Are your dolls valuable? The value of your doll collection may not be immediately apparent and we have professional appraisers who will be able to advise you on your treasures. Dolls that are old and mint condition are the most valuable and yet dolls that have been “played with” may also be holding a certain amount of value. Please call us to review before “cleaning” the doll. Do you have the clothes to go with the doll? The more original parts and accessories, including the box, packaging or wrapping, the more valuable your doll may be.
