My heart really skipped a beat when I came across this ebay auction. I was randomly searching, as I often do for things I don’t need, but just want really badly. And after typing in a search for anything with vintage hair in the title, I stumbled upon what appears to be auctions by Lana Turner’s daughter for some estate items including some of her hair accessories.
I almost started to weep. Lana Turner is a vintage hair icon to me. To own something that she wore in her hair would be such an amazing treat. Granted, the items are not going cheap. I thought I would share with everyone, so if you felt the same way I did, you could weep a little too.
Her daughter writes about Lana, “My Mother, Lana Turner had a passion for jewelry. She loved her rhinestones as much as her diamonds. Her costume jewelry collection was so large she had to keep it in custom made dressers that lined her walls.”
