Rescue Dolls

Since I started to volunteer at our local Op Shop I have become known as “The Doll Lady” to the other volunteers. It started when we were about to throw away a baby doll whose face had been painted over.

“Don’t chuck him out.” I said “I might be able to get those marks off.” I took him home and cleaned him up and before long the other volunteers started putting dolls aside for me to tidy up.

I wash them, tidy their hair and either find or make clothing for them. We usually put them out whenever we open on a Saturday and they are usually snapped up really fast.

Here is a list of some of my rescue doll stories.



    • Hi Gail I think that you would probably have to search the internet. Someone might be selling a doll for parts that you could get a new leg from or a torso. I don’t know of anyone who makes a business of selling parts for broken dolls. Wouldn’t that be a great idea?
