Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Costumes &
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a small piece
of circus history. Everyone who has been to the circus has been
wowed by the dazzling costumes of the performers. From the whimsical
garb of the clowns to the ornately sequined costumes of the featured
entertainers all are part of the glittering and magical effect
of the show. We have acquired a small collection of costumes and
uniforms that came from the estate of Laura & Fred Landrum
of Venice, Florida. The Landrums were longtime collectors of circus
memorabilia. They created their own museum so that others could
enjoy their wonderful finds. Because the Landrums lived close
to the winter home of Ringling Bros. Circus they were able to
acquire many costumes that the performers we willing to part with.
We do not know the original owner or the size of these garments
although they look quite small to us. Click on the picture to
