I posted this notice on the “African American Kids and Friends” Facebook page and shared it to the Carol’s Carousel Creations page and several Ceramic Network pages. However, I know that some of you do not have Facebook so am sharing it again here. It is in reference to the Etsy store — several of our students have requested some white figures, especially in the sports line, so we ordered them and added “and Friends” to the store name and the Facebook page name.

Since the name change on this page to include “friends” we have ordered Clay Magic molds for a number of Caucasian figures. Yesterday I added several more posts of figures we already have in the studio:
** Caucasian Dolls
** Rosie, Dottie & Friends
** Umbrella Kids & More
** Alberta 5″ Caucasian Figures
** White Young Sports Players because there were too many to include with the African American kids.

Wherever possible, white and black figures are included in the same category:
** Man & Woman leisure
** Child Bride & Groom
** Old Man & Old Woman

I have posted only one picture from each Etsy post. They may have up to ten figures in the same post if they are related. So check it out AfAmKidsnFriends.

Then I realized everything I posted was the white folks so I addedd this note in a comment

Sorry, it looks like we don’t have African-American molds. In fact we have over a hundred at this point in time and are adding more.
