Jean Sampson has moved to Hawaii to be with her family.  She spent decades collecting, researching and cataloging her finds.  A frequent bidder at auctions, she was well known to dealers and other collectors for over 50 years. If she found something interesting, she collected it.  This was all before the internet.  She is a voracious reader and found information about everything in journals, magazines and books, as well as talking to experts.  

In addition, to collecting, she grew to love Bears and Dolls. She made one of a kind bears and sold them under her trade name: "Sammy's Bears".  Examples of her work are also for sale.

The 20" Big, Blue Box on the property is full of furniture.  We had to put things in there to make room to display her smalls.
