Collection to sell extras to spruce up inventory
Props, mannequins, books and other non-artifact items from the Texas Fashion Collection will be on sale at the University of North Texas on Thursday and Friday in Scoular Hall.
The collection, which will be temporarily moved while the new University Union is built, contains more than 18,000 items, including significant historical fashion pieces. The move will take place this summer.
The items for sale will not include the preserved artifacts, but will be other items no longer in use or needed. The sale will take place from about 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the hallway and Room 129 of Scoular Hall, next to the University Union.
Money from the sale will pay for newer mannequins and other needed items for the Texas Fashion Collection.
