SOCKS     NEW!$15 each or 2 for $25

How fun are these?!! It's a pair of ladies novelty socks with images of perfume bottles, compacts, powder puffs and lipsticks all over them!! The socks have a black background and the colors of the vanity items are bright red, pinks, grey and white. There are also red polka dots throughout. The socks are made of 80% cotton, 16% nylon and 4% lycra. There is a red 2-1/2" band at the top and the heel and toe are also red. They are a nice weight and stay up on your lower calf. The socks measure 8" from the heel. They are a size medium and will fit shoe size 7-10. They were custom made for Lady A Antiques and made in the US. I just love novelty socks, don't you?! Great addition to your sock collection and fun to wear while carrying your favorite compact or perfume bottle!
