On Saturday April 7th, I was blessed with a wonderful gift from my long time friend and almost mother, Marilyn Hollenbach from the St. Louis, Mo. area. Marilyn is downsizing and moving into a smaller home and no longer had a place for her 30 plus years of doll molds. That Saturday morning, Marilyn's children, had arranged for a U-Haul truck to bring me the thousands of pounds of molds from Marilyn's basement and garage. ( No one but a true doll-maker gets excited over 4,000 pounds of plaster)!! Here are a few photos from the unloading process:
View our fabulous doll displays of museum quality antique reproduction and modern dolls along with antique dolls in seasonal displays. Purchase a new doll wig or a pair of shoes for that favorite doll in need of a little repair.
I welcome doll clubs and groups to call for an appointment to set up a time to visit. Desserts and ice tea can be made available for group visits. If you have some time in the area I can also arrange for a stop by Ideas and Designs Antique Mall and Mad Hatter Tea Room in Mt. Carroll, which is a great source of high quality new silk and decorator fabrics.
