So as a little graduation present I decided to Bite the bullet and buy a spoonbusk. I have always really loved them, but they have always seemed unjustifiable cost-wise. Serendipitous to this decision was someone posting a link on corsetmakers for busks for $25!!! With shipping it was still half of what the local stores I found wanted.
I am going to use it for a Victorian corset I mock-uped a while ago, but put aside to work on the 1840's corset. The mock-up had some mixed results, so once I get the mental energy I will start to work on it again.
