Grandma Sally's Profile

You will find that adults will find these little finger puppets as fascinating as children do. You can make them a very entertaining educational tool that children respond to very quickly. They will also occupy a child's interest for hours. The make believe world of children is taken to new levels with an assortment of these little finger puppets.

In Addition, my husband of 55 years owned a specialty jewelry and leather goods store, and created handmade jewelry pieces which he sold to specialty boutique stores around the world. Since he retired, he has treated it more as a hobby and offers some of his unique creations from ideas he picked up in our travels throughout the world. He offers them at a considerably reduced price than you would find in retail specialty stores.
