Annie E Has A New Friend – Meet Ellamae

Annie E has a new friend.

Meet Ellamae Title

Meet Ellamae.

My Double Double

She was just waiting for me in the Treasure Hunt Antique Mall a couple of weeks ago.

Ella w Crown

 She was well priced and I took the plunge and bought her with my vendor discount.

Ella in fur

 She is a “My Double” dress form made by My Double Company of Stamford Connecticut.  Her height is adjustable and she is free-standing on a weighted metal base.

This is a photo of the cover of the My Double fitting instruction booklet.  The wire mesh is designed to mold to your body making a dress form that will result in a perfect fit.

Ella in jewlery

I don’t sew so that part doesn’t mean anything to me but Ellamae and I have so many other plans that do not include a sewing machine.  Frank S. Sanders designed and patented “My Double”  in 1965.

I just had to include this description and order form for and illustrated booklet.

Ellamae did borrow a few things from Annie E for her photo-op.

TTT Week 49 Vintage and Thrifty Finds

Buffalo Platter 1972

It’s a good thing I deal in mostly smalls in my antique booth because this week’s finds are smalls all most of which are headed for the booth.  Of course, I reserve the right to keep a few necessities. My supply of white platters at the booth has dwindled to the point I’m going to […]

Well Thursday has rolled around again and it is time for Thursday Thrifty Treasures.

Summer is winding down, in fact, a couple of mornings this week it was a bit cool. This week I have both vintage and just plain old thrifty treasures to share. This beautiful small hand painted leaf-shaped plate from the late 1940’s was in with the kitchen stuff. The back of the little plate shows […]
