Why I Won’t End Up on Hoarders

Posted on | February 6, 2012 | 4 Comments

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time with my new friend, Helga. She doesn’t have much of a brain, but she’s got a killer bod.

Helga is a dress form mannequin. Yes, I now own a mannequin. And I named her. Let me tell you, doing Google searches for mannequins ends in some creepy results.

I know my husband loves me because he didn’t bat an eyelash when I took Helga out of her giant box, assembled her, and immediately proceeded to play dress up.

I bought Helga to aid me in styling clothing for my shiny new Etsy store, CleverlyCurated. I’ve been amassing a collection of vintage and handmade goodies for some time now.  So my choice was simple: either open up an online shop or end up on Hoarders.  I hope you’ll pop on over to Etsy and check out my new digs. You’re sure to run into Helga there. Tell her I said hello.

    This is such exciting news! Going to check it our right now. I know you will have some AMAZING things. Wondering: will it be hard for you to part with them?

    I have to admit it was a tiny bit hard when I made my first sale, but the vintage items were not mine originally, anyway, so I figure that passing them on to someone else just continues their story…
