Costume Museum of Canada pop up exhibit

I haven’t been able to do much volunteering at the Costume Museum since I started my current job so I was more than pleased when an opportunity came up to volunteer this past Saturday.  Let me show you a general over view of the show today and tomorrow, I will focus on my favorite pieces.
