I’m Back!

I have been away from my blog for quite a while.  I have a bit more time now to devote to adding content. There are quite a few things  I have to tell you!

First, I have some rather exciting news!  I was contacted by the asst. costume designer for a new television series and they purchased a lot of inventory from me!  I was so excited, especially when I found out the name of the series will be “The Astronaut Wive’s Club”.  I lived through that part of our American history and can remember where I was when we first landed on the moon. The show will be about the space race starting in late 1950s and ending in the early 70s. The wives had a club, of sorts, that was formed to offer encouragement and support, as they were the only people on earth who were going through the stresses and fears of having a spouse go into space. The series will be based on a book by the same name.  Here are a few of the items they have purchased for the show so far……  I can’t wait to see them in action!  It is supposed to air next year.

New finds!

I went to an amazing estate sale this weekend and found several beautiful dresses.  This is one of my favorites.  I didn’t see the condition issues until I had purchased it and gone outside and looked at it in the sunlight. There are brownish stains or maybe just soil marks on the white stripes.  I am going to try and salvage this dress because I think it is amazing and I love it!  Wish me luck.  I will keep you posted on the outcome.

Meet my new models!

I had my first photo shoot today with two new models. I decided to try switching all my thumbnail photos in my shop to pictures with models. My son asked a couple of his friends if they would be interested and here they are……Caroline and Jenna. They were fantastic! And, so fast! Here are some of the best shots….I really love the look of my shop now! I will be slowly replacing all of my featured pictures with these lovely girls as soon as I can!

Mystery jacket – Chanel?

I recently aquired a beautiful tweed jacket. It’s very high quality, with the fabric being woven by Linton Tweeds, Ltd. in England. The label in the blazer is from the high-end department store, Holt Renfrew, of Canada. I am told they are the Bergdorf Goodman of Canada. Anyway, the mystery comes because the buttons on the jacket have the interlocking C’s ! Also, Linton Tweeds is the company that made the fabric for Chanel. I have researched this somewhat and it is possible that this was an adaptation by Chanel for Holt Renfrew. They had agreements with other designers such as Dior to create special designs for their store label. I have contacted Chanel to check that out! Here is a picture of the jacket –
