Collecting Fashion Dolls
Collecting fashion dolls and sewing for them is a fun hobby for me. I've established this blog to connect with doll enthusiasts. Your comments are welcome.
Entries contain dates in this site. To make the upload faster for the posts, I'll transfer the key articles to permanent posts in some of my sites. Please visit my homepage as posted to locate key articles.
This blog site cover articles which mostly involves collecting fashion dolls and do-it-yourself projects. "Frugal Doll Collector" is the key word to the posts in this site. Collecting fashion dolls is a fun hobby, provided it does not break one's financial bank. This site is about having fun in doll collecting.
Articles are based on my existing collection of fashion dolls from the 1950s to the present. I hope that the articles will be useful to collectors. I enjoy my collection daily and wish for everyone the same.
