We can't be the only ones doing this!

Many institutions have collections of vintage clothing that have been entrusted to their care.  Below is a list of others who have collections.  We are grateful to have such a wide array of places to glean information and are especially thankful to those who have personally taken time to answer our e-mails or phone calls.  They have served as an inspiration to our efforts.
