I've known Michel over the years from telephone calls asking for technical advice regarding doll making. I guess you could say I was an advisor/ friend. We met once at a doll convention for 10 minutes. When he sent me his doll I congratulated him on his accomplishment and posted a congratulations on my FaceBook page. He said sales were slow and I suggested he send one to you for review. That's pretty much it. I know nothing about his business, just that I think Flavia charming. I hope this helps.mel
While we're on the subject of Mel, I snatched this gorgeous portrait of him from his Facebook album. I think this is one of the best pictures of him I've ever seen.
Mel has some wonderful images of his work on his Facebook page and you ought to have a look. Click on the picture and it will take you there.
