FINALLY !! Someone mentions the word porcelain in connection
with doll ... I was beginning to despair, feeling as though I
was wading knee deep through an undulating wave of Barbies...
My sister also makes porcelain dolls and collects (she likes
the "moderns" not the reproductions of the french Jumeaus (sp?))
and from her I have come to understand why she'll pay a $150
for a doll instead of scarffing one up at a bargain price of
$49.99 on the Home Shopping Channel or at the Cracker Barrell
General Store (which is not really a slam on the Cracker Barrell
merchandise because the $49.99 porcelain doll from them is
actually very well done and dressed very well - what I would use
to get my child's doll collection started off with...) Anyway
Anne has relies on doll shows, the magazines Doll Crafter and
Contemporary Doll for her inspiration and leads and sources.
We are new to internetting as my sister just got an account
from the university (she's taking some early childhood classes)
so we decided to check it out and I am trying to find more
places that talk about porcelain dolls ... but its a slow
process as we are learning the tools we need to use on the
net as we go along...
