Thanks to a suggestion by our friend Sam Miller, I’m doing a space race/astronaut/NASA theme this week! Saturday is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, so this is the perfect theme for the week.
Today is “The Astronauts Wives Club”. Initially a book, then a TV show, about the wives of the Mercury Program Astronauts. The wives would get together whenever an astronaut went on a mission, to support the subsequent wife. Jello molds and rumaki aplenty, I imagine. Another friend of the store, John Michael Alderson, scored a set of dishes from the set of the show!

1950s Dress and matching sweater by Pacemaker Jrs., small, $45
1950s jewelry set, earrings and necklace, $25
1960s glasses by Libby SOLD, but they are so cute I kept them in the post
