From time to time it becomes necessary for me to sort through my dolls.  I have therefore decided to offer for sale, dolls I no longer require.
Anyone wishing to purchase a doll can pay with Paypal (or cheque or Postal Order if living in the U.K.).
Postage to be paid by the purchaser please.

Please contact me for postage quotes through my email:, quoting the Code no. for a doll, which you will see at the top of the listing.

I will always combine postage whenever possible.

Thank you.
