  2. Who was Bernie Dexter? I'm seeing the name here and there and notice the dresses are lovely but very pricey. I think a blog post is in order for those of us who don't know. LOL

  5. What a stunning selection of items, dear Daffny. Perhaps not entirely surprisingly, the jewelry really caught my eye. I don't have a cent to spare at the moment though unfortunately (sorry), but I will certainly admire it all from afar and wish you the absolute best with this stellar SMC sale.
