From S. Holbrook and Blog Issues

Below is a post from Theriault's, for those who enjoy hearing about them. The Thanksgiving wish is very nice. I am having a lot of trouble getting to my blogger dashboard to add posts and maintain my blogs. I can find them on the Internet, but signing in is becoming very difficult. I will do my best to rectify this mess. Enjoy the post below.
Dear Friends, First of all, as we creep towards Thanksgiving, which I can hardly believe is happening this week, let me be the first to wish you all a wonderful day with family and friends and, of course, to give our own thanks to you for the friendship and fun we share in dolls. This year seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. It was fun indeed! Over the past 11 months Theriault’s has handled nearly 30,000 dolls (that is a lot of transactions and happy collectors!) conducted over 30 events (that is a lot of logistics) and I have personally covered nearly 265,000 miles (with 228 days of travel) around the world to host, meet, and work with collectors from a bevy of towns, states, and countries. With that has come a year to be remembered and the success of Theriault’s biggest in sales in its 42-year history. With that said, the year is not done! Over the next few weeks we will finish off with our final three events of 2012 as we lead you into our famed January Auction Gala to start 2013 (and wait until you hear about that). Keep tuned to our schedule as in November/December we are racing down the stretch with four auctions in under 21-days. Whew! Oh, and January, well....you will get the details soon and it’s going to be an event like none other. Three days of auctions that will span throughout a two-volume catalog with nearly 1000 pieces. Best of all, the diversity it will offer is like no other January before in that it features the collections of four major figures who have been beloved in their circle of the doll world: Mary Young of Atlanta, Margaret George of Atlanta, Mary Marxen of Cincinnati, and Mildred Adkins of Louisville. Each brought their own personality and love of dolls into the world of collecting for decades and as a result will showcase a complete history of dolls in virtually every genre imaginable. I hope to personally see you in the coming weeks as we bring a close to a fantastic 2012 and a bright start to an exciting 2013. And next week we can all give thanks on our special American day for the joy and fun we get from doll collecting and, above all, the wonderful friends we make in this shared adventure. Happy Collecting and a Very Happy Thanksgiving, Stuart stuart@theriaults.com P.S. Just a quick reminder to join Theriault's Facebook page as we post interesting little tidbits there for collectors as well as regular contest giveaways!
