Examination in detail
is always important...

From Jean L.

 

This video, sent by John D. is one we may have posted many years ago; if so, it is worthy a second exhibition, as it is quite special to the Era:

"Came across a video of Francoise Hardy (French singer).  Her song ,`Tous Les Garcons` from 1962,
might be of interest to other Pettipond  followers."The best bit starts at 1min 15 seconds."

Kinetic pettis!


From Kristi

 

 

 

A short while back, we posted a couple pictures of Patti, who passed  away a couple of years ago, and of whom during her life, her husband took many pictures, which he jealously guarded. (However he DID give us  permission to post the ones here, in our Femme Splash area- we believe he, too, has passed away.) Doug M. has provided a HUGE cache of her work, which, we will post  periodically, beginning with these two using a '67 Buick as a prop.  Many are a bit  risqué for The Pond - we will not use those.

Throughout the year, in every town and hamlet, this scene takes place.  Guess we all wish it more accessible!

From John N.     Appropriate area

 

 

'Captain Marno' has sent this delicious representation of The Era. 
Guess we'd all really like to delve in and count those pettis!

 

See, that's what we really like about Era petti-wearing:  There are usually more than two, of differing textures, colors and patterns -
many today only have ONE boring petti!

Personal ad

I have 5 Malco Modes petticoats for sale. All five petticoats are identical: White, model 575 (Malco’s 'Michelle'), size 'M' (medium). All five petticoats are brand new, meaning never been worn, not even once. Four are still sealed in the plastic wrapper they came in; the fifth was opened, hung up so the wrinkles fell out of it, photographed, then put back in its plastic wrapper. Photos below.

 

If these petticoats were bought new today each petticoat would cost $74.99, for a total price of $374.95 plus tax and shipping. Here is a link to the 'Michelle' page on the Malco Modes web site so you can compare prices for yourself:

 

The petticoats I am selling are $60.00 each, plus shipping. I will sell my petticoats either altogether or individually. No tax will be charged. Depending on where the petticoat is sent and the method of shipment preferred (air, ground, USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc) shipping fees will be determined. If you buy all five petticoats at once, I will pay shipping.

 

Please direct all enquiries, including payment questions, to Jim at jcinsc007@yahoo.com.   Looking forward to hearing from you!

Request for anyone with the time and inclination

Over the years, The Pond has tried to maintain a "links list" which includes generic, commercial, resources, special resources for crossdressers.
It has become apparent that we are unable to spend the time maintaining them, specifically checking for dead links.

We were in the process of removing them when it occurred to us that someone out there might take that responsibility. 
It would basically entail checking through them once a month, and providing us with a list of dead links.

Anyone interested, give us a shout.
