Grandma's Lace

Open July 4 - through October

A look at mid 20th century colorful, useable lace
An invitation is extended to step back into the 1940’s to 1960’s – and remember the laces that adorned every home.  Tatted, knitted and crocheted doilies, crocheted pot holders, colorful tea towels with lace edgings, fancy printed hankies, interesting aprons, and of course, a ruffled doily under the center piece.  Come check out the laundry area, the kitchen, and marvel at all the ingenious ways to keep critters off your food – Pie covers, jelly jar covers, milk bottle toppers, etc.
