DOLL REPAIR STRINGING WHILE YOU WAIT,
PORTLAND OR – VANCOUVER WA
I am now accepting doll repair stringing while you wait in the Portland, Oregon, Vancouver Washington area. I did this for many years in Portland as MORGAN’S COLLECTIBLES when I taught antique and collectible doll restoration.
I no longer have the equipment to do restoration, but it seems there is demand for someone locally to just do simple restringing of old dolls, so I am offering that service on a while-you-wait basis only, no mail order jobs please.
Call for an appointment to bring your dolls for restringing, and I do have a supply of doll clothes ( see the website for a look) on hand if your old doll needs an outfit. I ONLY work on dolls made pre-1960 (50 YEARS OR OLDER) and do no repairs other than stringing (or simple things I can do while you wait such as glue on a wig you bring with you).
Unhappily, I can’t find a place to buy the correct loops that fit the 8″ dolls like Ginny, Madame Alexander, etc. so I cannot restring the 8″ dolls. So sorry, I know there is a demand as I used to do a lot of them.
Please email for a brief list of prices or call JoAnn Morgan at 360-836-7556 for appointment or information, or contact me through email.
