I have desperately wanted a dress form for ages now. I found this gem from a nice old lady who said she barely used it, but it is in pristine condition, even had the box and receipt (for nearly $200) attached! She sold it to me for $10!
I like to name the things I use (my cars name is Thelma), so I racked my brain for a name for my new dress form, because lets be honest, she needs one. There is an old old old Theodore Gisel book called Hooper Humperdink-Not Him that I have been reading to the kids for years now. In it, there is a party and the kid invites all kinds of people but not Hooper Humperdink...because he's a party pooper. Anyway, one of the people that he does invite is Olivetta Oppabeam (but he's going to have to order more ice cream!), and so I think this lady is going to be called Olive. I can't wait to use her!
I've already gotten grumblings from my hubby about this little end table. At $7 though, I couldn't pass it up. It seems pretty sturdy, definitely more like Pottery Bran than Target. I love it and hope I can keep it around until we move because I think it would be perfect in the new house!
