DIY Leather Conditioner
Today I restored this extremely cool WWII Army Air Forces B-6 bomber hat and got it listed on eBay. The recipe for the homemade, all natural polish I used to treat the leather as well as more information on the hat can be found in today's blog post. Other terrific gifts for men just listed on eBay include gold Midcentury cufflinks sets, all new in their boxes, Stetson hats, and more. Link to eBay from the Home page of this site.
American Girl Eye Tutorial
Great news! My long-awaited American Girl doll eye replacement tutorial is live! Head to the blog to find out how to do it and check back often to see my first ever American Girl doll one-of-a-kind transformation.
Through tomorrow (10/10) only, head to eBay and Etsy to save during the Atelier Mandaline Flash Sale. I refuse to call this a "Columbus Day" sale, since it's now clear Columbus didn't even come to America first and wasn't the sort of person we ought to celebrate anyway. Whatever you call it, the sale has been popular and things are flying out of the shops. If you have a specific item in mind you should jump on it before someone else! Most of my items are unique, vintage or handmade, or both, so I typically one have one of each. Speaking of one of each, I have only two LulaRoe pieces left! These are a Nicole dress and a pair of leggings in the Tall & Curvy size. Each one of these is new with tags and I have only one of each. Make an offer on Poshmark or place a bid on eBay for those (there's only one of each piece; I just sometimes run items in more than one channel at a time to maximize views. I remove it from the duplicate channel if it gets a bid or offer). You can link to all my shops from the Home Page. But hurry; since I started writing this post three more things have sold!
Amy, Before And After
Yesterday I received a large lot of dolls to repair for a client who wants to pass them on to her granddaughters. One of the dolls, Amy from Little Women, had a bad eye which I thought I would have to replace. Instead, I stumbled on a quick new repair technique! You can read all about it in today's blog post.
If you would like to send a doll to my doll hospital please fill out a repair request and I will send you an estimate.
Today's The Day!
As promised, free returns begin today from Atelier Mandaline eBay! When you order from me I will pay for the shipping both ways. Today I also added a new option for exchanges. You may exchange an item for that of your choice, as long as the exchange is the same or lower price. Please review the return rules. Your item will arrive with either a manufacturer's tag or a pink tag attached. The tag must still be attached in order for the a refund to be issued if the item is returned. I hope to see you on eBay!
