the exhibit that remained on display through Saturday.

This table featured fashion illustration by the late Patricia George. The first three were done for The Independent. In front of the illustrations is a sign from the '80s that we acquired through Arbuckle Sign Company, one of Kansas City's oldest companies still in operation, starting in 1884.

Ann Brownfield of the Historic Garment District Museum provided garments by designers and Kansas City manufacturers carried by Harzfeld's.

We had the chance to share some history on Harzfeld's and our book at two talks at 10 and 1 p.m. on Saturday. It was a pleasure to meet attendees including associates from the store. It was also great to see friends that attended.

We have more photos that we'll add to this post tonight.
