Paper People

Grace and I took a little trip across the sound last week to Edmonds to see the Paper People exhibit at the Edmonds Historical Museum. This is a sweet, small museum...only two floors...that was formerly the home of the Edmonds library and City Hall. The ground floor houses a permanent exhibit commemorating the centennial of the incorporation of the city of Edmonds with several full sizevignettes showing changes from 1890 through the 1950's. It's very charming and each vignette had so many of the old vintage things we love. Upstairs was full of paper dolls! I've taken some photos to share with you. This was a wonderful little exhibit. If you love paper dolls and you're stopping in Edmonds be sure to take a look!
