This is a 1940's 28" tall waitress . She would look great holding a tray of food as I would believe that is what she would have been used for on a display counter . I bought her a few weeks ago and paid It was in backroom to be shipped when she was sold by error in store to another person . Very disappointed that a person went in back room and asked to buy her . Clerk did not check that she was sold . I was going to restore her but instead got a refund :-(. Love her but things happen .

    Wow, huge disappointment. The store should have contacted the person that bought it and told them it was sold in error. Ah well, life gets messy sometimes! Hope you find something even better!

    @Phil . I was so disappointed and it should never have happened , She was very upset that a employee sold her while she was out of store BUT she also should have tagged her sold :-(
    eye4 I do not know store she was for sale on ebay at time . I was bummed out .
    The reference above by susan had to do with a mannequin she had that I did not want Just better photo's . The waitress was one I wanted .
  19. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    @eye4 that is what I thought also , But she was paid for and payment cashed waiting to be shipped . I have a fague memory of the store having name of Antique something . Not Ebay store but they sold out of their Antique shop also .
