Fabulous 50s and 60s

I have been busy in the "shed" looking through my boxes of clothing.

I found a tiny blue, sunray pleated skirt that I wore at the end of the 60s. 

It looks like a skirt for a 6 year old.  I cannot believe I was sooo skinny! Lucky to get it over one calf, let alone a thigh.

I have 30+ outfits from those decades. Ranging from XSSW. Some lovely flared skirt dresses.

Located some of the sunglasses I have collected too.  Yet to decide on an era for some of these.

It will be nice to put full outfits together for "glam" shots. I have a lot of shoes and accessories for matching.

Next post taster:

I also found all sorts of stuff that I made in the 70s.  My first years of teaching, interesting stuff!

Lease or sell my RETRO treasures

I have more time now and have begun to sort my collections of "old stuff".

I have gathered together all my handbags and clothing.  I already have my jewellery stored and accessible. For each of those categories, I need to do a lot more category sorting.  Like a science classification exercise.

I have to decide whether I will set up an online store or settle for a simple promotion website of catalogues or "lookbooks".

I could also use some sort of email marketing, backed up with paper flyers for media, film agencies, theatre companies  and other relevant companies and industries.

Face to face visits may be worth looking at.

The main thing for me now is to get the "glam" shot photography started and posted.

What will I call my promotion website that will have this blog as a companion?

Should I start to be serious about garage sales again?

Will I be able to keep adding to my collection now that the prices are increasing so steeply?

Lots of Glomesh, Oroton and beaded purses

Lots of work to do ... I think it will be fun!
