Hi, Cathy

I was doing a search for Hazel Pearson and found your website. I wondered if her business was still operating. I actually worked for her once at a dealer open house and visited Aleene's when she lived in Temple City, CA. What I am looking for is the plaster heads and hand for the figure draped 3 kings - the 3 wisemen. Can you help? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

I worked for Hazel Pearson in Rosemead, CA in 1967. I was a Sales Order Clerk and while working for Hazel Pearson Handicrafts I became "addicted" to crafts.
