Following on my previous post, I thought I would share some photos of a lovely puppet that arrived to the shop this week. She is of the later 'Wonky Toys' period, on the cusp of the Pelham Puppets I would say. She has such a lovely colourful costume with three different fabrics used for the blouse. She will be in my care for a while.
This week four rarely found puppets entered the shop. Within just two days all had sold. I never know what puppets will be added to the shop, but if you have a wish list for a certain puppet, I can notify you when it is added to give you a chance to see it quickly.
The problem I'm facing now, is that, with my helpers seeing all the stock as it arrives, they are wanting to keep certain ones. I am usually quite tough on myself and I have "a one in one out" rule should I see one I like, which is harsh on some I have had for years!! Now I have some serious decisions to make though as some lovely puppets have arrived this week :/
I'm Imogen from Norfolk, U.K. I have a love of interesting colourful vintage items, especially from the 1950's. Pelham Puppets are one of my strongest collecting areas. There is nowhere to buy vintage Pelham Puppets other than through internet auction sites and auction houses and I felt there was room for somebody to open a shop.
