This week I made a small stock purchase. Included were a few 1940s gowns and 1940s plus size rayon dresses, shown below in these quick shots. I also got some lingerie, blouses and a box of purses. You'll see the blouses and purses in next week's update, and maaaaaaaaybe the plus size dresses if they are clean in time. With the 1940s gowns, 2 are cotton, so I have to soak them and the other 2 have to go out for cleaning, so they probably won't be added to the site until the following update.

FIRST!!! a message to people on my mailing list. I was having trouble last month using my address for sending out the weekly email updates. So I switched to my regular email address for the weekly updates. But several people have told me that they haven't been receiving the email since I switched.

I looked into using Bravenet for the mailing list and tried importing my address book. But it automatically sent out a sign-up notice to everyone on my mailing list without telling me first. I would never have done that if I knew it would send out a message in which I had no idea what it was saying to everyone. So I apologize for that email from Bravenet. Some people were concerned that my email had been hacked, but, no, it is fine. Please just delete the Bravenet sign-up, because I won't be using that program after all. Hopefully I will have it straightened out next week.
