If you have a list of puppets that you are looking out for and would like me to email you when one of them becomes available in the shop, please let me know.
We have always had a customers 'Wish List' and we notify you as soon as it is added. Puppets are not sold privately but at least you will have a chance to see the puppet you've been looking for as soon as it is added.
If we already have your list, please keep me updated as it will change as you find your puppets elsewhere and you seek out new ones. :)
I was saying in a previous post about my 'one in one out' rule where pelham puppets are concerned, this one was a tricky one! I have had the Devil on the right in my cabinet on display for a few years, standing next to the wooden toothed Witch and being looked down on by the Parson!
When the Devil on the left arrived, I preferred the darker face paint, being a slightly earlier version. The trident fixed as a tail rather than carrying it as these later versions do (some books have errors and suggest the trident has fallen off if the puppet carries it) I even took photos to sell the hairy one and put the one on the left in his place in the cabinet........ but, hairy Devil was missed and so the Devil on the left found his way to the shop. I can understand how collectors find it difficult to let go of their puppets. I only have a few and don't collect myself but I just couldn't let the fella go.
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.
