My stuff is NOT FOR SALE, and if it were, this is not the place to do it. I enjoy many collections: dolls, hand fans, vintage jewelry, coca-cola, Avon bottles, enamelware, toys, and whatever catches my eye and wants to come home with me...

  13. I see in the first pic parts of four rosaries. The one with the Virgin Mary center looks like it would have been made with pressed rose petal beads (I have on like that somewhere). These probably turn...
  14. Lovely find. The splinter can be from anything ranging from crosses in the prayer rooms or utensils used by any of the hundreds of saints, to a piee of wood from the Holy Land. That by itself is ...
  15. I agree with Marty, the face on a doll like this would have been of much better craftmanship than it shows now. He is one cute little boy, though! Great find!
  16. Hi Mac!!! I live in Alicante, on the Mediterranean coast. Not really into Marins. I prefer Famosa and all the 50s-70s dolls from the towns of Onil and Ibi. But really, what I collect are the dolls tha...
  17. Hi Marty, I redressed them....or should I say dressed them, as I got them in old children's clothes that were not original to them. So I just looked for something in their size and dressed them. I...
  18. I think they are made of plastic now...something about hazards and safety...*sigh* These are great! The hours we spent under the carport playing with jacks!

  32. Beautiful, just beautiful!! And you have the cover too!!! Thanks for sharing, youngblood!!
  33. This is why I've stopped buying from ebay. For one, they don't back the buyers anymore...they back their sellers, who are the ones that pay their fees anyways, I guess... Second reason is that as a v...
