Meet me at Sing Sing
I don’t know what it is, but I think every girl wants a little bit of Audrey Hepburn in her. Breakfast at Tiffany is one of Audrey’s most well known movies and of course one of my favorites.
One of my favorite parts of the movie is Holly getting ready to go visit mob boss Sally at Sing Sing prison. I never thought I would want to step foot in a prison, but doesn’t Holly make it look so chic?
Another reason why I’m now vying for a visit to a prison is all the buzz around the blog world over prisons that have upholstery shops!
Michelle mentioned that Arizona has a facility with this service.
You can read about the Arizona facility here.
I was frantic to try and find something in my state. I searched and searched, but was coming up empty handed. I even called Jon at work and asked him if jails have websites…they don’t! :)
Finally I figured out how to find out if the services are available in your state.
You need to find your state’s website dedicated to The Department of Correctional Services.
On each page they tell you the prisons that offer the services and if you click on find faculty you can find the prisons address and telephone number.
All of my links above are just for NY state, but if you do a quick search on Google with my key words and your state I’m assuming you’ll find the same information.
I’m now itching to try this out and turn my thrift store finds to beauties like this:
All of the stylish chairs are available from The Divine Chair Company !
So, have you ever tried upholstery services from a prison? Would you?
I'm still toying with the idea, because all of the ones in NY a couple hours drive away from me.
