Ruby Lane Dolls September Newsletter September 2017



Ruby Lane is the world's largest curated website of antique and vintage dolls, dollhouses, and accessories. It is home to the experts who bring you the dolls that you have always dreamed of owning and is a gathering place for the collectors who buy them. Ruby Lane is the 'place' where we can gather in friendship to celebrate the art of doll collecting. So, it makes sense that Ruby Lane's new Dolls Lane logo above now reads, "The Doll World's Home." Please pull up a chair and shop This Week's Arrivals on the Dolls Lane.




RUBY LANE HEADS TO SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS FOR THE ROSE PERCY PROJECT

Ruby Lane is a sponsor of the Rose Percy Project event that will be held in Springfield, Illinois, September 8th and 9th. Ruby Lane's sponsorship helps to ensure the success of the day, and helps make donations possible to a variety of veterans charities.

Rose Percy served admirably, raising funds for the American Red Cross, first during its Sanitary Commission (Civil War) period, and again through World War I, when her activities helped the Red Cross acquire much-needed ambulances before American involvement in the War. Rose was then displayed at the American Red Cross headquarters, where she served for over 80 years with utmost grace as the mascot for the Junior Red Cross.

Ruby Lane will be live streaming the exciting event activities on Ruby Lane Dolls Facebook page throughout the weekend to encourage others to not only join in the fun of doll collecting but to bring awareness to the purpose of the fundraising event. Read more about the Rose Percy Project. We hope to see you not only in person at the event but in the popular 'Dolly Cam' on Facebook.

TOP 9 DOLL CATEGORIES TO COLLECT RIGHT NOW

The doll categories below are unusual and worthy of being in any collection. Some have tapped the interest of those who worship popular art and culture, like the Kokeshi dolls of Japan. Others, like the dolls of artist R. John Wright, are celebrating a distinguished provenance, in his case, 40 years of doll making! Others, like the 1950's Effanbee dolls, are "sleepers;" they are good quality dolls, often with gorgeous clothing, that are selling at bargain prices. Here is our list of top 9 categories of dolls and accessories that teach history and look great on a collector's shelf.
