Hot Item...Vintage Sweaters

Today is your chance to get vintage sweaters from the the 1940s-1970s at very reasonable prices. Hannah Tatar '12's father will be on campus today selling sweaters from his company, Ohio Knitting Mills in the Jewett Parlor from 4-6pm.

The mill was founded in 1928 and after WWII, the company started saving and storing all of its sweater designs. "We’ve opened this time capsule, and offer to you our collection of perfectly preserved American fashion and industrial craftsmanship," states the company's website. All of the items on sale have never been worn and appear just as they did decades ago when they were stored away.
