Customer Question
I have a large...

I have a large box of dolls to dispose of. I am 71 yrs. old and cannot stand to just throw them in the garbage. I have a yrs. worth of doll of the month, and various other dolls such as a Carmen Miranda, Indian, Anniversary doll etc. Not necessarily looking to sell. Looking for someone who would life to work with them to restore them.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I can think of. They have been boxed for years.

Hi,

You may want to consider contacting Heritage Auctions at http://www.ha.com they have an outpost in Dallas.

However, if you are not in need of selling the dolls, the best method would be to donate them to a local Salvation Army, Goodwill, Re-Store or Humane Society second hand shop. You can request a donation receipt for a tax deduction for 2018.
