Mappy Oakley lives in a charming little cottage on the outskirts of Cooperstown, NY.  She enjoys gardening, watching the visiting birds, playing with her grandchildren, making puppets and writing stories.  Originally from Boston, MA, she lived a third of her life on the west coast of Canada, where her imagination was sparked by the pebble beaches, the moss covered landscape, and the dew drop covered trees.

Most Saturdays from Spring through the Christmas season, you can find the Elwen puppets for sale at the Cooperstown Farmers Market selling puppets and making friends.

Upcoming Event!!!    I will be at the Holliston Historical Society craft fair on Sept. 24th. Hours are 10 to 4 at 547 Washington St. in Holliston, Massachusetts. If you are around, come see all the new stuff!

  1. Hi Mappy : your name popped up in my memory lately so I decided to Google you. Love your puppets!
    Somehow we met years ago and not sure if it wasn’t in the Rockies when we lived in Field BC and perhaps it was in Vancouver? I’ll enter my name below and see if you can shed some light on this. Cheers!

    1. I lived in Qualicum Bay for 20 years. Maybe that is where we met. I taught birth classes for years there. I am not remembering you but we must have met at some point.
