We recently took on the storage of an estate (we hope to purchase it)
that includes clothing: a buckskin jacket with bead work, fringes, bone
buttons, etc; 2 buckskin vests with extensive beadwork; a felt hat with
a rattlesnake skin hatband; a couple of beaded bags; a bone breastplate
and a walking stick with carved bone handle. All of the items are of
fairly recent issue, within the last 30 years, have been worn and have not
been cleaned recently (say within the past 10 years). Should I hang the
jacket and vests (they are heavy)? What about the bones, horse hair
ornaments, hatband?  I'd appreciate any suggestions/directions
concerning the storage of these items. Thanks,

Maureen Carey
