Bergenfield Museum Exhibit

The Bergenfield Museum is planning a trip down "Memory Lane" with a stop at nostalgia street, otherwise known as Washington Avenue. So many of the Museum's visitors have regretted the passing of favorite stores that the Museum Directors decided to host an exhibit devoted to long past businesses/stores in town.

While the idea is good, there is very little material available in the Museum's archives to carry out the theme. So we are reaching out to our friends for help in developing this exhibit.

Do you have a picture of a long closed store or a treasured piece of clothing purchased locally that you could loan to the Museum. Advertisements from earlier days, giveaways for public relations, even signed paper bags and newspaper ads would all ad to the show. And the Museum has two mannequins size 6 boy and size 10 girl which would be attractive dressed in clothing from the Florence Shop or other children's clothing shops. All loaned goods will be returned at the end of this exhibit.

If you have something fitting for this show, please call Joanne at 201-384-8400 or come by the Museum any Tuesday or Saturday from 1:00PM to 3:00PM in July.

Please help to make this exhibit a truly memorable experience for all residents. Thank you.
