Buy Local Season and 2017 Limited Edition PlushOn November 15, 2017 by fluffmonger
Today marks the start of Buy Local Season here in the Triad of North Carolina, and Falafel the Llama, Griswold the Sheep, and Baxter the Horse have returned as the faces of Triad Local First‘s Buy Local Season campaign! For the past seven years, TLF has been hosting Buy Local Season to encourage local shopping throughout the holiday season. Posters with Falafel, Griswold, and Baxter will be popping up all over the Triad to remind shoppers to support local business!
The limited edition plush for 2016’s Buy Local Season sold out quickly last year. Griswold the Sheep sold within seconds of being listed on Etsy! In order to allow people more time to purchase the limited edition plush this year, I’ll be hosting an auction for them on Facebook. The auction will begin at 8 p.m. EST on Black Friday, November 24, and will end at 8 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 29. There’s only one of each, so be sure to mark your calendar for the auction times and follow Fluffmonger on Facebook! (See bottom of post for details and auction rules.)
Falafel, Baxter, and Griswold are made with:
- hand-dyed organic cotton and hemp fabrics
- organic cotton and rPET thread
- organic cotton ribbon
- organic buckwheat hull stuffing
These particular plush items are intended as collectibles and may not be suitable for small children due to small parts with handstitched features. (For plush intended for all ages, see my Etsy shop.)
Even if you don’t live in the Triad, you can still enjoy Buy Local Season by shopping locally in your area, and you can download free wallpaper featuring Falafel, Baxter, and Griswold!

I love Flaffel the Lama and would like to purchase the book also for my grand-daughters. Can you tell me if it is too late to order for Christmas.
Hi, Toni! It’s not too late to order the book. You may want to upgrade your shipping at checkout, though. Let me know if you have other questions! https://www.etsy.com/listing/498296805/falafels-garden-eco-friendly-childrens?ref=shop_home_feat_1
