About Us
I collect German bisque bathing beauties and related naughty novelties and my personal collection now exceeds 400 pieces! I wrote "Naughties, Nudies, and Bathing Beauties," the first reference book to cover bathing beauties and their sultry sisters, and my second book, "Bawdy Bisques and Naughty Novelties: German Bathing Beauties and Their Risque Kin," was published 2005 by Schiffer Publishing. I also collect antique dolls, especially all-bisque dolls. I have written a number of articles for antiques publications and have also been a speaker for the United Federal of Doll Clubs. I have a blog where I regularly post pictures of ladies and other items from my collection. Please stop by for a visit!

I am a collector and not a full-time dealer. Like many collectors, I am constantly searching estate sales, flea markets, and auctions for treasures to add to my personal collection. Many of the items in my store are pieces I am culling from my personal collection or intriguing items I came across and just could not pass up. I always have trouble passing up any antique that is weird, wonderful, or just too tempting a bargain to pass by! But I have come to realize I cannot collect every thing and that some of my treasures must be offered to others.
