It was so wonderful to be a part of the Coutour and Doll Show in Harlem this past weekend. It reminded me of how much I loved receiving dolls as a child. But these dolls are for both children and adults. They had something very special; because they were made by hand they seemed to be infused with spirit.
Here is my purple beauty. She is a little difficult to see up against the purple shrug I tried on by Laura Gadson. The quilts in the background are also by Laura. It’s funny how the one to my right has a similar hairstyle as mine.
I so enjoyed sharing Anu Essentials in this setting with artist of a certain cultural slant. And the customers were amazing too. So many of them walked through looking like works of art themselves. I will be selling again with Shimoda Accessories at the on the weekend of December 5th and 6th. Please come by and check out Anu Essentials and the other artists that will be selling one of a kind, amazing works of art for and this gift giving season.
