Had to pull over and snap a few pics of this old theatre in Kansas, which was en route to my latest buying trip. I don’t document my travels as much as I should and need to work on that asap. I was gone for 4 days and returned last night,triumphant! Quality over quantity this round. I listed a few of the finds tonight:
1940s? Tropical Hawaiian print? Fishtail peplum? We’re so there. You can expect a last minute bidding war on this here.
Rose print 1950s party dress in shocking, bubblegum, and raspberry pink. Shiaparelli would have approved. here
Morton Bergman late 1950s impressionist style blue spring floral cocktail dress set. Wiggle skirting + matching bolero/cropped blouse. High quality tailored look + silk = totally luxe. here
There’s tons upon tons more which hopefully will all be up this week. Some 5 day auctions will launch on Tuesday for sure. This stunner will be for sale via Buy It Now too:
Pick of the litter. Just wait till you see the rest of it!

“(My art) starts with Ludwig the Second of Bavaria meeting Woolworths and Barnum and Bailey over dinner – with Louis the 14th in drag; then it just spirals out from there. I’m constructing a new mythology from the shards of the universe.”
Assorted works by multi media artist and protege of Salvador Dali, Steven Arnold. A rare and incredible talent. View more here.

Wearable art by San Francisco designer Kaisik Wong. Collaborator/friend to the Cockettes and Steven Arnold (among others), inspiration to many, and rivaled by none. To have been a fly on the wall when these were made…
