It was like a scene out of Toy Story, a plain looking cardboard box, pretty green wrapping paper inside, then OUT JUMPS the valiant Robin Hood with bow strung over his shoulder!
Then came row after row of beautiful collectable dolls, meticulously stored away for the day for the day these precious treasures find new homes and people who will love them!
We actually have quite a huge collection of collectable dolls at the shop, but these were all from a collector who worked at the former Shaffer Pen Company in Ft. Madison, IA. The factory had a gift shop where workers could buy items from sister companies at a discount. Most of these dolls were bought there. We are still working on identifying them and posting them to our website. Some are so rare, we simply can’t find any images of them out there on the internet.
Mary Lou has been collecting dolls for years. Here’s a few pictures of some of the dolls we have in stock. It’s a little girl’s dream 🙂
Between all these, the mannequins, the stuffed animals, the nick nacks, statuettes and dancing solar toys, there is probably quite a party going on here every night 😉 But we are sure every single one is longing for a forever home.
We will continue to post all these treasures on our website as we have time, so if you aren’t able to come in to see the entire collection, check back with our website often!
