…when I’m up too late and home alone. My husband had gone to the Otep concert at the Starland. (Ask him about it – I dare you.) I had been working full out all day and late into the evening on getting ready for my upcoming craft fairs and on filling existing orders. I don’t think really stopped for dinner.
At about midnight, for some reason, I decided that I needed – not just wanted, NEEDED – a vintage shoe form. I’ve always liked the look of old hat forms, shoe stays and dressmaker’s dummies but have never collected or had any real need for them. I don’t actually collect anything, and I don’t do any sort of altered art that might require them.
But late last Friday, I found myself scouring Etsy, bookmarking a bunch of fantastic items and engaging in a full-on price comparison, the way one would for something absolutely essential, like food or a car. How much wooden shoe am I getting for the price? What features does it have? How much is shipping? I mean, I was really committed to making a sound purchase.
Well, the winner was the beauty pictured above from Pinksupply. It is on its way to me, and I can’t wait to see it!
