The 80 year old couple lives in East Mesa, Arizona, but they first met in a dance hall in Germany. In an interview with New York Post Paul revealed the reason he started to collect gowns for his wife Margot, “We danced all night, and we fell in love that night. That’s the time when they had wide skirts and petticoats,” Paul says in the video.
Once he started collecting he never stopped. He purchased most of the gowns from sales. He does all this so that his wife wouldn’t have to wear the same gown twice. Paul’s collections is so huge that stores all across America want to buy them. “When the styles were changing, they would call me up and sell me the dresses at a very reasonable price,” said Paul.
However Paul and Margot decided to stop collecting cloths in 2014 when they stated to run out of space. Out of those gowns 7000 have been sold and around 48000 thousand are up for grabs, However Paul have 200 special gowns which he will never sell because he wants his wife Margot to wear them
