Nancy Wolfe has been collecting antique clothing and accessories for over 30 years. Her husband Scott introduced her to antiques on their honeymoon, when she bought her first item…an 1860s bonnet. Since then her collection has grown to include items from the late 1700s up through the 1960s
Nancy has presented programs and exhibits for organizations in her area as well as the Kenosha Civil War Museum and the Wisconsin State Historical Society. She was also a contributing editor to the 2006 Antique Trader Vintage Clothing Price Guide and many of the items shown in the guide are from her personal collection.
She was assistant director of the Galena Historical Society and Museum from 1991 until her retirement in 2006.
