Welcome to Dollfixer.com
I am a doll collector and along with my husband I have chosen to share my skills and expertise with others that share my passion for Antique and Vintage dolls.
We can also help you sell your Vintage and Antique dolls. We sell your dolls on commission in our display cases in antique shops in the Modesto CA. area, through our web sales portal and at doll shows all over Northern California and the San Francisco Bay area. Please note that in most cases we do not purchase dolls direct. We just sell them on consignment Help selling your dolls
Please see our other pages above with more details of the services we offer.
We are located in Northern California near Modesto CA. (see map below). We however have contacts and have been repairing dolls in the Central Valley area including Stockton, Fresno, Salida, Oakdale, Merced, Turlock, Los Banos and Sacramento.
The map shows the locations of the shops.

Plans for Pleasanton Show
For the Pleasanton show I will have a dedicated table for doll stringing while you are at the show. A couple of my friends Tim and Danny will be there to help me with the stringing and help assess other repairs your dolls may need. I am also going to bring my trailer with all my trims and fabric in addition to a large set of dolls. This is the time to bring your sewing projects to make sure you get all you need to finish them up.
New show plans
The Fall shows are over and were a big success. We plan to keep
busy for the winter with repairs and new doll
collections. We are already
making plans for the Spring doll shows in Pleasanton, Roseville and San
Jose. We are adding the Roseville show to our schedule this year. By then we should have lots of dolls that
have never been to these shows and will be bringing a collection of vintage and
antique doll clothes and accessories including shoes. Always remember the
dolls I am selling are available in my
between shows. See Doll Show Schedule
Details on our Shops
MY husband (the techie) has taken some new photos and has updated the shops page of the web site with more details of the types of dolls and accessories we feature in the various shops where we sell dolls. If you are in the Modesto area I hope you will visit all my shops but if you can only get to one you will now be able to know which shop suits your doll collecting specialty. see shops
We now also offer online appraisals for people who cannot get to one of our shops. See online appraisals
Doll Sales on the Web
Everyone is always asking me why don't you sell dolls on the web. Well now we have the answer you have all been waiting to hear. We have started to sell a selection of vintage and antique dolls from the web site. My husband (The web master) has started the listing processes and will be posting more dolls for sale on the web as fast as he can take the photos and enter the listing text. See web listings We have always been hesitant to sell on the web because it takes a lot of effort to do it right. We have tried to be sure the listings have the information you need to appreciate the doll and be sure you are comfortable and confident about the doll when you decide to purchase.
For those of you who may have seen me at a show or at a shop I wanted to let you know that I have a new Doll Fixer mobile. My old blue wagon was going to need some serious work. Given the great deals the dealer was giving on new cars it made more sense to trade in for a new car instead of doing the needed work on the old one. I went for a different color. I really liked the blue but it just showed the dirt too much. I do like the new color and it looks clean even if there is just a little dust on it.
