HELP NEEDED PLEASE.
Does anyone know which country these children's wooden clogs are from? 
Any help would be most appreciated.
They do not look "Dutch" to me, with the strap, but I may be wrong.
I am thinking maybe Brittany or Denmark?

I am still getting used to it, so please be patient.

When you go to "Inventory" you will now be able to put a doll and its' Code No. into the search box and it will bring that doll up, so it should be a lot quicker for you!  (If you don't add the Code No. it will bring up all the listed dolls for that country).
