snow day?

This winter is turning me back into a kid again.  We've had hardly any snow--none that has stuck around anyway.  I was grateful for the unseasonably nice weather back in November, when Andy was working on our roof.  But now I'm starting to get peeved at the lack of Lake Effect.  Yeah, I'm a weirdo.  I would like to get out and do a little cross country skiing, though.

Here's a preview of what is coming to the shop over the next week.

1960s cherry red shirt dress, Cobbies by Cos Cob.

1980s Ralph Lauren wool cardigan with lace collar.

1960s blue wool and mohair sweater with roll collar, by Glasgo.

Antique Edwardian tea dress with filet lace.

Pendleton brown wool plaid bathrobe.

Needlepoint tapestry vest, by Aladdin.

  4. These clothes remind of that '80s movie that's set in the 1930s, Christmas Story. I can see the teacher and mom characters wearing the sweaters! I really like the soft and romantic yellow sweater.
