2017 DOLL WEEK RECAP

Last month, the Dolls Lane team hosted its second annual Doll Week, which focused on the maintenance, education, and preservation of dolls and their accessories. As part of the many activities of the week, we brought our viewers to The Grovian Doll Museum in Pacific Grove, California. While on site, we filmed 25 videos focused on furthering our goals of encouraging collecting, interaction, conservation, and new friendships within the doll community. These videos received thousands of live comments, shares, letters of appreciation, and requests for more. The full playlist of 28 videos are available for further viewing and sharing on the 'Doll Week 2017' playlists on the Ruby Lane Dolls Facebook and Ruby Lane YouTube. Please share, learn, and enjoy with Ruby Lane Dolls.

JOIN US FOR A DOLL FILLED HOLIDAY CELEBRATION

Join in the fun this December for a doll-filled Holiday Celebration December 11th - 13th, 2017. Our cameras will be back in Pacific Grove, California at The Grovian Doll Museum for a special segment of festive, educational seminars. The programming is focused on the beauty and wonder of the Holidays through a doll's eyes. We can look forward to workshops from several active collectors in the doll community, including doll costuming and wardrobes, Poulbot dolls, decorating a dollhouse for the Holidays, and how to incorporate your dolls into your own Holiday traditions. RSVP to our event on the Ruby Lane Dolls Facebook page, and get ready to deck the halls with dolls!

From all of us at Ruby Lane, we wish you all a wonderful holiday season full of family, cheer and of course, dolls and doll accessories.




SHOP OWNER SPOTLIGHT | ALAN SCOTT PATE JAPANESE DOLLS

Since 1993, Alan Scott Pate has been considered one of the world's authorities on Japanese dolls, with extensive publications and lecturing to audiences around the world. His noted galley, Alan Scott Pate Antique Japanese Dolls, is the premier source for antique Japanese dolls, with a specialization in museum-quality and important examples from the Edo Period, the Meiji Era, as well as the Taisho and Showa eras of the early 20th century. Some of his publications include Ningyo: The Art of the Japanese Doll, Japanese Dolls: The Fascinating World of Ningyo, Entertaining The Gods and Man: Japanese Dolls and the Theater, and his most recent, Art As Ambassador: The Japanese Friendship Dolls of 1927. We are thrilled that he has joined our family of shop owners on the Dolls Lane.

ON THE BLOG: STEIFF'S CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN!

Steiff and celebrations go hand in hand. Steiff treasures are great gifts for doll and Teddy fans, and nothing says "I love you" more than a little something with a button-in-ear. These happy pals from Giengen, Germany also make delightful Christmas decorative items.
