This website grew out of the Fashionable Ladies site I started in 1997. Boy, the web was a whole lot simpler then! That site was devoted to the glamour dolls of the 1950s such as Madame Alexander’s Cissy and Ideal’s Revlon Doll. As my interests expanded, so did the site, and in 2006 it became VintageDollCollector.com. My goal is simply to document as many 20th century dolls and their outfits as possible. I focus on the dolls that children played with from the 1930s through the 1970s, but you will find dolls from earlier and later years, as well as some artist and “collector” dolls here too.
I am an antique dealer with interests in history, homesteading and Americana music. I live in southern Maine with my husband, two cats and assorted chickens. I am an active member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs. Thank you for stopping by and happy dolling!
