Hi all,

I have just posted close to 25 books on making, collecting, costuming, and appreciating dolls, be they cloth, bisque or what-have-you.  Many of these books are out-of print.

On a personal note, these came from my grandmother's collection.  She made dolls from porcelein and cloth, and clothed them all herself.  She taught me the craft when I was a child, but i never kept it up.  She passed a year ago this week, and I've been holding onto these books since then.  Long story--basically, my uncle was throwing out everything of hers so he could sell her house as fast as possible and pocket the money.  I saved her dolls and her doll memorabilia because I couldn't stand to see these thrown out. 

I want to know the books will go to someone who will really appreciate them, so I thought I would post them here because here, people request what they need or want or have been searching for.  I hope someone will enjoy them as my grandmother did.

I'll ask my mom to take a look she makes and collects dolls and doll clothes.
