Saturday Afternoon Reading
We already know Poppets like to read.
This Poppet is inspired by my own
childhood---years of reading on
rainy Saturday afternoons.
Dr. Seuss, Beatrix Potter,Richard Adams, then H.G. Wells, Edgar Allen Poe, H. P. Lovecraft,
Issac Aismov and on and on.
Sometimes I believe the best of my education
was had there. I'll always be grateful to my
dad, who faithfully drove me to the library
Over the years I've seen my own children in this
same position, pouring over their own books.
I'm filled with admiration and appreciation for the
authors who created them.
Saturday Afternoon Reading is an open edition Poppet, hand cast and hand painted at Strange Studios. This one is a special edition, with double dots, piping on ruff and sleeves and a beautiful glass like finish.
Poppets are made with love.

If your purchase is a gift or you have some other deadline, please let us know when you purchase! Additional arrangements might be needed and possible additional postage. We want you to get your Poppets and art on time!

Please bear in mind that many of the poppets here are 'made to order.' Please allow time for the work to be created. Most often that's no longer than five days, but we're a small studio and things happen.
We ship orders from our Etsy store on Tuesdays and Fridays. Custom items take a bit longer, depending on the item.
We will refund money if item is returned within seven days of receiving the item. Items can be sent for repair free of charge,buyer pays for shipping.
