Historic Vienna VA WWII Homefront Exhibit

Easter/Passover Greetings,

Yesterday I visited the Historic Freeman Store, Vienna VA to take pictures of my homefront items on display there. Here I am next to a box of my homefront (mostly workbasket-related) items. Vienna Remembers WWII will be on display until the end of April. See Historic Vienna for more details about the exhibit.

Here is a closer picture of the contents of the box containing: sheet music, a Life magazine with knitter on cover, Hitler statuette with pincushion rump, a victory hanky, Bundles for Britain knitting bag, Bundles for America knitting patterns "for Fighting Forces", bracelet of military & victory charms, r/w/b knitting tools, comic post card, sweater knit for American Red Cross to distribute to a soldier, and scattered "war pack" hand sewing needles.
