Book Seven: The Stereotypical Girl: Sewing Machines to Makeup

A Charmed Life

A knitting bag, thimble, scissors, a working sewing machine, dress maker’s form, scissors the open, sewing machine, spool of thread.

The fun of mechanical charms is that they have moving parts!

“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun— And The Money To Buy Charms.”

Purses, makeup, Mad Money, a phone, a comb, a watch. Oh, and a red hat in a hat box. What else could a girl need?

Sexism in the mid century: there is a turtle at the bottom of the bureau— it was said that women took forever to get ready.

Mad Money was for emergencies. If you went on a “bad date” you had money for a cab. Times have changed: try taking an Uber for $1.

This compact has a mirror but there is only a hint of makeup left.

This compact still has part of a mirror and a powder puff.
