Her New Best Friend

Her name was Maggie and she was your very best friend.  Maggie and you were inseparable in only the way best friends can be.  You did everything together from that long road trip with the family to see your grandmother in Bakersfield to that scary afternoon when you had to get stitches on your finger in the emergency room. All was magical until that one terrible day, after spending the afternoon in the zoo she disappeared and was lost.  Your most favorite doll – the one your mother made for you out of the blanket you used to sleep with – was missing amidst the lions and tigers and bears.  Oh my!

Eventually you got over it, but you never forgot Maggie. Years later, you became a mother and wanted to get your little girl her own special “Maggie.”  In your heart, you knew Maggie would be a difficult act to follow but you were proven wrong when you happened upon our gorgeous collection of handmade Jess Brown dolls.

Here was Maggie reincarnated, only better.  Each Jess Brown doll is lovingly crafted and put together using amazing antique fabric remnants, trims and buttons — an example of recycling and repurposing at its most beautiful.  The doll features a quirky smirk inviting your child to play and enter a world of imagination and special times shared with their new best friend.

So Maggie, you’ll always be fondly remembered but there’s a new doll in town.  Unique and special, just like her new best friend.
