Missing you!

Dear Friends,

The past few weeks have been worrisome for all of us. The advent of Covid-19 reaching our shores and affecting so many of our people reminds us of how connected we really all are. To beat this affliction all the world's peoples must be involved. Please, please listen to relevant information and do as asked. If this means isolation, do it. This will contribute to a healthier and happier world in the future.

If you are working on the front lines, thank you. Your dedication to getting and keeping us healthy and returning us to normalcy is deeply appreciated.

Ms. Peggie's Place will reopen when we are permitted. Right now we are closed by law but are working behind the scenes to be ready when the time comes to unlock our doors. Please check back here for pertinent information on the reopening. Meanwhile, we will be bringing the store to you on this page via articles on miniature crafting, tips and hints.

Most importantly, stay well. We miss you and look forward to seeing you as soon as we are able.

Cordially,

Michael Sue Nanos
Proprietor

Shed and Slobber! Happy Holidays to You!

We look forward to seeing you and showing off the delights of December! We have a miniature lot of Christmas trees, teddy bears and toys for tots.The shop has a selection of endearing dogs, cats and birds to add joy and wonderment to your holiday. As realistic or as fairy-tale as you desire, you'll find what you are looking for here.

"Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without the dog giving back," say many people during the holiday season. Now, as much as living animals are wonderful and kind, the miniature 12:1 variety will make life easier, especially during the holidays. No shedding and no slobbering!


Friendly and adorable. Take your pick!

Not for sale!
A succulent treat

Do you like bears? So do we! How about Tinkertoys, dolls, doll clothes and doll houses? We think they are pretty cool, too, and have enough to make your holiday grand.

There's a golf playing bear as well, but he wouldn't pose for the camera.


Toys for everyone








So tiny and...
...so perfect


The Tinkertoy!



Out of many, here are two.

If you believe in Santa Claus you'll find him in full gear on our Christmas shelf and with the porcelain dolls. Mrs. Claus is here, too, enjoying a cup of hot cocoa.





While you are there take a look at the nearby food showcase and decide what you would like for Christmas dinner.


Anything, everything and more.

 The store is gussied up for your shopping and looking pleasure.











So hop to it!


We hope to see you soon!
Cordially,
Michael Sue Nanos,

Gentle thanks this holiday season

Dear Friends,

As we welcome 2020 I wish all of you much happiness and good health in the new year. May your joys be bountiful, your sorrows few and your good friendships many. Please visit us! We so enjoy talking with you. Thank you for your support in the past year.

Many people we've spoken with have said what a difficult year 2019 was for them. The reasons were many; some solutions surfaced, many didn't. Please take good care of yourselves during times of trial. Eat healthful food, have that hot cocoa, cuddle up with a furry blanket and read that book you've been meaning to start for so long. Care about yourself and those you love.

Before we know it, 2020 will establish itself, all starched and new and promising great things. May your wishes be granted!

Cordially,

Dolls! Dolls! Dolls!

Ms. Peggie's Place has dolls, lots and lots of beautifully finished creations to add dazzle and sparkle to your project.You'll find looking at their intricate details fascinating as well as fun. There are so many dolls that it's impossible to picture them all here. You'll just have to come in and take a look! Over the next few months we will continue to show off this beautiful collection in the context of holidays, seasons, etc.

This lady seems to have a lot to say!
It's a good thing her friend has come along to chat with her.
Notice the bustle and the fancy hairstyle.



An 1890s lady, complete with flowers in her hat.
Pure elegance.

One of the fanciest ladies around!
Baubles, bangles and beads contribute to the beauty of many of these figurines. Facial expressions make them come to life. Not all are joyous.
Notice the facial scarring.





Mother and baby.


One of the most glamorous of all.






Here's another small sample of the dolls and where they hang out.


We'll look forward to seeing you soon!

Cordially,
