I will be listing more dolls and other related items as I go through them, as well as more Barbie related items. So stay tuned for the above link to be updated as I clean out my doll and prop hoard. 

Most of this Sale frenzy is due to a need for extra funds as my husband was in a car accident last week and we may need some extra funds for expenses that were incurred in the accident. He was not injured but his truck was totaled and this has set us back on our budget. As we all know in the dolly world, life happens and I am parting with much loved items that are not played with but just displayed. The more expensive doll giftsets I would prefer to do privately and just invoice through paypal than do on ebay. 

Stay tuned and more items coming soon. Lisa

Paris event SUPERFROCK Slipper Sybarite doll with Carrying Case, shoes, shoebox, stand, headscarf, and extras- wig, and wig cap. $550 Slipper still available- Buyer backed out of sale. 

Slipper does have issues standing, it is difficult for her to stand due to a loose body, which probably needs re-stringing. She displays better sitting, which is how I have displayed her since owning her- I am the second owner of this doll. The first owner purhased her at the Paris event where she was an exclusive doll.

Shoes really open like a compace with tiny powder puff inside. I have kept them inside their shoebox and not really displayed them since they are a little fragile, she has been displayed with other shoes on. 

Slipper's Carrying case. It is lined with pink silk inside and intact. The outside has scratches from carrying it on the plane ride home with the previous owner when they attended the Paris event. Slipper will be shipped in this case and it will be wrapped in bubble to protect it more in the box when shipped. I will insure as well. Signature confirmation will be required on this doll.

The Capital Doll Club Show & Sale

Every year, the Capital doll club of Richmond, Va. has a show and sale in February at the Richmond Raceway complex. It used to be at the old Showplace but that got sold and turned into a Roses shopping center over on route 360. So the promoters moved the show over to the Richmond Raceway complex, which is good, because the venue is a cleaner building and a safer one with more parking too.

I know a lot of people in the club too. Always wanted to join as they are a United Federation of Doll Clubs (club). 

My Virginia fashion doll club members usually get a table and sell their little hearts out, and they do quite well. 

This show surprised me- doll shows have been going down lately. But this one had LOADS of deals and dealers.  It was the first really great doll show that had tons of great stuff, in years. 

So....I did buy a doll, from Sheri's Dolls  She specializes in historical dolls with one of kind crocheted costumes on them. She uses alot of different Barbies and even does child dolls. Well, today I gave in and purchased one at a deal I could not pass on. I will not post it in here in this post, but save that for one post by herself. I will post pics of the other beauties though....

My friend Marina purchased the mother and daughter above in lavender, or rather, put them on layaway. Cheryl has layaway plans as well. I will be posting pictures of my doll I purchased today at a later time when I set up pics.

Another friend of mine I saw was Sylvia Butler of Tar Hill Creations. She creates reproduction costumes and reproductions of antique french fashion dolls- and who I got Annabelle from at the Capital doll show about four or five years ago. Maybe even six or seven years ago. Recently after closing down the website and eBay store I had sent her some boxes of silk trim and bunka threads, rolls of lace that I had and was not going to use and I knew she could. She and I talked and I took some photos of her beautiful dolls. I love Sylvia's beautiful clothes, and hats. If you collect she also makes and sells shoes for the dolls too- she was selling wonderful ice skates and I picked up a pair as well as a bodice and a pair of stockings for Annabelle.

Here are some of her beauties...

This dress here has some of the ribbon I sent her...Isn't it lovely?It's made for a 16 inch French fashion doll..

This Huret right here is a limited resin body reproduction by Louise Hendrick who loaned her antique Huret and worked with someone else to have the bodies reproduced in resin with ball jointed doll technology, Sylvia related to me. The bodies are 'high' at $200+ but that's reasonable for a bjd/ reproduction french fashion doll! I SO WANT HER! hoping I can find out more about this beauty later on....found a new holy grail. Always wanted a Huret.

Sigh....they are just splendid. It's like a walk into yesteryear...of 1890...

Lots more at this show to see, than I took pictures of, there was a TON OF BARBIE!!! As well as Madame Alexander, Dawn, Ginny , GI Joe, and antique dolls as well. This last pic above is the dealer who sells nothing but reference books on collectible dolls, and other collectible items too. Hard to find reference books. 

I had a ball. After I was through, went with my buddy Karon and we went to lunch at a nearby local Italian restuarant called Arianna's and finally got some time to ourselves. I needed, needed some down time after this week...which has been really , really stressful. This was so much fun to look at all of these beautiful dolls...especially the antique ones. And the teddy bears could reel me in to a new hobby as well!
More later! Enjoy the pictures!~Lisa
