[NEWS] FW: RENAISSANCE COSTUME YARD SALE - BERWYN, IL
- Apologies for the lateness of this
missive and duplications. I only saw it this morning. I was not aware that John and Helen had
been ill, let alone passed.
This was posted by his niece, Lesley,
who was a classmate of mine at DePaul. Small world, indeed.

A large yard sale of MEDIEVAL, RENAISSANCE, and 18th CENTURY
costumes and accessories, gently used, store new, and handmade will be Sunday
afternoon on Kennilworth in Berwyn, IL. Please contact me (Lesley Carhart) or
my mother, Susan Carhart, for details. I saw costumes for men, women, and kids
in many sizes - there is too much stuff for me to size and photograph
This is part of the estate sale of two long-time S.C.A. members and costumers.
Both husband and wife lost their battles to terminal illness this Spring. They
spent many years active in S.C.A. and other reenactment events and accumulated
a houseful of reenactment costumes and medieval weapons. We (the family) will
just be happy to see the costumes (many of which were never even worn) used.
We've contacted the local reenactment groups, but we'd love to hear from
anybody else who would like to stop by on Sunday.
All proceeds will go towards the college education of their orphan.
