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 do not 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.

 

DOLLMAKING ODDS & ENDS

BUNDLES OF FABRICS ~ These are made up from fabrics chosen for their appropriateness for doll making. Bundles will change from time to time as they become available and will change from time to time so keep checking back to see what is available. Please note that bundles are now located on the DOLLMAKING SUPPLIES tab in the drop down under Basic Dollmaking Fabrics.
Sorry, no new mixed print bundles are available at this time. When things settle down from the pandemic, I do hope to add more. There are some mini bundles still available on the Basic Dollmaking Fabrics page.

HEART PEDESTAL PINCUSHION IN PENNY RUG STYLE ~ TOO MANY KITS IN STOCK

This 8" tall (including wooden base) pincushion is made of hand dyed wools in the penny rug style and stuffed with wool roving which allows pins to glide in.

All you will need is finish for the wood - this is explained in detail in the kit. Decorative scissors are optional but available. Normally this kit is $54, but until stock is reduced, 30% off. Sale price is $38. See below for decorative scissors.

SPECIALS FOR THE MAKERS OF MY KITS - A continuation of a procrastination project to hoe out the many boxes of parts of discontinued kits and their finished versions mostly for cloth dolls. It is daunting to pick through deciding what can be sold or given away or sadly taken to the dump. These are some of much more to come as I get more time. When partially worked dolls are included, I figure there are those out there who know my work and can make use of.

Please note that I will be adding to this list more items in time.

FLUMO ON SALE FOR LIMITED TIME
FLUMO ~ A LIQUID PAPIER MACHE POURING MEDIUM for PLASTER MOLDS - NEW LOWER PRICE :
This product (Flumo, made in Spain) is the modern equivalent of liquid (and pourable) papier mache. It has some paper pulp in it along with a more modern and more workable polymer base. This material is the best on the market (I feel) and I have gone to great lengths to have it. It must be used in plaster molds. Liter size (a bit more than a quart) - does not need to be shipped separately from rest of order but may require additional shipping. Due to a bulk purchase, I can now offer a lower price of $22.75 instead of the old price of $28.75. Sorry, gallons are no longer offered due to shipping nightmares. Order 4 liters instead and receive a 10% discount.

MOHAIR FOR DOLL HAIR - This is a smooth but not the silky more realistic kind known as "English" mohair and therefore best for cloth dolls.It is slightly woolier than the English, but much easier to work with. You can see it here in auburn on a Basic Doll and it was also used for Lotties and many of my angels.

SPECIAL OFFER - I have a huge supply of the Auburn and Brown roving from the old days of many kits having it included in the kit supplies, and need to clear out some. 5 yard bags $10.95

CURLY SHEEP'S WOOL FOR SANTA BEARDING

We have been accumulating a lot of the fleeces used for Santa bearding and storing excess in the attic. Then forgetting and ordering more when it is available since it is hard to get this specific type (Border Leicester). When it comes, I have to wash it before I sell it. This is not hard and all of this is as it comes from the sheep. I am selling it very cheap in 1 pound bags you will have to wash yourself with the simple instructions included. You can do this by hand or even in your washing machine. Not all wool is perfect curls and some is dirtier than others, but I have found it cleans up nicely and will make many many Santas. To give you an idea we sell onlu a couple of ounces of washed and picked over curls for a few santas @ $10.95. These one pound bags are on sale for $16 (average market price is $32/pound).
