About Mama Jo's House of Dolls
Our Service PledgeMy mission is to find good homes for my mother's dolls at a fair price. I respond to all questions and orders as quickly as possible. If you commit to purchasing an item and change your mind, or need more time to pay for it, please let me know within 48 hours or it will be returned to the shop for sale. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
About UsHello. I'm Jo Maeder, "Mama Jo's" daughter. Though I've been a UFDC member for decades, and descend from doll makers and costumers, I was a "lapsed" doll lover. When I moved, with great trepidation, to North Carolina from New York City to care for Mama Jo and her enormous doll collection at the end of her life, we (and the dolls) had been estranged for over 30 years.
I fell madly in love with my mother and her dolls. And the South.
You can read about that magical experience in my memoir WHEN I MARRIED MY MOTHER. The dolls have a starring role. So you'll be acquiring a doll that has this story and perhaps one of its very own. They were featured in a New York Times essay on May 9, 2013: "The 700-Doll Question." There's a short film on YouTube titled "The Doll Dilemma." As much as I love these dolls, there are too many for me to love for the rest of my life. I'm looking for good, loving forever homes for them. I hope you see one that speaks to you in a special way.
Every doll has been loved and admired (most of them rarely handled) in a smoke/odor free environment and comes with provenance: a dated, descriptive Certificate of Authenticity stating that it's from Mama Jo's House of Dolls. Some have additional proof. Like a box of Cracker Jacks, each doll will have a little extra surprise thrown in.
My brother Arthur is selling some of our mother's dolls, and the dolls of others, on eBay. Click on Our Favorite Links on the right to find a link to his store. Thank you for looking. Not everything has been listed so please ask if you're searching for something in particular and don't see it.
