An Old-Fashioned Doll Shop in Mid-Coast Maine
About Grove Street Doll Shop
Our Service PledgeMy aim is that all my customers and collectors will be very happy with their purchases. I respond to all orders and questions within a couple of hours- most of the time, immediately, but I cannot guarantee a response while sleeping. I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
About UsThis is one of three online versions of my antique doll shop in my hometown of Bath, Maine. The other are our own website, which has more items for sale than here and is well worth a visit. We also have a shop on Etsy. There is even more available in my retail shop and we look forward to seeing you there.
Tucked away in an 1830's house in the heart of Bath's beautiful Historic District, the shop contains antique and vintage dolls, toys, stuffed animals, doll accessories, folk art, fabric, ribbons, lace and ephemera. All kinds of tiny delights for your dollhouse await you, too. We are open all year round by appointment. Please don’t hesitate to let me know when you’d like to visit.
Growing up in a family of collectors, I spent a fair amount of time poking around in antique shops and lived in a household that revered the past, aesthetically. Surrounded by old advertising art and antique wooden chests, clocks that tick-tocked, windup toys and mechanical penny banks, the patina of age came to be normal and desirable to my eye. My inspiration has always come from old things, and as we all know, the collecting thing starts when you're a wee babe....
In my previous life, I worked as a floral designer for 17 years, in addition to careers in graphic design and as a patternmaker in the apparel industry. I've also had my own millinery studio, and a delightful, rewarding 10 years as a teddy bear artist, then another 9 years as a doll maker. I am a member of the UFDC.
