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 sewing. I live in southern Maine with my husband and two cats. I am an active member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.
Comments on the site have been disabled because it’s impossible to answer ID questions without a photo. If you have a doll that you need to identify, post a photo or two on my Facebook page It’s better to post to the page rather than sending me a message – that way other collectors can see it too. I don’t know everything! If you are looking to find out your doll’s value, read this post: How Much Is My Doll Worth?
Thank you for stopping by and happy dolling!
