About UsMost important, all of the clothing items come from a non-smoking home and have been professionally dry cleaned by a vintage dry cleaner. They have been carefully inspected, and all flaws are noted. These are vintage items and as such, often have small flaws. If there are any open seams, or tears; they have been repaired by a professional restorationist. All clothing items will come to you "ready to wear." You should never have the need to clean or repair them.
Through my experience in antique dolls, as well as vintage clothing - I have identified the clothing item according to the era, as well as what size and type of doll that clothing is associated with and/or appropriate for. Details such as the type of fabric, buttons, and the textile pattern will be noted if known. Measurements have been taken via the length, and width. Measurements are taken while the garment is flat; and if it is a width, it will be doubled. Measurements are approximate.
All clothing will come to you with an acid free colored background and wrapped in acid free plastic specially designed for antiques, suitable for gifting or storing. Clothing has been pressed, but a few wrinkles may still be present due to folding and shipment.
I specialize in mint and mint in box dolls, and have studied doll history, dolls, and doll clothing for over twenty years. One of the most important features of doll collecting, is finding those original clothes and accessories that are a part of your doll's history. As dolls have changed over the centuries, so have the clothing associated with that doll. Just as you would not want to put a modern outfit with velcro on an old Shirley Temple doll from the 1930s, you would also probably not put a turn-of-the century dress on a modern artist doll.
I had a doll clothing company for many years, and have studied trends in doll making for a long time. I understand fabrics, trims, and can identify which company made a particular outfit based on style, fabrics, trims, and closures. I have also written numerous articles about how to identify one factory dress from another, as well as how to properly care for the old fabrics.
You can be confident in what you are purchasing, because I have a lot of experience in studying doll clothes. All clothes are accessed carefully, and the items will be well defined and researched properly. I also keep prices reasonable, I have seen these original items at astronomical prices and you won't find that here. I work hard to keep the prices affordable.
My passion is writing, and I have been a contributor to many of the doll publications, and written articles on various aspects of doll collecting. It is rewarding to share the knowledge that I have learned with doll and toy enthusiasts. Dolls and toys evoke a special feeling, and I have found it to be a fun and rewarding hobby.
I believe that collecting should be fun but also a worthy investment - so please enjoy the items that I have offered for you, and I hope you find something to enjoy for years to come!
