My most recent doll hospital restoration is Flora McFlimsey, a composition doll made by Madame Alexander from 1939-1944. You can read all about the repairs and link to tutorials to see how to repair your own dolls on the blog. I guess my social media strategies must finally be working to get the word out; today alone I've had three requests for doll repairs! I'm not going to complain. Usually I have to find the dolls, repair the dolls, and then try to sell them, so restoring others' dolls saves me time and money! I used to worry about ruining someone's doll but then my friend, Lynn, sent me a doll repair school textbook and one of the first lessons is about how people are sending you broken dolls to fix, so it's not like you'd be breaking someone's valuable doll. And anyway, from what I can see, I am one of the only composition repair people out there and the only one repairing shattered glass eyes. So I guess I know what I'm doing as much as anyone! I am happy to admit more patients to the hospital, although there is at least a 2 week turnaround at the moment, depending on the complexity of the repair. Feel free to contact me for an estimate! As always, please link to my shops from the Home page to purchase already-restored dolls and doll repair kits and supplies.
