We were very lucky to receive several donations of costumes in 2009. Some objects will be accessioned into the VCCC, due to their historic research value. Other objects are also very valuable to us for our theatrical costume collection, used for Drama Department productions.
Unfortunately, our space is very limited! We will have to consider future donations very carefully. We will only be able to accept objects that are not similar to objects already in our collections. Not only is space an issue, but all objects donated to the VCCC require special archival boxes and tissue paper, and our funding for these supplies is very limited.
