Did you ever carry a handkerchief? You know, fancy cloth items that you either stuffed in your back pocket or carried it in a handbag. Made of lace, silk, etc. handkerchiefs once were an essential accessory in most folks’ wardrobe.
During June, the Steilacoom Historical Museum is featuring an extensive handkerchief display–from souvenir mementos to dolls made from the fabric and more. The pieces on display are all part of Annette Zweig Donham’s collection. “AZ” will speak about her collection at a summer lecture at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24 at the Museum.
The Museum’s gift store also features contemporary handkerchiefs for sale.
