Mice and more mice!!

This is a plea for help...

Having found Mondial Tissus, and thus a supply of felt and pipecleaners, Elizabeth's passion for creating miniature mouse figures has re-awakened with alarming consequences.

Today it reached epic proportions. The two of them (she's got me at it now!!) were out in the garden on a "photo-shoot"!!










If we don't find an outlet where she can dispose of these creatures for some small remuneration to feed her habit, then goodness knows where it will all end.

As we all know: where there's one mouse, sure as eggs is eggs, there'll be many, many more.......


So my plea is, can anyone out there suggest an outlet for these little people?? Please???

Surely there are some little craft markets going on? Or a stall at a brocante? Alternatively eBay?

They are so gorgeous. What about a cafe or somewhere similar who would be prepared to put them in the window. Diane

Our tourist office displays local crafts for sale - does Braye-sous-Faye have a tourist office, or maybe some other neighbouring village?

Sarah, Diane and Jean - thank you very much for your ideas. I'll get some samples together and work on my sales pitch!

Betcha Richelieu has a Xmas market. Book yourself a stall. You could also try selling on Etsy - kind of like Ebay, but specialising in the hand made.

Also, why not come over this way for the Christmas Market at Ferriere Larcon on the 11th of December [02 47 92 04 42] - Jean had a stall there last year... she'll fill you in on the details and what to wear [thermals!]

The WV just came up as "miesse"!!
