Show and Tell Friday!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! To find out more and get a list of everyone involved today go to Kelli's House.
Today I'm showing you the most fun part of my shop. Believe it or not it is the tiny bathroom.

This is the wallpaper border I have around the middle. I already had my theme picked out and couldn't believe it when I found this paper. Someone had ordered it and never picked it up so I got a good deal, too.

This is what you see when you open the door. The fox stole and hat on the mannequin were given to me by customers.The crochet like purse was my mothers.
This is one side wall.

This shelf holds two clutch purses and two pair of gloves donated by customers. The perfume bottles, compact and gold hanging purse were my Mom's.

The other side wall.

I love this turquoise feather hat!
This set also came from a customer. She was in her 90's when she gave it too me. She had made them for her wedding. They are also turquoise but made of velvet.
I hope you've enjoyed my beauty shop tour.

While you're here why don't you check out my daughter's "blog-shop",
