My brother Arthur is selling some of Mama Jo's dolls on eBay as well as other dolls. This link will lead you to all of the dolls he's selling. Mama Jo dolls are indicated in their title. They are not listed on Ruby Lane at this time.
Meet my impossible-not-to-love Mama Jo. Here's what she had to say about why she collected so many dolls and how she felt about them in 2003, three years before she made her heavenly ascent. You can see why I want them to "stay together" in spirit. It's my hope that when you purchase a Mama Jo doll you feel like you're part of a big extended family.
Please search for "Jo Maeder" or "700 dolls" to find an essay I wrote about how I came to be selling my mother's dolls on Ruby Lane. There's also a slide show of me and my mother as children with our dolls. And a short video is embedded in the essay where I ask Mama Jo how she feels about the dolls. Click on the words in blue.
