Attention! - - -

A rare thing is available.

A genuine original handmade sculpture, created by our friend, the late Dustin Poche' has come on the market for sale.  It is the much-coveted rendition of famous film star of yesteryear, the saucy siren herself, Mae West. 

In Dustin's typical style, no expense has been spared in her creation, from the vintage textiles of her elaborate gown, to her jewelry and feathers in her hair. Mae stands at just over two feet high (2'x2" to be exact).

This is a one of a kind piece, one that you will not find in stores, and will likely go up in value over the years. She is signed and dated by Dustin on the pedestal she stands on.

The seller is a family member who is more than happy to negotiate the price. For more photos, or to see it in real time via Facetime, please contact Kelly Dolezal at the phone number listed here.

Remember, we are paying tribute to Dustin's genius talent in the Fall 2023 issue of Autumn Brilliance, which is available the middle of this month (September 2023).

Are you ready? ...

    As the world turns, the season begins to dip down into our favorite time of the entire year. 

    A time that is filled with cheer and good fun, as sweet as a big mouthful of Halloween candy on a cool starry autumn night.

    And, with that promise of autumn soon to arrive, it brings surprises to all those who have been patiently awaiting its return.
