You never see who buys this stuff and where it ends up; I don't either, much, as it's mostly Sue who works at the shop. So I'm going to show you where this fabulous yellow 40s dress has gone, and I think you'll agree that this dress has found a wonderful new home.
This beautiful young lady does so much more for the dress than Astrid ever could. She's off to Edinburgh next week to study theatrical costume design, and this dress plus the hats she bought are going with her.
Too bad she's going away, because I would *love* to have someone like this model for me all the time!
Changing the topic completely now, I've had a lovely Saturday. A friend drove me around all morning, helping me with some errands and buying things for the shop.
I cooked all afternoon, whipping up an enormous triple batch of Froogs' Cornish pasties. As soon as my friends and family saw them here on the blog last time, they all said 'ooh-ooh-OOOOOHH...can I have one?' (Or in Sues case, 'WHERES MINE!!!'). A couple of glasses of champagne rounded off the evening nicely and I'm early-ish to bed, ready for more buying tomorrow morning and stock preparation tomorrow afternoon.
Have you had a good Saturday? What have you been up to?
