We have a doll, haul and we're bringing you with us come check it out.
Hi welcome back to my channel if you're new here my name is rachel.
I am here at turn of the century antiques I'm here with linda who's standing over there and we have a doll.
Haul doll hauls are fun, there's nobody that doesn't like a doll haul, and so we thought it would be neat if you- and I and linda check it out and discuss it together.
We've already checked it out and done a little bit of things, but we haven't really dived too deep into it and there's all kinds of things there's a little bit of everything, and I know you're going to want to see it just because it's fun, we will be listing a lot of the things on our ebay and stuff a little bit later on, but this is the beginning and it's fun to see the behind the scenes of the beginning and discussing what we do and how we sort it and how it all works.
So this is the behind the scenes of a real live living, breathing antique vintage, modern doll shop in colorado.
Okay, so we're going to go over there now we're not going in the back, because when we go in the back, sometimes it can get really crazy, but sometimes it gets crazy over here in the front too, and we have rules, we have house rules.
What is our number one rule for when we go off-roading in the doll shop say it with me: keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times.
This is for your safety and the safety of our performers.
Are you ready? Let's go hey linda hi how's it going it's going.
Fine you've been doing awesome stuff with the dolls today.
Welcome and what is happening behind you over here right over here just goes to show.
We never know exactly.
What's going on so also stanley is uh, making a lemonade stand for a future project.
We have coming.
That is super fun.
So that's that's what that is over there, but and thank you stanley.
So, linda we got some fun stuff happening.
We do look at all this wonderful stuff, all right.
Let's give you, let's give everyone a little pan we've been working with a real sweet family who just brought us all of these things so that we can find them good homes and we're we got our work cut out for us.
We do okay, so what's jumping out at you first well, the obvious.
I think we both this is a fun character.
This is by sfbj and I believe she is that she had 236 or a 238.
Let's look on the back of the neck and see it's kind of hard to tell 238 238 okay, so you can see that mark, that's a 238 and that's the character.
So what we love about this doll first of all, is that she is a character which is hard to harder to find than a lot of the other dolls that are on the table, especially like her modeling in her face and she doesn't have any damage.
No damage, she's beautiful she'll be fun.
We have a smaller one in our case down down in the back, so it's fun to see the smaller ones.
Next to the big ones, I thought this was adorable.
Is it a tea caddy or no? It's a pin um for the old pinkish um.
Oh, you hold your pencil safety pin and not safety, pins clothes pins! Oh and this used to be yeah or I you know it could also be your lingerie at one time cute.
Let's see who that is, does she have any markings on the back there? Of course it's at an a.m.
Do we not know what that is? Eleven.
It has remnants of its original clothing, which is always cute, even if it's falling off and then, of course, after all, it's a light.
There's a little bit of everything.
There is the top doll this one's interesting.
I think this is a what is it? Oh, it's a max handwork! It's a german doll, it's a pretty common german doll, but once they get once they get spruced up, it's amazing what a dog it looks more like a little boy to me.
That would make a great boy huh it would this one's a cute one, that's a kessner sleep eyes should have had my 129.
Is that one yes 129.? She needs a.
What does she need a bag? Yes, she needs a bath.
Everybody here needs a bath.
She needs like an overhaul.
Now I don't know who this is.
This is it looks like she's from the 20s? It's an early composition head.
The clothing is felt the body is cloth, but I I don't.
I don't know who made that those early dolls are the ones that are like that kind of hard to tell this one's really cute, but it has damage, but we could put a little wig on that and he would be cute to have, but the little outfit is so adorable you can tell, and- and we we are like this as doll people too- that the lady who owned these and loved these was a rescuer.
She did rescue.
That is a dream, baby cute baby.
Now I I can't think of it off the top of my head, but it's mark p.s, 23., probably like as soon as this video is over.
I know cute cute cute chubby little baby toddler.
Then we have some really interesting cloth.
I think some of them over here were just really really kind of fun.
This this one was an interesting one.
Look at he's got this bisque head.
That looks like his original body here see.
If you can hold him just so he'll, I can get him to focus there, but it's a biscuit.
It's not marked, but it's an ethnic doll.
Now this is where we're going off-road in here, a little bit.
Look at these apple head dolls.
This is it's a it's a rotted out apple.
I hate to like call it that, but that's basically what they, what the heads are made out of they're so crazy yeah.
How did they not do? How do they dry them out so that they don't mold? I don't know, but I've had apples that I put in my brown sugar that come out looking pretty bad.
Well, maybe we need to find out.
We should make some.
I know, isn't that it's not interesting, I'm sure after they dehydrate them or something I have no clue.
I really like this group look at the kewpie farmer.
He needs his little.
He needs a little staff right there, but he's cute yeah the rake yeah good, going stan, that's what I meant he's got his little peace sign behind his back he's cute a little skookum people used to actually send those in the mail yep.
Look at this little purse crocheted purse.
It's cute! Look at how delicate this is.
I love that what does that mean out of like a wicker? It looks like it's a wicker, but it's you can see through it.
Some of these cloth dolls are really cute as a raggedy collector, a lot of people really like the mollies they're made by molly.
She actually ripped off johnny grewell at the time she started, creating these around the time that he was very popular and caused him a lot of problems in lawsuits and everything else- and these are these- are the dolls.
They have a very distinctive look and then next one we have actual johnny guerrell dolls.
These are george jeans from the 1940s.
These right here are knickerbocker.
These are georgines from the 40s check this out.
I think these are so fun the brunchner topsy-turvy.
So there you go.
This is cute.
I thought this would be fun in the doll case to put a little something in these are very common, but but fun um, half dolls.
Oh there was one that was really interesting.
This one perfume, oh the bottom of it, is bisque, that's fun with glaze.
Let's see her face, interesting.
Okay, that is adorable, isn't that fun.
That would be a someone project to make, and then there is a lot of just supplies and projects.
I think this was her projects and things that she was going to fix.
Get that fmb major right.
She would look so different, finish and clean twice.
Oh look at that flippers, but do we have another flipper? That's the key here! This is a lot of vodka.
Oh there, it is oh good right there.
Two we have two flippers here again: we'd have to sort sorting.
So yes- and I said we're gonna kind of take people we're obviously not gonna.
Take take you through everything that we're gonna do here, but where do we start so? Where we start is, we generally will take the dolls that are worth the most in terms of commercial value and start there, because that's what we paid for.
So this is a knickerbocker.
I don't care, but look at how cute they are.
I know big, yes, go linda, go all right.
Linda's gonna start with these.
So where we're gonna start is we're gonna, I don't know what are we gonna? We're gonna put the put a lot of it kind of in storage and in our probably sorted okay category.
That's what I would do, but oh good, because guess what I'm gonna do it? Yes, please that's what I would do.
Oh that's cute, linda, didn't move faster than that.
Did I oh that's funny, but we won't know- and I will help linda- I'm just kidding um, but she she is the queen of getting everything sorted.
So we're gonna start there, but it was fun to have all of you along and you'll, see we'll probably do a video with her.
So you can see her transformation.
This would make a very cute boy we'll have to decide, but you'll see, you'll, see the transformation and what we decide to do.
Of course, you'll see a lot of these on our dollar listings on ebay, we'll probably put a lot of them together in different lots and just sell them that way, so you'll see them there and yeah, but it's always fun to share there'd, be a lot of fun things to work on yeah good, you mean for other people, yeah yeah.
Well, thank you for tuning in.
