How About Wigs And Body Parts...?
That got your attention, didn't it?
Here's the thing! As I may have mentioned in the past, my Mother was a doll maker at one time. She had a lot of friends that were into making and collecting dolls and all the accessories that go with that hobby (like wigs, hand-made clothes, and such).
Late last year, one of my Mom's friends, a fellow doll maker, passed away! Her husband was left with a large number of dolls, complete with everything needed to make the dolls from scratch, dress them, and sell them.
This poor gentleman, in his 70's, is completely at a loss as to what to do with all this stuff. Mom and her other doll making friends are doing what they can to help him get rid of all this stuff...but everyone is sort of overwhelmed by the large amount of items involved.
This man just wants to rid his house of these constant reminders of his personal tragedy, and I told them I would mention it on my blog here and see if anyone is interested.
I know that things like the molds for pouring porcelain dolls and doll wigs are not real popular items right now, but if you might know anyone that could be interested...please just drop me a note. I know that he has talked about just giving away some of the molds to anyone wanting to come and pick them up.
Free is a pretty good price! These things are just too heavy to ship, and there are roughly 50 or more of them! Anyway, if you know of anyone interested...or if you need more information, send me an email. I'll give you my phone number and we can get whatever info you might need, OK?
I appreciate your help here, guys and gals. We may not be able to help, but all we can do is to try, right?
Fresh coffee on the patio sound good this morning? It does to me, also!
