Unadilla Woman Brings Reborns to Bleckley Show | Arts & Culture
Virginia Bailey had her arms full of babies Saturday, October 6, at the Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Cary's third annual mission mart. One was crying and the other was quiet, resting in the comfort of Mrs. Virginia's arms.
The Unadilla resident wasn't a stranger to Mt. Calvary's Mission Mart – it was her second year to bring her crafts – homemade jewelry “made out of recycled stuff.”
Retired from the Crisp County school system, Mrs. Virginia had been doing arts and crafts for awhile– but the babies were new.
Lifelike, and a little odd to look at, the babies, called, 'Reborns,' are not real. Even though each intricate detail and the well-crafted facial impressions cause people to look twice, sometimes three times before accepting the fact that they are just dolls.
Mrs. Virginia said, “People have different reactions to them … some people think they are great, others won't even look at them because they are so real-looking.”
