New Opportunity Drawing - $1 each chance, 15 for $10 or 35 for $20

This year, we are having TWO- 2017 raffles to choose from! With each raffle containing 4 items, as wonderful as the items are, why not enter BOTH?
And, for the first time, items in each raffle will include pieces chosen from the museum’s collection.
Your participation is a wonderful way to make a generous donation to support the museum and at the same time possibly take home several valuable pieces of the past!
We’ve chosen items that are not only useful, but would be stunning if framed, and/or displayed in a collection.

RAFFLE #1
Items marked #1 are
a needlepoint picture of a Victorian man and woman, matted and framed,
a petit point purse,
a hand embroidered hankie and
a pair of vintage satin beaded shoes
RAFFLE #2
Items markers #2 are:
an Irish crocheted collar
a needlepoint purse
a large silk fan
a crocheted doily

$1 buys 1 ticket
$10 buys 15 tickets
$20 buys 35 tickets
Tickets can be purchased at the museum, during the Vintage Sales, or by phone, 408 730-4695, using a credit card with a minimum $20 purchase.
We are happy to mail your ticket stubs for phone orders.

A drawing will be held at the November Board meeting and the winner(s) will be contacted.
Might be a terrific way to start your holidays!
Stop in or call us now, and, GOOD LUCK!
