Theriault's Memorial Day

From Stuart Holbrook: At Theriault's.com: Dear Friends, It’s me again. Not that it’s about me. It’s not. It’s about dolls. It's about you. Great collections. And the legacy of memorable moments and historic auctions in which you can build upon for your own vision. Big news, are you ready? Las Vegas. The Bellagio Hotel. Memorial Day weekend (May 24th and 25th...gotta love the extra day to make it perfect!). And, most importantly, nearly 1000 dolls. Not just any dolls...but one of the most diverse and exciting presentations in the mosaic of doll history we have ever seen. How perfect is the title of the weekend: "Kaleidoscope." Why so diverse? That’s easy to explain. The entire weekend encompasses the vision and love of varying styles of dolls from legendary Pennsylvania collector, Helen Welsh, whose collection has been recently featured in Antique Doll Collector magazine, and the great early collection of Evelyn Heidepriem, who single-handedly put South Dakota on the map for doll collecting and inspired thousands of collectors across the Western Plains. Two very different people. Two very different places. One shared love of dolls. The result, one of the most exciting and unique events in Theriault’s history...a veritable kaleidoscope of dolls whose patterns and designs and colors will vary through the eye of each and every collectors. I have trouble thinking of one category, style, genre, really...whatever, that is not represented. And I mean represented well. French? Lots. German characters? Of course. European cloth? You should see the Lenci and Kathe Kruse! American cloth and wooden? You bet. Automata? Yes! Early toys? Indeed! And the list goes on. And on. And on. This is one that you will want to come to. As if I need to encourage you to join in the fun of Vegas, the grandness of The Bellagio Hotel (we have a really good special rate!), and the amazement of these two legendary collections which offer you nearly 1000 pieces from which to choose. But, I am going to say it again, “You need to come.” Great moments like this are fleeting. Two great collections coming together in a “Kaleidoscope” of dolls comes only so often. My jokes will be the same. Sorry. I promise though to give you something far better, a weekend you will never forget that is framed inside the impassioned vision of two great collectors who want only that you continue their unique and individual dream in your own special way. Questions? Call us at 800-638-0422 or 410-224-3655. Or email me at stuart@theriaults.com. Happy Collecting, Stuart Holbrook President Theriault’s
