Lil’ Locals – “Everyone Knows A Little Local”

Lil’ Locals are caricatures/miniatures of people you know, or have met sometime in your life. They live locally, down the street, next-door, the neighborhoods you drive through or maybe in your own home, a relative or family member, or they may be you or your best friend. Each one has his/her own distinct personality, and collectors know each one by name.
