There are still not tons and tons of them, so it isn't the biggest conga. Big enough that I can only see the chests, so I miss a lot of details on these amazing models. It really is an excellent mold. And even though I am not really all in with Breyer these days, and I am not an OF collector. I was pretty pleased to have my complete conga.

So that's it. I am not willing to chase down a model that I only really want because it would complete the conga (again). I was also not really willing to pay $25 each (limit 2) for the chance to get one of them. I did not want to take the gamble and then work to trade with someone to try to get the one I wanted, since I am likely to not get the Django. I have paid more than $25 for a couple of these models, but there are things that you are willing to do when you are all in that you are not willing to do when you are not. And I am not these days. I am not an OF collector.

Today is the day! It's semi-live sale day! All of the available items have been posted in previous posts. The schedule of when each items goes up for sale was posted on Wednesday. The festivities start at 3:00 pm ET, on my Facebook studio page. As a reminder, you do not have to watch the live portion to claim items. You MUST claim the items in the comments under the claim photos (the ones with the claim codes) because no claims made in the live broadcast will count. After the sale, if you have claimed any items, please message me on my STUDO page (not my personal page, and not through email) and let me know your email and the country you live in. Even if you are positive I already have this information. I need those two pieces of information for invoicing. All invoicing will be done through paypal. You do not need to have paypal to pay your invoice through paypal. Please make sure you pay the invoice, don't send me payment separately, this messes up how I do things for the sales and actually makes a lot more work for me. Please make sure your address is correct as I am not going in and changing addresses, this also makes a lot of extra work for me. Please do not find a work-around to send me friends and family payment. This is illegal and will be returned as I have no desire to be audited. There will be flat rate shipping by country, which has been heavily advertised on both Instagram and Facebook, please do not ask me for a lower shipping rate. The shipping rates for each country are posted on every single claim photo description. Please do not claim if you don't intend to pay. If something comes up, please don't wait until the last second (as in a week later) to let me know about it. I may not have any time to see questions on this post (since live sale days are usually really busy) so I hope you already asked them ahead of time! I cannot easily look at private messages on Facebook while I am doing a live broadcast, though if you have an urgent inquiry, please feel free to message me and I will try to get to it. Most important, have fun! Come "visit" me on the live if you have the time and inclination!

I did not end up having bunches of time to work on dolls for my Black Friday live sale, so I don't have tons and tons of dolls. But I do have a nice variety. I have 4 western pleasure dolls, the lady in red has black hair, the first doll in silver has red hair, the grey/silver doll has black hair, and the blue doll has brown hair.
The first navy coat hunt seat doll has brown hair, the black coat doll next to her has brown hair as well, the black coat doll next to her has blond hair, and the doll on the far right has black hair.
This hunt seat youth doll is done on the little Yvonne body, with a kid head, and brown hair. I have reinforced the body so she doesn't fall apart as easily (all dolls can fall apart if roughly handled). The rainbow western pleasure doll is also done in the little Yvonne body with a kid head, and she had blond hair. Her body has also been modified and reinforced.
|Left to right: $210, $230, $210, $210|
While I don't have a lot of options, I do have a small variety of English and western options. My doll prices are going to have to go up a small amount in January, so get the lower prices while you can. The Black Friday Live sale will be held tomorrow, November 25th at 3:00 pm ET on my studio page on Facebook.

I have been working hard to get ready for the Field of Dolls Studio Black Friday Live sale. Which will be held this Friday, November 25th, at 3:00 pm ET on my studio page on Facebook. I know people often like to pre-shop a sale, so here are all of the miniature sets that I have ready for the sale. These may be the last sets I ever make. They really are a lot of work, and not really worth the time and effort. I may still make some randomly here or there, or pieces of sets perhaps, but these very well might be the last I ever do. More items will be posted tomorrow!
|$38 each set|

I have done this post before, twice at least, since this is not my first semi-live sale. Here is the link to the original post. I thought it might be slightly confusing since it was specific to the last sale. So I copied and pasted it into a new post and will edit it to make it relevant to the upcoming sale. If something doesn't make sense please let me know. Hopefully I will have time to answer.
The order I have them posted in the catalog will be the order the photos will go up on my studio page on sale day. I will have claim codes on the photos so when the photo pops up all you have to do is comment UNDER THE PHOTO the claim code. If you are the first to claim that particular item it goes to you. No matter what your internet speed, 3:00 (or the comparable time in your time zone) is 3:00 for everyone. The photos show up at the same time for everyone. Since you will have already seen the groups and how they are laid out you will know exactly where to look in each photo so you can see the claim code (which is not easily guessable, for fairness) and then just type that into the comments.
At 3:00 next Friday, November 25th, I am going to go live on my studio page on Facebook. I will not be showing you any of the items I have for sale. At 3:05(probably) group A (which is not the group A from this post, these photos are all from my test sale, but will actually be a group of similar items in different colorways) will be posted on my studio page. You are more than welcome to watch me dance around in my room and pack bags. I am sorry to say I am much more chill during a semi-live sale. I still try to keep it fun. I still sing the alphabet and I will drink seltzer. You cannot claim items by commenting on my live video. No claims count if you say them to me. Literally the only reason to watch me do the live is to have some interaction. As of this moment (this was written on Saturday) I am not doing trivia. I don't have space in my brain to think of questions and I don't think I have any prizes. You never know if I might come up with some surprises. Including putting trivia back into the live. But to be clear, you do not actually have to WATCH me at the semi- live sale to claim things.
So let me now explain in greater detail how you claim an item. Let's say you are looking at the micro pouches in group B and you absolutely LOVE the pouch with the pink unicorns. You know that is one you want to try for and the schedule tells you group B will be posted at 3:10. So at 3:10 you are refreshing your device like a crazy person and I am hanging out in my room talking to myself and calmly drinking my seltzer. You hit refresh over and over and then the group B photo is up! You see that the pouch you want is 55 so under the photo of group B (the photo with the claim codes) you comment 55. Really, it is that easy. And if you were the first person to comment 55, you will be the one that gets the pouch. Which I will say out loud on the live portion of the sale where I am chilling and casually packing bags and not running around like a crazy person. I will also "love" your comment so you know you are in fact the first person and the winner of the item. Easy, right?
My plan is to probably have groups post about every 5 minutes. Though the blowout of miniatures will likely be every 2-3 minutes (the claim code for all the miniatures is "mine") All the groups are somewhat small so I have enough time to write on bags and sort items before the next batch comes up. I will also schedule in 5 minute breaks where no photos are going up, which will give me some time to catch up if I have gotten behind. The basic rule is the first person to claim (It may or may not be the same order on everyone's device so I am still going by what shows first on my screen) will get the item. In the first 5 minutes the group is listed you may only claim one item from the group. So let's say group A goes live at 3:05. You can only claim one of the bareback pads. When group B goes live at 3:10 (so, 5 minutes later) if there is anything unclaimed from group A you can make a second claim from that group. Doing it this way makes it more fair for everyone.
