Remember when fancy belts for women were popular?
The lovely Searcy lady who wore these belts died in 1999. I obtained them from an estate sale that was held at her home near downtown Searcy AR. They are not very big around (remember when ideal waist size was 25") so she was a slim and graceful lady. This fashion was popular in 1970's or 1980's If I remember correctly.
She had an important friend, the mother of Cher! Click for blog. https://activerain.com/droplet/8GDg. Cher's mother lived in Searcy for awhile. She called herself by the name Georgia Holt.. Georgia was born Jackie Jean Crouch near Searcy Arkansas. She came to live with her Aunt Zela Croom during the late 1930's when her parents separated. She worked in the Croom Cafe, reportedly the only restaurant in Searcy at the time. During that time she met Frances and they became good friends.
You may realize we are talking about Frances Quattlebaum, forever remembered for Quattlebaum Music Store in downtown Searcy. I need a good picture of her. The memory appears of her walking along the streets from her home at 210 W. Center to the music store on court square, always graceful and lovely. Perhaps Searcy Seuths will supply one.
And, while we are begging, how about some info about Croom Cafe??
Old movies now show women with 25" waistlines. It seems impossible.
