Handcrafted marionettes have always been a souce of fascination to me ever since my mother found my first one, Howdy Doody,
in a thrift store many years ago for almost next to nothing. So, I was
pretty amazed to see the original whole cast of characters – Howdy Doody, Clarabell, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, Dilly Dally, and Flub-a-Dub up for sale on eBay recently for a whoping $99,000!
from Dorothy’s Ruby slippers to sexy and elegant Manolo Blahniks to
radical and chunky platforms of the past are beautifully
represented in the Warman’s Shoes Field Guide from acclaimed couture
author and internationally known appraiser Caroline Ashleigh. Learn more at shop.collect.com.
