Vintage Canfolk Artist Visits Galena, IL

Time to meet the artist of the Canfolk! Her name is Kristen Sunby. She creates the most loveable little characters and repurposes vintage spice tins at the same time.
If you were in the shop Saturday you may have seen her.
Posted are some of my very favorites. You remember Little LuLu? How about Popeye and Olive Oil, Scrooge and the Grinch?  Since this is Galena, I had her make a General Ulysees Grant. I have him sitting with a picture of my Father-in-law who won the Grant look-a-like contest in 1963.
If you look at these close you will see all the detail she puts in the faces. She is an amazing artist and I am so lucky to be the only one in Galena to sell these. (Kristen also has an etsy store. Check it out)
These are perfect for that person on your Christmas list who already has everything. If you see one you like, don't wait too long as they do go fast.
