New Hopes

On Friday we went to an Art Show in Bellefonte, Pa. It is our favorite town around here, so quaint and it has the best park, ever, and even old fashioned train rides. AND two great toy stores.

So I made up some small dolls and took some of the bigger dolls to show to the owner of one of the toy stores, and she loved them! Brought them all, and she has great plans for us. I am so excited!

Selling dolls in person is so much nicer than over the internet. (For me, anyhow.) I love to see the reactions on peoples' faces, there is noone who doesn't love a Waldorf doll. Also, pictures just don't seem to do justice to the dolls, they are a lot nicer in life.

Well, let's see how it goes, but for now I am very happy to have spread a little love.

You are so right about selling in person. While I love the internet, there is something very exciting about seeing the faces of our happy customers. I also find that most of my Farmer's Market customers have never heard of Waldorf dolls. I get to explain the value of the dolls and the materials with which they are made. These dolls are for everyone!

Good Luck to you!That sounds great! :0)
I have to agree with you as well.Selling my creations in person is so rewarding and I agree with Berrie. Waldorf dolls are something that most customers are unfamiliar with but when you explain why they are made with natural materials and the idea behind them they like it and see the value in it.
We don't have a good farmers market here,and I'm still looking for places in the area to sell my dolls. It doesn't help being still new to the area, but I'm sure I will find something eventually.

Yes! Congratulations!! I hope I'll be able to sell my dolls sometime in the future too. It must be so rewarding to be able to make other people happy with something you poured so much love in...
