Next weekend is our Second Hand Rose Fashion Show and Sale, salad and dessert bar etc. Ticketholders, line up at the door at 11 a.m. for shopping like you have never seen. You will have the opportunity to buy the most exquisite clothing for the lowest prices imaginable. Nonticketholders, get here at 11:30 a.m. and we'll throw open the doors and let you in on our bargains. We are talking designer clothing. We have seen labels like Coldwater Creek going for a song.
Our salad and dessert bar luncheon for ticketholders will start at 12:30 p.m. We are sorry that we can't accommodate any more than have already purchased tickets, but next year we hope you get your tickets early. After the luncheon, there will be a fashion show featuring some of the best of the clothing available to purchase. Nonticketholders will be able to enjoy the show standing to the sides of the main gallery and you may purchase beverages if you choose. Saturday the 21st will be a great time and we're looking forward to seeing you there.
Don't stop there. While you're at the museum, grab a flyer for Jethro's and dine out on April 25, and Jethro's will donate a portion of your check back to the Historical Society. If you haven't been to Jethro's, you are in for a real treat. It is an excellent restaurant and sports bar featuring great food and atmosphere for all. Don't miss this chance to treat yourself to a great meal while giving something back to your local museums.
