I meant to do this earlier, but I've been busy....

I recently acquired a 1948 GE Stratoliner Electric Range... for $50! It's not perfect, but it is working order, and only needs some minor cosmetic work. Excuse the pic quality, was taken with my phone.

With the fluorescent light on. :)

Vintage clothing tailor in Richmond, VA [Feb. 24th, 2010|03:24 pm]

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

This is a pretty specific question, but I'm hoping someone might have a recommendation. I recently have moved to Richmond, Virginia (USA). I have also lost weight which means a lot of my vintage dresses don't fit quite right anymore. Taking them to any old tailor just makes me a little bit nervous. Does anyone know of a tailor in Richmond that has a good knowledge of vintage clothing? Thanks so much!
