About UsHello! My shop offers many types of dolls, such as German bisque dolls, China heads, composition dolls, doll clothes and modern dolls too! My name is Elaine Wojcinski and I have been a doll collector for over 35 years. My passion has always been antique dolls. I began to sell antique and vintage dolls at doll shows in 1996 and have been a dealer ever since. If you have been to shows in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio or Michigan, you may have seen me and my dolls. I have been selling here on Ruby Lane since 2011.
I enjoy hunting for old dolls and bringing them to collectors. I try to find dolls that are unique and different whenever I can. My regular doll show customers know I will always have something unusual on my table. I try to do that here on Ruby Lane as well.
I do my very best to describe the dolls I offer as accurately as I can. I encourage questions from buyers as well. When I do shows, I always want my customers to thoroughly examine a doll, so when they walk away with it, they are perfectly happy. I strive to give my online buyers the same experience. If you have a question or need additional pictures for a specific doll, please don't hesitate to email me! Just be sure to use the email link on that doll's page. Emails sent from this page will not show a specific item ID. Also, if you don't see a reply to a question sent to me, please check you spam folder. Sometimes my reply gets directed there instead of your inbox.
I also work hard to give my customers an affordable price. As a collector myself, I know that a fair price in important. Since I also do doll shows, I am knowledgeable about current market prices and keep my items reasonable.
