Jenny Fortin Kits

If you are a fan of Raggedy Ann and Mary Engelbreit style minis, Jenny Fortin is your lady. Below is a selection of her kits. All of these kits go for $5 each. The one-inch dwelling kits are super cute (IMHO) and go together in under an hour. Best part---no painting required. Just cut & paste. Toothpick figures come prepainted, just add bunka hair. You can email her at cim410@aol.com.
