NWA Collectibles Needed at the NWA History Centre

Lady Sylvia Townley-Peeler stands in front of the poster she donated to the NWA History Centre, made up of 16 photographs of Lady Sylvia in uniforms she wore during her storied career as a flight attendant. When asked her favorite, she answered without hesitation, "the yellow one!"

Have you been meaning to donate your vintage Northwest Airlines artifacts to the NWA History Centre Museum in Minneapolis/St. Paul - NWA's original home towns?
You probably just haven't gotten around to it yet.
A story today in the Detroit Free Press talks about Northwest Airlines collectibles increasing in value. In the article, Bruce Kitt, president of the NWA History Centre has much to say.
After reading it you might be induced to scramble to find old NWA mementos in your basement, attic or deep dark recesses of closets and drawers you haven't cleaned out in years. You may be thinking about photographing them and putting them on eBay or another web auction for some quick extra cash. If that is your desire, go for it and good luck!
There is another alternative you may wish to consider. Maybe you hadn't thought about future generations and how they would enjoy seeing your artifacts in a museum, how they might enjoy a glimpse into the history and heyday of a great airline that has now disappeared from view.
If you haven't done it before, visit the NWA History Centre in person. For details, check out it's website.
You'll enjoy it!
