Recently I participated in my first local sales fair and I did manage to sell two hats! Preparing for the even near drove me crazy but one of my better days involved heading into the beauty store in search of a sale-prop.
I had heard that you could get mannequin heads fairly reasonable and it so happens that I got a great discount on a pretty one with bountiful curls and a bit of a base.
Here she is, Diana Dare modelling one of my crocheted hats:
I called her Ms. Dare because she has quite the attitude, she held her own over those three days, changing hats to suit the mood. Diana is the only name that fit because she is seems to have charm but determination as well.
Looking forward to ding much good work with her in the future!
