Help Toni Find This Vintage Elf!

By RetroRuth

Hello Readers!  I hope all of you had a fine Thanksgiving.  Dinner with all the parents went very well this year, and the only thing I forgot to make was the turkey gravy! Everything else went just perfect.  Thanks to my parents for coming early and helping me make dinner.  I could have never done it without you, Mom, or done all the dishes without you, Dad!

So, in the holiday spirit of generosity and selflessness, I hope we can all lend a hand to help Toni find a vintage elf she has been searching for.  Here is a photo Toni sent along to identify her target.

I am looking for the elf in the attached picture.  The bigger one on the left.  My mom had it when I was a kid, and it sat on top of a tall pillar that was covered with red yarn.  My mom said it was a craft kit.  I called her last year asking if I could have it and she told me that she THREW IT AWAY!  I found the elf on etsy, but alas, it was sold!  Can your readers help me find another one?

A precious holiday memory?  Thrown away!?!?!?  We feel for you, Toni.  If any readers out there have seen a this little guy, please let us know!

Also, feel free to share Thanksgiving stories in the comments!

    Wow! Toni, could you hear the collective gasp as the No Pattern Required readers read the line, “she threw it away!”? I think you’ve come to the right place though. If that elf is out there, someone will find it!

    I looked at all of the eBay elves and pixies with no luck but did find these Napco elves that have the same faces. So by chance, if it wasn’t from a kit after all, it might be Napco.

    I’ll keep the look out for you. I love a good treasure hunt challenge!

    There are a couple that have the same head in this listing, but different clothes.
