x-posted, sorry!

Since I have a great deal of older costume pieces just hanging in the basement, not getting any use, I thought now would be a great time to offer them up for sale. I would love to sell whole gowns, but I will absolutely sell just the sleeves or hats or whatever, too, if that's what you want.

Of course these garments can only be altered to an extent, so bear that in mind. However, if you're close in size, I would be more than happy to make necessary alterations to make things fit correctly. They might be perfect for some of the younger girls, too! These garments are all within this general size range: height 5'4-5'6, corsetted bust 30-34, corsetted waist 24-28, and long long monkey arms. While these pieces may have been approved for St. George wear for my characters in the past, I am in no way guaranteeing that they will be approved for you or your character! Please check with Frank on this to make sure. That said, I can however guarantee that these clothes stand up to Bristol weather and wear, because they're all still in really great condition. Feel free to email me at with any questions. All of these clothes are pictured on my online portfolio here and I can provide more detailed photos upon request.

I also have a large selection of freshwater pearl jewelry that I've made for sale. I have earrings, strand necklaces, earring and necklace sets, pendant-style necklaces, chain necklaces, and bracelets, and can do custom orders (girdles, aiglets, billaments, etc) as well. If you're interested in some jewelry (prices $10 up to $90, most between $15 and $30), feel free to email me at and let me know what you might like so that I can email you photos to discuss.
