Fun, Fashion, and Nostalgia



twiggyWhere were you when Twiggy, Audrey, and Coco were setting fashion trends? Looking for a bit of  1960’s British and French nostalgia?

Visiting the Cummer Shop will bring back fond memories of these three elegant ladies. Spend time looking through the wonderful assortment of books,  gift accessories, and wearable art currently on display.  Designer bags by  Jane Elissa are fun, fashionable and are sure to spark conversation wherever you go.

Just for Fun Trivia: What was Twiggy’s real name?  When is Twiggy’s birthday? What year did Breakfast at Tiffany’s debut? What signature scent was Channel known for?

An Event Not to Be Missed: If you’re a big Breakfast at Tiffany’s fan, you won’t want to miss Dinner & a Movie at the Museum on November 21st!
