Sometimes You Fall Out Of Love

Back in February, I bought a vintage mannequin from the thrift store. I was in love with her. You can read about my post here I had to rescue her and take her home. I named her Mandy. I thought we would be happy forever.

Last week, I came to the painful conclusion that we were not working out. Sure, I had used her to model this messenger bag

and she looked beautiful in this baby blue sweater

and how cute is this vintage apron?

but most clothes simply did not fit her right. She was too short to model skirts or pants and too big boned for most shirts. Sadly, I decided to list her on Ebay. She is relocating to sunny Florida where I hope she is happy.


  1. It's so hard to find a good mannequin. I ordered one and she's actually a size XS/2. Nothing fits. Also ordered a child mannequin and it's actually an infant up to a size 2T maybe. Sigh. . . .

  2. Did you sell her? Oh Becky I wish I knew! I am a seamstress that needs her!

  3. I can't help but think of that Barry Manilow song....oh came and you gave without takin'...but I sent you away....oh Mandy.. (sniff)
