About Beautiful Bébés Antique Dolls & Attic Finds
Our Service PledgeWe will attempt to respond to all orders within 24 hours. We do travel and exhibit, so your patience is appreciated in the event of a delay. We represent items that are antique, vintage and collectible. Items will be described as detailed as possible although issues relative to age are to be expected and understood.
About UsThank you for visiting Beautiful Bébés Attic Finds! Since 2002, Beautiful Bébés Antique Dolls has traveled around the US and abroad, buying, trading, exhibiting and selling fine dolls and accessories. Although we call the lush state of Washington home, many of our clients hail from the mid-west, the east coast, Canada, Mexico, the Orient and countries abroad in Eastern and Western Europe, below the equator in Brazil and Australia and upwards to Norway, Iceland and Greenland! Many of the wonderful people we have met have become lifetime friends, experts in the field of antiquities and especially focused on dolls and related accessories, furnishings and ephemera. We have had the opportunity to represent, acquire and handle dolls of rarity and distinction and sacred family dolls that have been passed down from generation to generation. Dolls and their unique mark in history are the passion that ignite us. We are filled with awe and reverence when we are given the privilege to assist a collector, whether new or seasoned, in acquiring a doll that has either been a long-time dream or a new discovery that has launched them in a new direction. Conversely, we are pledged to offer guidance and service to family members that have lost a loved collector and need assistance and direction. Inheriting one or dozens of antique dolls if you are not a collector can be overwhelming! We insist on protecting not only the dolls, but the family from unscrupulous buyers that would attempt to fleece a family because they lack knowledge.
We specialize in antique dolls and furnishings from the 19th century although we occasionally have something from either the 18th or 20th century. Please email any questions, curiosities or just to discuss a unique find. We love to listen, help and learn!
As a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs and the National Antique Doll Dealers Association, it is my privilege and responsibility to honor the dolls and the place in history that they represent. I look forward to meeting you online, by telephone or in person at one of our shows. Your feedback is welcome and encouraged.
