This place is so friendly. I will tell you what happened to us.
We went to the Tobacco Farm Museum and while there, we saw some beautiful husk dolls behind a case. My mother (who was not with us) loves (not likes but LOVES) hand-made dolls, so I asked how much the dolls were. The nice lady said they were not for sale but that they were part of the work their class that week was working on in the museum education center. So we nodded and were a bit disappointed. We went on with the tour and afterwards went into the gift shop. Meanwhile, while we had been on the tour, the husk doll class had come in and were working on the dolls. The nice lady walked up to us and handed us a finished doll and told me to take it to my mom. (one of the people in the class had just finished and was making it available to me). I asked "how much" and she said "yours and with our blessings". We nodded and said our thanks.
On our way out, we left a bit of paper money in the donation jar they have to help supplement the cost of the classes and museum.
When we got home and gave the doll to my mom, she was delighted and sent a nice thankyou to the nice lady in Kenly. We will be sure to stop in and see her the next time we are down that way.
