No, I didn’t bank 55k on my last gig; but, I still feel like I hit the jackpot.
A friend of mine told me about a collection of fifty five thousand taffeta dresses for sale. I was intrigued by the story behind the dresses. Paul Brockmann collected them for his wife, Margot, for over 56 years. They were ballroom dancers and he never wanted her to wear the same dress twice. Let’s just say he went a little overboard as he started to buy fifteen to twenty at a time.
The family rented a warehouse in Gardena to sell them. Definitely worth a look! Check out the links below for more information.
