Costume college: day 2- Collection tour (part 2)
Western Costume continued….
We were given a tour around the facility. Starting with the shop where you can find anything you might need for a project.

Luckily the most ornate of them on display in the Lobby showing off some fantastic goldwork. I’ll make that a separate post later this weekend showing those off.
