About Us
My love affair with antique dolls began at the age of 6, when I discovered a broken antique C.O.D. German doll shoulderhead in my grandmother's sewing basket! Many years later, I am still collecting, and I began selling quality antique dolls, accessories, and collectibles in 1991. I still have Nana's C.O.D.; this is a very special doll, despite her flaws! My favorite dolls are the Bru Jne bebes, and I have been adding these wonderful dolls to my collection since 1989. I have a special love for the Chevrot body Bru and find this body style to be a work of art!

I have been a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs since 1993, and have been attending their national conventions since 1994.

In addition to my love of antique dolls, I am an animal lover, and am currently the "mother" to two Thai cats (formerly known as the "Old- Fashioned" or "Apple Head" Siamese)! These strictly indoor cats (spoiled rotten) live harmoniously with my dolls, although I did see someone batting around a Bru shoe a time or two (like they don't have enough toys). In addition, I have a feral cat colony of 6 cats, all of them having gone through the local TNR (trap, neuter, release) program.

In the non-doll world, I am a retired RN and currently (on a volunteer basis) teach the Neonatal Resuscitation Program to nurses, physicians, PAs, EMTs and Paramedics at the local hospital. While I have a post graduate degree in health care administration, I preferred "bedside" nursing, and worked in the newborn ICU for 38 years.

In my 55+ years of collecting antique dolls, I have learned one thing: the more I learn about an antique doll, the more I realize how little I know. What fun to be learning something new every day!
