DOLLS FROM PERU, AUSTRIA and FRANCE, (and Costume Postcards)

Today I am listing new dolls from PERU, AUSTRIA, and FRANCE (Brittany).

I am also listing some duplicate costume postcards on the "DOLLS FOR SALE" page, as I think they may be of interest to someone who collects postcards of people in costume, as they are a good source of information if you do not have a doll from that country.

In addition to this, I am adding dolls from CYPRUS, TONGA and SCOTLAND on the "DOLLS FOR SALE" page.

For more information about the Peru, Austria and France (Brittany) dolls, please see the website, and as always, the dolls for sale (and postcards for sale) can be found on the "DOLLS FOR SALE"page.
Thank you.

MY NEW WEBSITE (LIVE)

MY NEW WEBSITE
IS NOW "LIVE!".

It is now up and running!
It has the same name!
(www.worldcostumedolls.com)

I have recently added three more dolls onto it.  They are one from NEW CALEDONIA, and two from GUATEMALA.

I am still getting used to it, so please be patient.

When you go to "Inventory" you will now be able to put a doll and its' Code No. into the search box and it will bring that doll up, so it should be a lot quicker for you!  (If you don't add the Code No. it will bring up all the listed dolls for that country).

Here are the pictures of the dolls which I have added recently. 

NEW CALEDONIA
Website Id:  (Oceania - New Caledonia - 001

GUATEMALA

PLEASE NOTE:  I am unable to add new dolls onto my website at the moment, as I will be changing my Server, and I will also be having some "up-dating" work done on my website.  In the meantime, I will continue to catalogue more dolls ready to put onto my new website, and I will also add on more dolls for sale, as and when I have any.  I am also planning on adding TWO new pages onto my website, but this may take a bit of time, so please keep watching!
Many thanks.
