A Primitive Place Collector Series Doll

Meet Frieda
the 32nd Doll in Our Collector Series

Frieda loves summer! She decorates her porch with lots of red, white and blue themed pots, benches and of course, a wonderful old flag! She loves making strawberry pie and blueberry cobbler. She was just about to start making some for the annual village picnic when she heard the mail truck pull up. Oh my! Her new A Primitive Place magazine has arrived! Oh well! A tall glass of peach tea and a rocking chair sounds good on this sunny afternoon. She will get lots of ideas to decorate her cabin and maybe some new recipes!

  Freida stands about 10 inches tall. She wears a prairie bonnet and has a red apron over her star covered tattered dress. She carries her old flag where ever she goes!

  Order your very own Freida and show your true colors! And, don’t forget your magazine subscription! (sold separately) $34.95 includes travel. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
