Good Taste is Always In Fashion

Or should that be, good fashion is always in good taste?

The Friends of Reston Regional Library can confirm the truth of both statements using a recent donation.  A generous Friend, like you, gave our Friends group the privilege of marketing her collection of old fashion magazines.

Yes, old.  REALLY old. As in 1909.  These magazines, on their own, aren't beautiful, and aren't in perfect shape. But WOWZA, the fashions, the artwork, and the glimpse of yesterday revealed in these is priceless.

These are a great find for a fashion design student or professional, an artist, a genealogist, or an author trying to get a sense of time and place.

The magazines are fragile, so they are difficult for us to display and you won't see much of them at the Semi Annual Book Sale**. If you would like to see them, please CALL US at 703-829-5467 to make an appointment to see them or EMAIL US. Here's just a taste:

**Semi-Annual Book Sale starts April 6 at 5:00 pm with Friends Night (membership available for purchase that evening).  General Public enthusiastically welcomed April 7-10.  See sidebar for hours.
