These are really nice.. glad you saved them... I'm like the rest of the cuties, I bet that if you check with some of the vintage stores someone might be able to tell you something about them. :)

Wow! What a nice find. Bet some of the local amateur theater groups would like to have them for costumes Carolyn/Lillian

Very beautiful. Such lovely finds. The style of the wedding dress-especially the neckline and dropped waist remind me of my sister-in-laws wedding dress that she wore in the early '80's. They say fashion circles around! Thanks for sharing.

Nice dresses... very pretty lace too. You can do a lot with them. They are too nice to dump... Glad you rescued them. looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Wow! Lovely dresses. Yes I do believe the white one to be a wedding gown, and with such style.

Would love to know the history of these finds. Love all the little covered buttons on the wedding dress. So pleased that you saved them from the dump

Beautiful garments so glad you saved them from the dumpster.

If you are wanting to sell them I would try contacting shops that sell Vintage clothing. There is a real market for that type of thing.
So glad you saved them from the dumpster.

Martha Pullen always had something vintage on her shows so I know you will find a market. Good save.

I like the child's dress for sure. It had to have an under dress or slip, because of the sheerness of the blue. Are these hand sewn or by machine? I'm glad you saved them, I would have too.

Carolyn, such beautiful dresses from a bygone era. As suggested already maybe your local museum, historical society or theatre company. Ours out in Australia are always looking for this sort of special items to display. We have a wedding display in our local council in October the NEW and the OLD. Sandra.

Wow, they are gorgeous...the top dress and and bodice of the fourth dress look like English netting...the wedding dress...perhaps silk...they do look like they should be in a museum...hard to believe they were headed for the dumpster...
