I wanted to share these with you 2 days ago when I found them but my internet connection went down so I have a lot of blogging to catch up on and SOOOOOO much listing to do.I have a fella coming out on Tuesday to give this old house some modern day internet goodness so I can have reliable internet 24 hours a day.Since I have an online business it only makes sense that I have a connection I can trust,right?Lets hope this current one I'm borrowing sticks around for me tonight as I have a lot of emails and such to go through and catch up on.Trying to do what I can on my phone is pretty limiting.Its fine for keeping up social sites was but as far as the business end of why I use the internet its killing me,plus blogger and my phone don't really get along too well.Boo and hiss to that!
Anyhow,enough of my excuses.So my main concern when leaving the mid-west behind and coming back to California was I wouldn't be able to find affordable vintage.I have had no issues to date so far with that I am proud to say!I've been scoring big left and right and now have about 100 things that need to make their way into my etsy shop and of course I couldn't help but keep a few things for myself.Lets hope my vintage luck sticks around when I finally head up north to be with my hubby again.
I found these gloves and I debated back and forth and the results are in,I'm keeping them.White gloves are good to have but can be a little boring but with rhinestones it adds just the right amount of "tuh dah!".
Pink tear drop moonglow lucite sweater clip,sorry ladies all mine.
The last pair of stockings I tore when I went to very briefly see Wayne the Train Hancock with the lovely Miss Jess back when I was still pregnant with Wayland.For those of you who have followed my blog for awhile you'll recall that was quite some time ago.Yes,I shamefully admit I've been bare leggin' it since then.I found this box of them for $1.00 and there are 5 pairs in the box.I wish they weren't seamless but I'm not arguing it was a freaking $1.00 for vintage stockings!
and now I introduce you to a part of my vintage collection that "may" have grown slightly out of control.Or at least according to my husband is out of control.Vintage mannequin heads.I have 6,now I have 8 because I found 2 in 1 day at 2 different thrift stores!
I have one that is covered in red so when I saw the green one I squealed.Of course it "wasn't for sale" which is when I asked the manager if he'd take an offer.It's a charity thrift shop so I didn't want to be a jerk and low ball them so I went ahead and offered $10.00 which he thankfully took cause I was very willing to go to $20.00 for it.The other lady was only $3.00 and I need to get the poor dear a wig soon.I don't wear wigs but I always feel it looks wrong when I display my vintage hats on a mannequin with no hair...and I have a lot of vintage hats that I like to display,which is why I need the heads,but the requires wigs to go with them....which is probably why my husband thinks this is kind of out of control.Maybe.
Well folks,you all have a safe and fun filled weekend.I'm off to try and edit some photos while I still have this good connection.Yep,I have a rockin' Saturday night over here,be jealous.Hehe!
