Welcome to Episode #161. We just got back from ARIPEX and discuss (in my opinion) one of the best stamp shows in the country. While there we had the chance to speak with a few people including a Hopi Kachina Doll maker which – while not actually about stamps, I left in because he was so interesting and his work was so nice.
While listening to him you will hear a scratching sort of sound in the podcast….. That is because he was actually carving one of his Kachina Dolls while we were talking.
As always – Go on Facebook to see the covers and Kachina Dolls we are discussing.
