Pat Rooney saved her outfits from the 1960s-early 1970s -- and we are glad she did!
Who can forget the platform shoes?
Sweet Mary Janes in bright orange.
Beaded handbags were trendy.
A fabulous velvet minidress with large white collar.
I'm betting this poster hung in Pat's room.

Sandy threw many people off with the wig! She created a clever paper doll set
that featured the outfits she wore at the convention.
Sylvia Kleindinst showcased her original art
Anita Korsonsky, attending her first convention, displayed a paper castle from her collection.
Karen Hunter's amazing artwork -- she captures the stars from some of our favorite TV shows.
That's Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham from Downton Abbey) top left, and
Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York from Bewitched.
Karen also collects Betsy McCall paper dolls and figurines that she shared in Special Exhibits.

Lynne Hills and Sharry O'Hare in hippie finery.
Many people were inspired to dress up -- perhaps made easier
by personal memories of the era and memorable costumes once owned.
Julie Cruz-Jones and daughter Gina Lannen.
It was their first convention and they jumped right into the fun!
Laura Cushing Kidney
Ralph Hodgdon with Jeanette Craker and Jane Borg
Ron Fong, Carol Carey and Monduane Harris
David Wolfe and Sharry O'Hare
David Wolfe took us back to the 60s in style!
The first of two Ralph Hodgdon workshops
Jane Borg and her sister Jeanette Craker
Ron Fong and Linda Hoerner.
Linda designed our logo, centerpieces and name tags -- and came up with the idea of a name-tag decorating station so attendees could color and embellish their own name tags.
