Marionette, Louis Armstrong


Marionettes. What can we say, you either love them or you don't. Around here, we love them. Every single shipment we get in, we feel, is like Christmas morning. They are all so perfectly unique and delightful. Each one really does personify the personality of the person represented. 

When we first met the maker we were enchanted by his whole schtick. He makes all his marionettes by hand. The faces, hands, feet, and accessories are paper mâché. He sources the clothing materials from old sweaters and garments from local thrift shops. Then the clothes are sew by him, on his vintage Singer sewing machine in his tiny apartment that is totally devoted to his craft.

Really just magic.

We feel so lucky to have met him and to have cultivated our working relationship with him. We love supporting small artisans!
