When space for the dolls became really constricted and they had taken over several rooms, closets etc in the house, I decided it was time to part with some. I also realized since my tastes had changed it was o.k. to find new homes for my dolls. So after the millennium, I obtained a resale license and started doing doll shows.
I love the shows and enjoy the customers and helping them find dolls that fit their budget and are the best quality possible. The fact that I have many repeat customers is satisfying to me. I also have several wonderful friends among the dealers both locally and across the U.S. who I can recommend.
So while there is no doubt I am a much more avid collector than dealer, I also look for items that I know would appeal to my customers. I have bought parts of collections, entire collections and offer opportunities for consignment to have a nice choice of antique, vintage and modern dolls.
