I have collected dolls for nearly 3o yrs . My Mentor has been a well known doll expert . I have enjoyed doing work at Doll Museum and doll hospital over a 25 yr spanI have collected dolls for nearly 3o yrs . My Mentor has been a well known doll expert . I have enjoyed doing work at Doll Museum and doll hospital over a 25 yr span . I am past member of UFDC and a past Member of Dewees Cochran Foundation . My current passion is for mannequin dolls/ Under 30 " . I have collected French Fashions, China's, bisque, 50's dolls and others through the years . I have published a few articles on Dolls in past . Love sharing knowledge and dolls with others . We never quit learning or seeing something new . Myself and My Husband had a large booth at an Antique shop for many yrs . We had all kinds of antiques and collectibles and I guess I have a vast interest in all types of Antiques ect we also had vintage toys of all sorts . I just narrowed down to what I love and that is dolls . He loves Glassware and had alot of it but I was always afraid I would break it so only kept a very few pieces . And of Coarse I have to add we have a large Elvis collection :-) I enjoy helping to identify dolls please let me add that when I say it is newer it is from 80's to present and not all dolls are real valuable nor can you tell age by clothes ect . They maybe yellowed but more likely from cig smoke than age . I find a lot of joy in sharing and seeing new things to learn from . I am a Junker at heart :-) I have a great passion for music all my family were musicans and I collect 45's and lps but prefer 45's . Love doo wop and the the 60's girls groups .My Email is Manikin1234@aol.com Please note all I have trouble seeing black on white text so if I mess up writing it is because I don't always see each letter and to avoid strain on my eyes you will see typo's from time to time :-( If I ID your doll please let me know you recieved reply or I never know if I typed it all for nothing it is all I ask :-) and answer questions I may have to Id it .
