Value of early 1970's United Airlines stewardess uniform & cocktail serving trays

I'm far from an expert on aviation memorabilia, but I picked up this United Airlines flight attendant uniform and cocktail serving trays recently and was hoping to get a better sense of their possible value.

This writeup (http://www.uahf.org/ua_flight_attendants_fashions.asp) suggests that at least the uniform is from the early 1970's, around the time the 747 was launched. The serving trays appear to have been made in Italy by a company called Webel.

The uniform still has the original tag on it and seems to possibly be unworn. There are a few small dark marks around the fabric, but it's in otherwise perfect condition.

I did find a sold listing on ebay for just the dress for $174 https://www.ebay.com/itm/united-arlines ... 7675.l2557

There is also a sold listing on ebay for what seems to be the prior version of the uniform which also included a hat https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-United ... 7675.l2557

Any thoughts on value for this uniform and the trays would be most appreciated. Also, do you think the items would have more value as a set or pieced out?

Thanks!
