Gone, but not forgotten

Last year I was feeling the need to scale down my dolls a bit. I’m not what you’d call a “doll collector” in the sense that I don’t buy them to dress up and showcase them in a cabinet. I buy the dolls I buy because I need them for modeling my doll outfits that I sew and sell.

I’ve found that the people who buy doll clothes REALLY want to see the dress you are selling on THE particular doll that it is intended for. For example, they want to see a Colonial dress on Felicity or Elizabeth and not so much on Kit or a doll with bangs. The dolls are pretty much stereotyped for the period they were created for. When you think of Samantha, you immediately think of the early 1900’s. When you see Kit, you imagine her in the Depression.

I narrowed down my collection to 5 dolls (now 6, since I’ve added Kirsten back in) and thought I could get by with them modeling most periods for me. So far, it’s worked out okay, but I thought I’d show you a few that I let go…

That was a lot of dolls taking up space on my “dolly shelf.” 6 is a nice number now!

Thanks for letting me share,
See you tomorrow,

  1. Jeanne: It’s always so good to meet someone with a “like mind” In my house, if the doll can’t work (people are not interested in purchasing clothes for her, she is rehomed!!!! It’s probably a tough stand to take but the only way to keep the numbers down and all the “kids” dressed. (Course that attitude doesn’t seem to apply to the Little Darlings…but they are all dressed all the time.

    You have had some beautiful dolls
