Oh! This is ever so helpful--thank you for all the pointers! Now I totally don't have an excuse not to buy some really fantastic stockings. ;)

Nancy Cook

wow
great idea
love how you gussied them up with the vintage ads

What great ideas! I'll have to try those boxes. I use a product called Silkease 1-Step Wash and it helps prevent snags and runs in my stocking. I found it online at Therawear.com and the link is http://www.therawear.com/silkease_wash_10oz_bottle.html if anyone is interested. It's been quite wonderful in preserving my stockings! I highly recommend it!

Curses! I just put an order in with Sock Dreams for a pair of Cuban Heel Thigh Highs, I didn't think about getting a pair of gloves for putting them on! Ah well, something to go on the next order :) (No free postage to Australia alas!) Thank-you so much for all the great advice!

Lacy

Another thought! Old toilet-paper tubes, standing upright, would be a great way to separate them by pair!
