NOTE: All prices shown here on the Garage Sale are the sale prices that will show up in your shopping cart.

I have yet to sell anything on Ebay and yet I really do need to unload some extras. I don't live where a real live garage sale would be worth the time, so this is my cyber garage sale and I will be adding to it whenever items come up, so please check back once in awhile.

I will no longer offer to maintain a list of people to notify when new things are listed due to time constraints. I will keep the Garage Sale page going and let all know in my occasional email announcements and sales, if I have new things listed. Otherwise, it has worked well to be able to supply bargains and other finds to those who just happen to come here serendipitously.

MIXED BUNDLE OF DOLL-SIZE PRINTS

12 Fat Quarters in doll scale prints. $36 Add to Cart

 


BUNDLE OF WOVEN FINE WEIGHT GINGHAMS

These were a true high light of long searches. I needed yardage for my Annabelle series and the size check in the gingham needed to be small. What luck to find these and such a beautiful drape and weight for even small dolls. 1/16" checks. And, it is extra wide (60") which means the fat quarters are bigger (18" x 30"). Tan, light blue and pink. And did I mention they are even better for a vintage look with a wash of my paint overdye. $9.95 Add to Cart

MINI BUNDLE (JUST RIGHT FOR HITTYS) Photo to come

Two tiny pinks coordinated for outfit sets. The micro check is a mere 1/32" check (hard to see in the picture) and the print is also one of the tiniest - both are suitable for small dolls. These are the extra wide width (60") which means the fat quarters are bigger (18" x 30") and of course 100% cotton with good drape. $6.75 Add to Cart

A SHORT BED FOR HITTY:
Due to a special request from a Hitty customer who needed a short bed for her farmhouse style house where Hitty's bed was under slanted eaves (just like my own real house!) because the bed I make for Hitty's regular bed is a four-poster with a canopy rail which was much too tall. At first I told her I that there was no way to cut down the tall bed into one short enough for her needs. However, I remembered that I still had some of the posts from the Early American Doll Series that I could use with the Hitty headboard and side rails after some retooling. So my husband made 12 beds and we did the bed and quilt in different colors. So now if you need more beds for other Hittys or do not want the height of the canopy bed, here is the bed. Sorry, no kits. These are available for $188 which includes the bed, mattress, pillow, bedding and quilt. Add to Cart

PINS - The most unbelievably fine pins by Karen Kay Buckley in the shorter 1" length. Most beneficial for working in silks or other extra fine weave materials where normal fine pins still leave a hole. $9 per Tube container of 50. Add to Cart

PAINTED QUILT RACK (no quilt) from the Early American Series (it could also work for Hitty). Painted dark green. $15 SOLD
HITTY'S NIGHTGOWN AND NIGHTCAP - One set (cape and other bonnet not included) of nightgown and cap made as a prototype sample. Regular price $38, this set $32.
SOLD
Due to a request from a cross-stitcher customer who wanted to make more of the long discontinued Early American Series • Samplers, we dug out the linen mesh and all the original floss colors plus leftover stock of the wooden frames and with a reprint of the instructions and the addition of all the original materials, presto, quite a few kits to be had. $12 each sale priced. PS, these make a nice accessory for dolls sized 9" - 14". Add to Cart

NEWS - This was originally a one-time sale item but has proven to be very popular, so it will remain an item.
THE STORY:
This is a long long story involving getting a new size of the much loved printed cats shown here. A good friend and customer, Jocelyn Benzaia, has been my supplier of the reproduction prints of the cats that I sell finished in a 3" size (shown center front) and the 5" size (shown in the back row). However, in trying to get to an even smaller size for Hitty (1-1/2" tall), I ended up acquiring through a simple mistake in ordering, scores of a 2-1/2" size, which I did not want. So, made up a simple kit to share in the bounty
. The kit has one set of printed parts - front, back and bottom - plus instructions for how to make - you supply your own stuffing.
