  1. Just found a beautiful scarf I have held-on for over 40 years, it was a
    accessory to a long lounge like piece I was so fond of in the 1970’s…
    because of the stunning design I have kept the scarf, taking it out today
    I notice what look like a signature and date at the very end of the scarf..
    Well…. armed with my glasses and computer, I discovered it was the
    fabulous design of the sisters…… Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell.

    OMG!!! if only I had not disposed of the dress, but still I feel like I have
    a treasure, your information and photos made my day… much thanks!

  2. That’s a great story & that’s what I love about the internet being able to locate & understand about things you had no prior knowledge of!
