Freckles by Cindy M. McClure Dolls

Collectible dolls are very special at Karen’s Collectors Cottage, Inc. & Art Gallery.  Dolls are collected based on the  year they were made, whether they were handmade or machine made, if hair or linens are real or synthetic, the facial features, and other features including moveable eyes or arms and legs.

Dolls come from all different countries: France, Germany, Poland, the USA…you name it! Every doll maker in each different country has a different way of handcrafting their dolls and giving them special features. Doll values can range from under $20.oo to $4,000 and higher.
