    Did anyone recognize the staircase in the first photo?–the lobby of the GM Tech Center in Warren MI and wasn’t that distinguished gentleman at the top of the stairs Chuck Jorden?

    Your collection is jaw dropping and my husband now wants to marry you. This isn’t good!
    I have a vintage British manequin dated with seal and is of “Twiggy” so she would work with some of your sets. I named her Norma Desmond. Pleas ask your wife if she may be interested in her?
    Thank you, Rachel Walker
