Meet Dolores. She's a locally, handmade, upcycled kinda gal made by our friends at bebito plush (who got their start right across the street from our shop)!
A introduction to Dolores from her maker:
"Dolores is a shy librarian with a friendly smile. She has starred as the heroine in numerous epic dramas of her own imagination, and she has also been a supporting actress too many times to remember. She is always cheerful though her name actually means "pains." She has long been familiar with the glorious irony of life. Dolores only likes comfortable shoes or slippers and she has sooo many sweaters, enough to wear a different one every day.
Dolores is always made of a mix of re-purposed or "upcycled" fabric (usually fantastic sweaters!) and new felt and/or vinyl. She is always stuffed with new polyester polyfill and usually measures somewhere between 14-17 cm (5.5 to 6.5 in) Her adorable shape varies in pudginess from day to day. She does love the lasagna.
Each Dolores comes with a descriptive tag describing the charming aspects of her personality, as well as care instructions.
