ABOUT AMERICAN BEAUTY DOLLS AND VINTAGE COSTUME JEWELRY

American Beauty Dolls is also pleased to offer Vintage Costume Jewelry specializing in Elegant Quality Designer Signed pieces that add sparkle to your life. I offer high quality vintage fashion costume jewelry from the 1930's - 1980's from jewelry makers and designers including Trifari, Weiss, Boucher, Kramer, Hobe, Hollycraft, Eisenberg, Vendome, Delizza & Elster aka Juliana, Florenza, Vendome, Hattie Carnegie, Lisner, Sarah Coventry, Danecraft, early plastics, modernist, sterling as well as unsigned beauties, rhinestone jewelry, brooches, pins, bracelets, necklaces, parures, and sets. I also love vintage and antique Native American Tribal and Mexican sterling silver jewelry. Each piece is a work of art in itself.

Who does not love a doll or teddy!! Whether they evoke warm childhood memories or tons of fun with your friends in play, dolls captivate our imagination! That sure is the case with me. Dolls are wonderful personal treasures that pull at our hearts- the faces, clothing, and the expressions. And what you did not get as a child (but wanted so desperately), you can now own as an adult. And my motto is -You can never have enough dolls- Buy one today!

As a lucky full time antiques dealer (since 1989) who specializes in dolls, I am out searching for them every day. My interests include a wide variety so I sell dolls of all periods including antique, vintage and modern collectible including Barbie. I buy what I would love to own myself. I also take more pictures than what is allowed, so if you need more detail etc., please do not hesitate to send me an email. I love dolls and they are all beautiful to me, so I see their beauty and charm before I see any of their faults.

I am dedicated to providing you the buyer/collector with QUALITY dolls and accessories to select from. I know you are serious in your acquisitions for your collection and are willing to spend hours in front of your computer, so I believe it is my responsibility to provide you with some items that are worthy of your time and effort. Please do enjoy your shopping experience at American Beauty Dolls.

Please note that I am a member of UFDC- United Federation of Doll Clubs. I do many doll shows in the Northeast throughout the year and I am often on the road searching for wonderful dolls. If you send an email asking a question or to make a purchase, I will respond as quickly as possible upon my return. If for some reason you cannot reach me via email, please call. I would love to hear from you.

I LOVE the search so I never know what I am going to find next. Please keep checking my listings often to see what American Beauties I have found.

TESTIMONIALS:

"My Muffie doll did arrive today, and she is definitely a "CUTIE"! I am very pleased with her. She is just as you described her. And if I had read more carefully, I should have been able to determine her arrival without asking you. Your service was excellent. Thank you so much."

I received my order today! Thanks it;s all very nice. : )
I will be sure to be a return shopper!
Have a lovely day

Thank you very much for sending beautiful Ginnette to me so quickly. My goodness, I love her very much. You always have the most wonderful dolls in your shop and I love all of the ones you've sent to me through the years. Take good care and I hope you will have a pleasant day today and that everyone will be especially kind to you.

I have just received both pieces and I am delighted with them.
Thank you. Excellent service. Very pleased.


Hi Nancy,
I've received my gorgeous demi and I am delighted with it. Talk about
sparkle! And the condition is incredible; looks as though it has never been
worn. I've been buying jewelry over the internet for many years, but I have never received a purchase so well-packed! If you need a reference for a very
satisfied customer, please feel free to use my name.
Best,
Sheree

delivery.
I love him.


Bonjour Nancy!
I just received the Sunny Pastels outfit this afternoon.

Hi Nancy -
I just received the Nancy Ann Storybook boxed outfit.
It's beautiful! I could not be more pleased. This is -- in my humble
opinion -- such a rare find, that I can't believe I will be able to show
if off when I do a program on NASB dolls for my local doll club (in
July... I like to start prepping early).
Thanks a million. It's exactly as great as you described it to be.
