Antique Cage Wasp Waist Mannequin...Tattered Love

 Isn't she gorgeous? I may have mentioned that lately I don't do much in the way of...
"picking" for my website, as I have been focused more on other things rather than selling vintage. I don't need anything else for myself or my home really...I'm trying to downsize some of the antique and vintage that I have collected for years...
I noticed a true estate sale being held this weekend close to home in the Estatesales.net listings and went over to look at a chandelier photo posted for possible reuse as one of my Mason Jar Chandelier orders, but even on the second (and last) day of the sale it was way to expensive to buy for my repurposing purpose:-)...
I about gasped out loud when I entered the sewing room of the home and saw this perfectly tattered and imperfectly perfect mannequin! The price was reasonable and then when I asked if (on this last day) they were doing any better, I was told 1/2 price. And the price was an amazing one at that!...
I love her cage bottom, wasp waist and the fact that someone did a painting job and never finished. Amazeballs and in love!...
She adds to my collection and now I have a trifecta...and by the way you can find wasp waisted new mannequins that we make in the Shabbyfufu Studio at the link right HERE...

Have a great week ahead...
xoxo,

She's gorgeous! And it sounds like you hit her for a steal, even better. I love the partly painted look as well.
