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.

Primitive Dog in Velveteen


Primitive Dog with Tail


Primitive Rabbit on Wheels

PRIMITIVE ANIMALS FROM MY OWN COLLECTION

Sadly due to space constraints I am parting with a few of my treasured antique primitive animals. I chose these 3 because of similarities to others in the collection. All are worn in all the right ways showing how loved they once were by the children who had them as their toys. I have priced each actually below what I originally paid. They are hard to find (I am very particular about just the right looks) and so very dear.

ONE LAST MASON AND TAYLOR DOLL AVAILABLE
(doll on far left in photo)

While reorganizing to make space for Hittys Little Sister dolls, I found a doll that had been labeled as a blonde Hitty, but was actually a Wooden Friend in the Mason Taylor style. I discontinued both the Joel Ellis and the Mason Taylor styles several months ago, so this was a surprise. These dolls were last sold for $245, this last one will be $195. SOLD

 

 

 

 

ANTIQUE DOLLS - SIMPLE CLOTH DOLLS TO MAKE WITH VINTAGE FABRICS OR USING AUTHENTIC LOOKING AGING TECHNIQUES

SELLING OUT - The pattern by itself will continue to be sold, but I have a limited number of kitted sets, complete with vintage fabric for the dresses that were $52. This pattern was my first official pattern only. It makes a simplistic 11" doll with appliqued fabric hair and an embroidered face. The special medium and techniques to make her look old are included in the kit. Two dress variations are given to make from scraps of vintage fabrics or instructions are given for aging new fabrics.

Small Printed Cats
Tiny size (1-1/2") on left, small size (2-1/2") on right.

 

EVERYBODIES FAVORITE PRINTED CATS - A SPECIAL OFFER FOR BULK BLANKS TO MAKE:

In one of my latest cleaning outs I came across piles of the uncut, unsewn cats from my original source (before I purchased the real antique print from my source and created my own printable copy). So, I no longer have need of these. Simple to make, and at the coming season would be small treasures as gifts. I am only selling the printed cloth blanks with no other supplies (all you need is thread, stuffing, a small piece of cardboard to reinforce the base), but I will include a page of the simple instructions. Here is the special part - selling multiple cats in each of the two sizes.

Tiny Size (not shown in picture, 1-1/2" tall - sized for Hitty) - Sets of 7 cats + instructions $20 Add to Cart

Sorry other size sold out.

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.
