A 1940's Ballerina Scarf  that my abuelita ( grandmother) had when she was my age.

I also wanted to share with you my lovely vintage finds!!!!
When I was at the cashier, this lady who made a return on a recent  purchase of a vintage 40's microphone!!She said it didn't work. But it was in such  mint condition that I would buy it any way to display it in my house!! Ha ha!! :)
