Specialty Items

“Mood Pillows”
The story, as related in Little Women, is that when a “sausage” pillow such as this was placed upright on the couch, it meant that Jo (i.e., Louisa) was happy. But when the pillow was on its side, the observer had best beware, for Louisa was in one of her “moods.”

This pillow makes a unique and fun gift and is a top seller in our museum store. Size 8” wide, 17” high. Each with zipper for easy washing. Assorted colors. For information regarding pattern selections, please call 978-369-4118 ext. 107.  
Price: $21.95.
