johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

nsfw? a baltimore nudist in our dining room


thru the magik of the list of craig, my honeypie acquired this mannequin who apparently modeled for many years at epstein's department store here in maryland.

does anyone have any info or memories of epstein's? the internets is quiet on this topic.

i recall as a lil kid, being kind of embarrassed when walking by hecht's or needless markup or such mally place, and the mannequins were all neekid while they were swapping out the threads. heh.

well this particular one will be transformed into a piece of garden art in the near future. pix soon.

Absolutely! My mom and I used to go to the Eastern Avenue Epstein's usually after a visit to the Princess Shops and G&A every Wednesday before I started school. It was a pretty big store. Women's clothes were on the first floor, Men's stuff upstairs and shoes in the basement. You could go out through a door and cross the alley to the bulk goods side where they kept the toys.

I remember the place always smelled like moth balls and I realized I liked girls because of the bra aisle.

Good times.
