For all you Hunger Games fans out there you might be surprised to know that coal mining camps are real. Many of our elders here in KY such as these 3 sisters, Helen, Glenna and Peggy grew up in these mining camps.
Several years ago Helen had an idea to make some dolls that represented the children from the mining camp they grew up in. She told her sisters about her idea and they all worked together to start their own doll making company. It was then that the Coal Camp Kids were born.
These sisters were very nice to show me around their workshop and talk to me about their dolls. Each doll is handmade and unique. I was honestly blown away at the detail and work that went into each one of them. Coal camp kids are definitely rich with Kentucky history.
