Antique Doll Collector Magazine; Subscribe Online

Here and there, you find dolls in Pym, or references to collectors.  Norman and his "stuffed animals" in Quartet in Autum, Cycladic Idols, Faberge Eggs, Father Christmas cake toppers, soap animals, so for those who want to know more, a chance to subscribe to an excellent magazine on the topic of Antique and Vintage dolls, many from Pym's lifetime.

I've added something new, and will also add it to my other blogs.  To the right is the July Cover of Antique Doll Collector Magazine, with the caption inviting you to subscribe.  It is easy to do, and they will take PayPal, which is even easier.  Antique Dolls show they don't slouch when it comes to  modern social media and technology.  It's now easier than ever to keep up with the exciting world of antique dolls and doll collecting, including vintage dolls, auction information, doll show information and more!
