Sunday Morning

Good morning out there. It's been a winter wonderland on Cape Cod the last couple of days. However, rain is expected today and it's looking like another green, or rather gray Christmas here. We'll see.
On the site, we've added a few things here and there the last couple of weeks - a couple of dresses in the vintage dress category; some peignoirs/negligees in the vintage sleepwear section; a couple of new pantyhose styles in the hosiery section; and some new girdle selections from Cortland and Rago in the shapewear section. We've also been going through our thumbnail pages and adding our prices (and MSRP prices when available) to those pages, to make it easier for you to comparison shop. We are a small, hard to find Internet store, so we rely on customers who do a lot of searching and comparison shopping. If you do, you'll love our prices.

Garters are Back

Rago has announced that all shapers and girdles in the Lacette line will once again come with garters, beginning January 1, 2009. Rago had discontinued garters on all Lacette styles (except for the 9357) in 2006. They are back due to popular demand. We will have some mixed inventory for a while, but if you have a preference for garters, let us know when you order and we'll take care of it. The Shapette girdle line continues to have garters, while most of the Diet-Minded line has garter tabs (we can provide the garters on these at no extra charge).
Meanwhile, the Va Bien 1292 is back to having garter tabs. Again, we have some without the tabs, but if you need the tabs and the garters, let us know.

Treo Vintage 50's Advertisement

Unfortunately we do not have any of these beautiful corselettes for sale on our site - Treo is no more, and this style of upscale all-in-one girdle has faded into history. Women in the 50's and well into the 60's had a large selection from which to choose, from manufacturers such as Treo, Lily of France, Poirette and many more..
Treo had headquarters in New York (200 Madison Ave.)and Montreal....

Smog. Wet snow. Icy rain. Pike Traffic. Route 20 unsalted, more of a suicide alley than ever. Moonstruck Cafe still nestled in a gravelly slope in Charlton. White headlights and red taillights snaking in the distant dark hills blur into a hallucination of what looks to me like construction cranes decorated for the holidays. Our usual five hour round trip bringing my girl back to school turned into ten tired hours on the road during the busiest travel weekend of the year, Thanksgiving. I'm thankful to be home.
