Welcome to Dollfixer.com
I am a doll collector and along with my husband I have chosen to share my skills and expertise with others that share my passion for Antique and Vintage dolls. I provide Doll Repair, Doll Stringing, doll costume repair / restoration and can create new doll costumes and dresses. See Doll Repairs
We can also help you sell your Vintage and Antique dolls. We sell your dolls on commission in our display cases in antique shops in the Modesto CA. area, through our web sales portal and at doll shows all over Northern California and the San Francisco Bay area. Please note that in most cases we do not purchase dolls direct. We just sell them on consignment Help selling your dolls
Note: that the dolls you see throughout my site are some of the more interesting ones I have encountered selling dolls or are projects I have worked on for customers.
We are located in Northern California near Modesto CA. (see map). We have contacts and have been repairing dolls in the Central Valley area including Stockton, Fresno, Salida, San Francisco Bay area, Oakdale, Merced, Turlock, Los Banos and Sacramento.

Roseville Doll Show (not attending)
Because of sudden health issues I have had to cancel my attendance at the Roseville Show. I still hope to continue the rest of the fall shows and will be sure to update the schedule as needed.
Details on our Shops
My husband (the techie) has taken some new photos and has updated the shops page of the web site with more details of the types of dolls and accessories we feature in the various shops where we sell dolls. If you are in the Modesto area I hope you will visit all my shops but if you can only get to one you will now be able to know which shop suits your doll collecting specialty. see shops
We offer online appraisals for people who cannot get to our shops. See online appraisals
Doll Sales on the Web
Everyone is always asking me why don't you sell dolls on the web. Well now we have the answer you have all been waiting to hear. We have started to sell a selection of vintage and antique dolls from the web site. My husband (The web master) has started the listing processes and will be posting more dolls for sale on the web as fast as he can take the photos and enter the listing text. See web listings We have always been hesitant to sell on the web because it takes a lot of effort to do it right. We have tried to be sure the listings have the information you need to appreciate the doll and be sure you are comfortable and confident about the doll when you decide to purchase.
For those of you who may have been looking for me at the shows and were missing the doll fixer mobile I wanted to let you know I have a new van for the show transport. My Volvo was nice and has a lot of room but it was not quite big enough for the shows, To get everything we needed we had to pack stuff on the roof and pack every square inch in the back. For bigger shows we had to pull the trailer which was a pain. I now have a very nice Ford Transit Connect Van which can take all the show merchandise with ease. No more trailer Yeah. I was able to get the van in a nice silver color instead of the oh so common white.
