I think Etsy’s prices are usually just great. And no auction drama. Vintage orlon Wintuck sweater in original box from ToHellinAHandbag. I have a sweater like this, but not MIB. Nice.

    Thanks Pam! I’d love to see it get a loving home.

    For about 12 years I’ve been collecting those midmod glass coffee carafes & their accessories that were made by so many different houseware companies. I just love the way they were designed to look like industrial laboratory glass implements. And all their different shapes and warmers/stands make fabulous display items in the kitchen.

    That dress is the ginchiest! I’m in South Carolina, might have to trundle up to Charlotte to see you after all these years of reading RetroReno.

    I’ve had a MIB ’69s pyrex waffle set (butter & syrup warmers, with coffee carafe) for ages now that I can’t believe no one has snapped up. It’s so groovy, and its box even folds into a display piece:

    Holy Moly! What a dress. Love the neckline, too. I’ll bet that several strands of pop-it beads would complement it nicely. Just might have to attend the home show in March.

    Love the dress! I purchased one on eBay a few years ago that is the exact same cut, style, and fabric type (“Feels like a stiff wool-y material but it’s definitely synthetic.”), but in a blue-green-cream more abstract print. Like yours, mine was NOS. You will definitely turn heads in this dress! Enjoy!

    My oh my, love the dress!! and you’re right, they won’t be listening…they’ll be oggling and heads will be turning as people pass by you and you’ll overhear “WOW, GREAT DRESS!”
