Holly adds: I have actually had a shop on Etsy since 2008, but I have never listed anything ;o(. It is time to change that. I have started to make charm bracelets using vintage (and new) items that I have collected over the years. Each one is unique. So, in the next few weeks I will be adding some items to my Etsy shop-hollymaren’s EPHEMERA ETCETERA. I will also be adding vintage jewelry and fun items for helping you create your own special art work.
I hope you will  check it out (give me a few days)-thank you!


“Etsy is the world’s handmade marketplace.”

“Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.”

You can find just about anything here! Beautiful, funky, unique, one-of-a -kind, gorgeous items abound. I have included some pictures below of sample products picked at random.





Apparently this is no longer in business. If you are lucky enough to have a doll made by Virginia than you now have a collector’s item!
Holly adds: Most all of the dolls today are made in China. These are the exception.

Virginia’s Very Own –2011 Doll Index


“Virginia’s brother, Charlie, pours vinyl into molds; each sculpted by Virginia herself.  They are melted to the mold and then cooled.  Virginia paints each doll’s face herself, with diluted automotive paint that’s used for vinyl interiors, to give them a life-like appearance.  Each of the doll’s eyes is put on by hand; their bodies are stuffed and limbs assembled.  Even the doll’s clothes are cut and sewn by hand.”
