Betty Homemaker—Show us your apron!

From vintage to old fashioned to retro, our textile collection includes some aprons that would make our mothers and grandmothers proud. We are especially pleased to have a couple of vintage long white aprons with handmade lace around the hem and pocket. The half aprons of the 1950s are well represented in our collection as are the cocktail aprons of the 1960s. If you have a picture of a Lawrence County woman in her apron, or an apron to donate, or just want to see our collection of aprons, make an appointment with D Burton or N King.
