Of Auctions and Other Pleasures
Now and then I like to share my emails and newsletters of doll and antique auctions. Theriault's is very good about sending these. I have some of their catalogs, and bought several interesting things from Doll Masters; wish they would send it again! I've not won dolls there, but years ago used to correspond with Florence T on the old AOL Hobby Central, where P. Smith also snubbed me, and Eleanor St. George in one fell Swoop! I met my friends at JnJ Dolls there, too, and I miss Hobby Central and The Book Report very muc. I've had great luck at Frashers, where Barbara remembers my name every time, McMasters, Tom Harris Auctions, and Noel Barret. He also remembers people, and will answer the phone himself to talk to youl That's customer service. I like getting news from Artfact and Morphy as well, and with my husband, who is great at bidding, will have luck at a local auction now and then. Here are some more tidbits from recent Theriault's auctions. I love the way they are written, don't you?
