Get Your Own Prairie Collectible from "Nellie Oleson"


Alison Arngrim, who played "Nellie Oleson" in the long-running television series "Little House on the Prairie", attended the Little House on the Prairie musical at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis this summer to see her friend Melissa Gilbert (tv's Laura) star as Ma on stage.

Now she offers her souvenirs from the musical to the highest bidder as a fundraiser for Protect, an association Arngrim strongly supports, which is dedicated to protecting children from harm.

Click here to view and/or bid on the items, which include the program, a bar of prairie soap, and a poster from the musical autographed by the main actors (Steve Blanchard, Pa; Melissa Gilbert, Ma; Kara Lindsay, Laura; Jenn Gambatese, Mary; Kevin Massey, Almanzo; and Sara Jean Ford, Nellie). If the bidding goes above $150, Alison will even include a hand-signed letter to prove the origin of the items, certainly increasing their value as a collector's piece.

What a terrific opportunity to acquire a great Prairie collectible and help children at the same time!

(You need not worry that the auction is a scam; the information and link to the auction came directly from Alison herself!)
