When we returned to Puerto Vallarta in December 2014, we were active in several markets; the Thursday night market at Marina Vallarta, the Friday market in the Marsol Hotel lobby, the Saturday market at Three Hens and a Rooster and the Sunday market at La Cruz de Juanacaxtle. In La Cruz, we hung the dolls around a white canopy and sold many. I met a young girl, Katya, who was a kindred spirit and doll maker. She made me a female sorceress doll an amazing work of art.
A special "Thank you" to all the wonderful fabri-holics and material connisseurs who donate their disgarded collections of fabrics or supply Original Friends Dolls with enough fabulous materials to create other beautifully creative handmade items.
We continue to enjoy bi-weekly visits to the ladies reclusorio at Puente Grande.
