The Lace Museum is pleased to announce the second Vintage Lace & Linen Sale of 2019.  Sheer bliss to collectors, sewers or crafters, and dealers, the sale is also an opportunity to see and touch pieces of lace only on those three days that you would otherwise likely never experience, and even take home treasures at prices that you will only find at The Lace Museum

This semi-annual sale is a critical source of income to keep the museum doors open and to help continue our mission of preservation and education.
