I've finally set up my first items on Etsy. You can see the items and check them out on the links to the right. I have quite a few of these lovely lady cameos, but every one is different and all are quite intriguing.

The necklaces are clay with a leather strap. There is an amber colored bead that allows you to adjust the length. The glazes create a unique effect on every piece.


I really love these. Every time I've ever worn one I've gotten a compliment. I hope you do too!

Touch of Class

I also sell things in my mom's booth at Touch of Class in Sherman, TX.
If you happen to be drivin' down hwy 75 and goin' past Sherman, be sure to stop in and visit. The 3 floor antique mall is located on the square. There is also an antique museum on the third floor.
118 W Lamar St
Sherman, TX 75090
My mom has two booths in the windows on the second floor. I sell books, vintage clothes, pinups, and misc. funky junk.

 Here's a picture of my little book nook. Right now all books are 25% off.

Here's an example of my pin-ups that I have for sale. They are usually $5, but I'm running a sale this month where they are $3 each or 2 for $5.

I do hope you'll stop by if you're ever in the area. This is a great little (actually quite large!) antique mall and the people that work there are really friendly. Visit my mom's blog to see some of her great primitives, shabby chic, architectural, and otherwise cool stuff that she has in the booth as well. We both love findin' interesting things and selling them so we'll be workin' on some regular updates!

Polyester Princess

The following dresses are listed on eBay with an opening bid of 99 cents.
These vintage dresses were all seamstress made in the 70's-early 80's.

A shimmery, mauve, polyester dress with fluttery, split butterfly sleeves.
Size is medium to large (Some dresses I can wear medium, some large and this one fits me nicely.)
This dress will make you feel like a Greek goddess from 1980. All you'll need are roller skates and leg warmers.

 CUTE Tennis Dress
1970's Tennis-style, yellow-orange dress.
Measurement across chest from seam to seam was 18 inches. My mannequin has a 34" bust, but polyester is nice and stretchy so this fit my 38" bust without lookin' like I was pullin' the seams so it should look good anywhere within that range.
Super cute as a mini-dress. Would also look adorable with white capri pants or skinny jeans. The thing I love about polyester is its ability to maintain its streamline and crisp shape with minimal need for ironing.

Bohemian Lolita Dress
eBay Listing
My guess on the year is late 70's, possibly early 80's. The style is very 1970's bohemian with its polyester fabric, but the shiny peach ribbon says 1980. But who cares? It's got a great hippy OR Lolita look.
I'm guessing the size to be a medium.
This dress does need to be washed before wear. It had some spots that came right out when I rubbed pre-treater on it. I don't dare put it in my mom's washing machine though because the machine has a bad habit of creating stains that weren't there before. I just don't want to chance it with this adorable dress.
