My mother purchased her in 1998 up in Big Bear City, CA. They inspired her to make her own gossipy/stitchery friend dolls. I haven't opened that box yet, but I will be putting them up for auction sometime in the future.
I have many other dolls, doll books, and doll patterns from my mother's collections up for auction. But, please be aware, the dolls I’m selling have been in my mother’s collection for years. My family has always had pets (cats and dogs) so there is a possibility that the dolls may have picked up some stray fur/dander by being in their house. If this is a problem for you, please do not bid on the dolls!Note: I do ship internationally to most countries but the cost of shipping is dependent on which country it has to go to and how you want it shipped. (I can mail it to you via first class international rates if your country allows a box that is 20 X 16 X 8 inches. Some countries have tighter requirements than others for this. Otherwise, it would have to come to you via international priority mail even though it only weighs about 2 pounds.) Be sure to ask for an invoice for the exact postage cost. I'll gladly combine shipping if you should win more than one auction. But if you do win more than one auction please wait for a revised invoice so that I can ship them to you with discounts that will cover the reduced amounts of shipping costs when shipping more than one in a box. I try really hard to ship the items within one day of receipt of payment. Thanks for looking and keep me as one of your favorites if you like to make dolls or just collect them. I put the dolls/patterns up as I have time, so you might see new things each week.
