Meet Marilyn

I recently decided that I needed wanted a dress form form as a photo prop for my scarves and necklaces.  I had been using a glass vase for modeling my scarves and I must admit, it was quite lame.  For my necklaces, I was using a display easel/bust similar to the ones I use at craft shows.  This worked alright, but longer necklaces never looked quite right on the easel.

I searched ebay and with the help of another etsy seller, found the perfect dress form.  Of course, shipping to Alaska added significant costs, but I was willing to do it anyway.  Then, a friend suggested a I post a wanted ad on Craig's List.  Within one day, I had a response from a woman (former seamstress?) who no longer wanted hers!  I picked it up yesterday. 

Meet Marilyn:

She's simple and basic and precisely what I was looking for.  Yay for Craig's List!

Yay! I just got a new one too. A dress shop went out of business nearby. The black will work well with your jewelry!
