Dolls for Tots

Eveline Popp, the Doll Lady of Venice, is conducting dollmaking workshops with children Sunday afternoons in Venice on Rose Avenue and the beach.

Sweet Eveline, a 40-year resident of Venice and proud RV owner, well-known in art galleries and kitschy stores for her catdoll creations, puppets, and marionettes, is supplying all the crafts needed to make cute handpuppets with kids ages 4-7. The kids she’s been working with feel especially sad for the children who’ve lost their beloved toys in the recent home fires throughout southern California. Anyone knowing a little one in need of holiday cheer in the form of a lovingly handmade doll may write Eveline c/o Beachhead P.O. Box 2, Venice 90294.
