Nostalgic Folk Art was born in 2004. I came up with Nostalgic Folk Art name for my paper mache figures because I love the older things that remind me of my childhood and of innocent times. They are figures of folks both childish and impish and I love vintage folk art so putting nostalgic with folk art was/is a perfect and fitting name for my lil figures and business.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

And when your done visiting here, I'd love for you to check out my work on my etsy shop,

The Best to you always!

Had a Yard Sale yesterday

and still tired, but it was so much fun! My neighbor MJ and Marion, had a table of their goodies set up too, my neighbor Iris across the street was set up and Helen and Keith put a table up in her drive way. so it was four homes in 2 drive ways. lots of junk and good stuff we were all just tired of.
Here are some pictures of the first hour of the sale.

setting up and MJ heads to Iris's home to check out her goodies. MJ and I bought from each other giggle

ignore the cracks in my driveway but this is the final set up before the crowds.

I wasnt kidding when i said we had junk but you know what they say about one man's junk is another's treasure. the metal vintage ironing board is amazing tho. i kept it.

lots of architectual items we never got around to using in our home

 MJ's table

we had a steady stream of people and alot of sales, but we really marked things cheaply, except the mixing bowls, they were priced nicely

what didnt sell we boxed up to Family Renew and kept a few things for next years purge!


  1. A sunny, happy day for a garage sale. Hurray! BTW: I miss seeing your clever whimsical art pieces on TDIPT.

    Happy Thanksgiving Carol!


  2. Ditto and thank you sweetie! have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!


My First Written Review/Kinda like your first dollar, I treasure this dearly

"Carol Roll is a relative new-comer, creating folk art for four years, now. Her paper mache figures reflect significant talent. At first glance, her angels, people, mermaids, and animals may appear cute and dear. At closer look, they are sophisticated, with detailed, expressive faces, each unique. Roll's work is anything but mass produced. It's the real deal. "
