The Collections Display Cabinet in the Main Lobby of the Goshen Public Library has a new display:
It is November and getting cold. Therefore it’s Tea Time or actually it’s time to look at Tea sets at the Goshen Public Library and Historical Society. For November, the Community Collections Display Cabinet in the Lobby of the new library on Main Street has a display from three contributors. On the bottom shelf are cups and saucers and sugars and creamers from a collection Liz Tarvin enjoyed over the years. The dark Prussian Blue pieces were part of a set of dishes belonging to her parents, probably a wedding present from the 1930’s. On the third shelf above on the left is a lighter blue tea set given to Liz by her husband Jim on one of their wedding anniversaries-he can’t recall which one. (Can you guess what Liz’s favorite color was?) On the same shelf is another tea set of Liz’s.
One on the second shelf and also the top shelf are a collection of various tea cups that Norma Nunez-Langolis has gathered together over the years, spotting little treasures at estate or yard sales or in antique shops. What fun! And don’t miss a delightful miniature tea set on the right side of the second shelf from Bernie Marone’s home. It looks like the fairies have decided to party!
Each month a local resident (or two) can display a collection. Children’s collections are especially desired. If you are interested, email Jim Tarvin at email@example.com. And stay tuned for a special Holiday Collection in December.
