Hemp-Farming Nun in Casual Farm Attire
Metties’ are the name of the Sisters of the Valley craft-yurt doll collection, hand-made from recycled materials. Nearly all* of the dolls were rescued from flea markets, naked and forlorn, cleaned up, given good clothes, a roof over their heads, great food, and purpose-driven lives.
We named them ‘Metties’ because they are metaphors for throw-away people. (Think World War II ‘Betties’). We know America can do a better job of taking care of our poor, and those in crisis. We use these dolls to bring awareness to the existence of throw-away people as a shame to our society and a challenge to a problem we must end. The Betties found liberation through their paid work, and so do the Metties.
*We were unable to find ‘throw-away’ dolls of color and must always purchase those new. It's the numbers. They are more rare.
There are five sisters in this collection and we are selling each sister separately.
Your purchase includes:
one pair of shoes
one sage bundle
one jar of salve
We are farming sisters, like many of the Sisters who have gone before us.
We have a magical craft yurt that you may have seen on social media. In there, we make magical Metaphor Doll dioramas and clothes and paraphernalia.
Dolls and clothes sold as shown, each comes with one bundle of sage, and one jar of salve.
Tables and bin or stacks of product shown are not included with the dolls.
We really can't vouch for the condition of the dolls under the uniforms. They were all purchased second hand, forlorn and abandoned at flea markets, and we clean them up best we can, but their hair is not that important to us because it's always under veil. These women have had hard lives. They might have stretchmarks or scars, they might have markings from some cruel tormenter. Just saying.
In rare instances, we might need to substitute certain pieces, but you will get all the things on the list. All from our craft-yurt collection.
