Creations Estate Sale Baby Dolls Background

My mother and I started collecting baby dolls in 1999. When reborned baby dolls became popular, we auctioned cloth bodies that my mother sewed for full limbed reborns. We also auctioned baby dolls, both unaltered and moderately reborned.

My interest in doll collecting declined in 2005, but my mother’s interest in creating reborn baby dolls flourished. My mother amassed a large collection of reborns she made herself as well as a few she purchased from reborn artists. Though her passion was reborned baby dolls, she also had a smaller collection of manufactured collectible baby dolls.

After my mother’s passing in 2014, I set aside a few of her dolls as keepsakes for myself and family. I will be listing the remaining baby dolls from my mother’s collection. Please see my current auctions for more dolls and continue to follow as I add more doll listings.

Programming Note: The estate doll sale will soon come to a close. I hope to be finished listing dolls on or before September 30, 2015. I do have some doll parts and other supplies that I plan to list in October. Thank you to all who have bid on dolls from me :)

Doll was displayed on a white laminate bookshelf in a smoke and pet free adult home. As such, the doll is in good condition.

Fragrance Note: Doll was originally stored in a bedroom in my mother’s home. The clothing closets in this bedroom contained moth balls. Doll has been kept in my moth ball free home for several weeks. The doll did not smell like moth balls to me, but I have stored it with a Snuggle Blue Sparkle fabric softener sheet for 8 hours for good measure. The doll has a faint Snuggle scent, but that scent should lessen over time.


I did my best to capture the coloring and hair of the doll. Doll photos taken under bright fluorescent lights in order to minimize shadows and avoid the use of the harsh camera flash. Photos have been sharpened after resizing, but no filters or alterations have been applied.
