As a result, she would make dresses, blouses, bonnets, bedding, and many other cloth products out of used feed bags. Hence, Mrs. Marion Reed, a Glenville resident who is active in the Gilmer County Historical Society, got the idea to collect and display some of these innovative, yet beautiful home-made products atthe Holt House Museum for this year's Folk Festival. She named the interesting and colorful exhibit, "Feed Store Fashions."
