I've spent years repairing almost anything that I thought I could. It was natural to move on to repairing and stabilizing old dolls. I started with my own badly broken heirloom composition dolls and moved onto friends dolls. So many women have an old cherished doll stuffed away in a box because with age they become brittle and broken. After a tearful urging by a women whose 50 year old "Tiny Tears" was in sad, fragile condition, I also revitalize old rubber dolls. I repair composition, rubber, porcelain and wood using standard doll repair technique and acid free products. I cannot make any doll, museum quality PERFECT again - but I can stop the deterioration, repair most structural and visual damage and make the doll worthy of proud display again.

It costs you nothing to discuss the possibilities. Email me your ideas and project requirements at- firstname.lastname@example.org. I live and work in the Mid-Hudson Valley, Town of Highland, and will gladly, at no charge, travel to meet with you to further discuss a project. I work freelance from my home, sending design files via internet to any printer or person, world wide.
A photo portfolio of DOLL REPAIR projects, before and after, is available for your review. After an "in hand" inspection of the item to be repaired, I can give you a price quote. I will be completely honest with you and refer you to others in the industry if I do not think I can stabilize and beautify your doll.
My projects are completed on deadline and within budget. And- your plumber charges more per hour for professional services than I do.
