Necklaces by Cynthia Wutrich

These necklaces use vintage, rare trinkets as charms, including old keychains. 

Celluloid charms from sewing baskets (from the 1920s and later) and French Fry forks (1950s and later)! 

Cynthia's mother's necklace -- "she collected and loved elephants."

Cracker Jack and gum ball machine charms.

Cynthia displayed her handmade necklaces in the artists gallery. Sondra Leeds won a special necklace made for the convention raffle room.

Hoop skirt Doll

From the Make a Hoop Skirt workshop led by David Wolfe and Scott Jorgensen. I had fun embellishing this doll.

2014 Convention

Another wonderful convention has come to a close. I'll post more pictures in the days to come. Here, some sales room classics.

Amy by Whitman, 1965


This is the static cling set...no tabs, just rub the dress on the dolly (shiny layer on cardboard)...the cling is still good after nearly 50 years! I had this as a kid. Loved it.

UPDATE: For some reason the first and last images here were not clickable. I've fixed that, so now you should be able to click to enlarge every image.

Nan's latest sales list  features a book with one of the oldest American paper dolls: the 1859 Godey's Lady's Book. And she zooms into the 20th century with a few Flash Gordon paper dolls, too!  

Be sure to click on each image to read the fine print; the full sales list is below. 

And remember to call Nan first, to make sure the item you want is still available.

Birthday Greetings, c. 1930s


New hope, new faith, new friends,
New strength for every task,
New love to widen with the years,
All these for you I ask.
