Xmas Newsletter

Dancing Divas from Degas, The Master
Appropriately enough, "Rudolph" is playing on TV as I type;the toys just finished singing on the Island of Misfit Toys.  I hope this Christmas you find several dolls you want under the tree, and that you are able to give a few dolls to charity, too.  Towards the end of adding to your collection, Theriault's is holding another Rendezvous Auction this Monday.   Alexander and Tonner also continue to offer special deals, and there are lots of wonderful dolls on Ruby Lane, Doll Shops United, Ebay, Etsy, and more. Remember to write to me at etsag1998@aol.com, and let me know what your doll wants are in 2016!  Happy collecting!
