  Sarah has been on her front porch, her favorite place to sit in summer. She hears the band. Oh! They will be coming by soon! She lives in the village and can watch parades right from her rocking chair. She loves this time of year! She was eating a juicy watermelon, but quickly put it down on the stump table when Hank the mailman brought her favorite magazine! She cant wait to read it and get some ideas to decorate her primitive home!

  You can order Sarah ( 9" tall) wearing a cotton dress (in your choice of color) and an aged bonnet and apron. She is reading her very own magazine and comes complete with her stump table and watermelon!
