Latest Finds

I found this great Singer mannequin at a sale yesterday. The beautiful part of the story is that it was made for Lidia, the woman having the sale when she was 18. I guess if you sent your measurements to Singer Co. they would build the mannequin to match your body exactly. Lidia's mother sewed her clothes from this form. The waist is so tiny, I can wrap my hands around it. Lidia is a lovely lady and I found some wonderful treasures at her home. She blew kisses to all her items as I loaded them in my truck. Thank you Lidia, it was a pleasure.
