#429 Sister Folk Nativity

Acquired 2005

This nativity line is exclusively from Abbey Press, although Sister Folk and Friar Folk pieces are available in many collectors' gift shops. The Friar Folk delightful priest and the sweet Sister are fun and whimsical. Each piece is a Maureen Carlson design and is rendered in resin and then painted. Sister Folk and Friar Folk pieces were first released in 1993, but this exclusive set was released through Abbey Press this year, 2005. I also found a close out of some of the Friar Folk pieces, and the piece entitled ‘Hanging Star', looked appropriate to add to the nativity to create this three-piece set. The close-out purchase price for the ‘Hanging Star' was $5.98. Sister Folk and Friar Folk were purchased at $9.95 each, in November 2005.
