As dealers, junkers and buyers...have you ever walked into a place and EVERYTHING you saw you wanted....of course , we all have.  I got a call from a friend who is leaving the business (only temporarily I hope).  She said to come over as she was getting rid of everything.  The first thing I saw were all these dress forms...Jackpot!

Then I go on to find tons of wonderful old pearl necklaces...Jackpot!

Then she opens a closet door to find a trash bag full of these great petticoats...Jackpot!

And as if I was not already in heaven, I look up to see the most incredible 50's vintage prom dresses...JACKPOT!

A couple of these I had bought recently, but the two new ones are perfect...Double Jackpot!

This dress reminded me of Gone with the Wind..."I saw it in the window and just had to have it"!

I love the Jackie O feel of this dress.

A tall girl must have worn this as I have the dress form as high as it will go and it still touches the ground.

Very, very 50' and black.

The piece on the top really goes in the back at the waist, but I thought is looked cute as a veil.
Jackpot...Jackpot...Jackpot!!!  You won't believe the wonderful old rusty yard stuff I got as well.  It was a GREAT day!  Maybe I should go to Vegas???
