On September 16th, in the year of our Lord 2000, a self-described Art Star and Elf called Reverend Jen opened the world's only Lower East Side Troll Museum in her tiny, rent-stabilized tenement apartment. Rev’s goal was simple: educate, enlighten and amuse others by showcasing her rad collection of Troll Dolls. People came from far and wide and the "tiny museum that could" gained international notoriety. It was the subject of a documentary on Japan's NHK TV, was featured on the WB's evening news, the Smithsonian Channel and in many magazines and newspapers. Asking a mere pittance of a $3,000 suggested donation, Reverend Jen was able to see her museum flourish and grow for almost 16 years, until the barely employable Elf was unable to pay the rent and thus evicted.
