Dolls are a part of our history and our story as human beings and they need to be preserved

“I started about 45 years ago collecting dolls for my daughter and then started collecting dolls for myself. That led to producing porcelain reproduction dolls to raise money to buy antique dolls. At that time, I was raising three children. From there I started repairing dolls and doing a lot of research into the history of dolls. I do appraisals to let people know that dolls have value and if they can’t take care of them, put them in someone else’s hands. Dolls are a part of our history and our story as human beings and they need to be preserved. Antique dolls will show you the styles of a generation–the hairstyles and the clothing and what is popular during that time. It is vital to our story as human beings to recognize that. I like history, where we came from and how we evolved. I live in a home built in 1904, and it is loaded with antiques and antique dolls. My collection dates to the late 1800’s, and I have no idea how many dolls I have. I started collecting teddy bears for my son and now have over 400 bears. I am very lucky hat my husband also likes dolls.”
