We are a Proud Family Business,  satisfying customers for 43 years.

Here is our story
About our Family.... 

My name is Sandie and my husband's nickname is Moonie.
Let me explain that nickname first, He has been called 'Moonie' since the 4th grade, when he had one of those buzzed off little boy hair cuts.

So after all those years, we forgot his real name :)

You see, we have been together as a steady couple since 6th grade.  We were roller skaters and stayed together thru our teens, in our Competitive Skating, we were School Sweethearts.

We married 2 years after High School and are now married 52 years.

 We were born and raised right here in this small town in Pennsylvania.

 Our family now consists of 3 grown and married children, 2 Daughters and a Son.
They all live near by and have families of their own.

They have given us 8 Grandchildren, ranging from 28 years old, down to 12 years old, How wonderful is that!
We are a very close Family and Our House is the Gathering Place, and we love it.

 About our business...
We started as a Ceramic Business in 1972, with my love of painting and artwork, sculpting, and molds.
We had a very successful studio with a waiting list of students who wanted to learn from me.

 My love of dolls then took me into another direction, vinyl.
And I joined the Apple Valley Team in 1995. I love their Dolls, however, I had a very tough time saying I made them. After working all those years with pouring molds and playing in clay, along came these beautiful dolls, that we just had to assemble, so it was very difficult to say, "I made this".

I juggled the shop and the Apple Valley Doll business.
I would leave the shop to our daughters at times, so we could travel to Craft Shows, both with our hand poured and painted items and the Apple Valley Dolls.  What a contrast, but what fun we had.

We soon realized the Vinyl Dolls were taking over and we traveled the craft circuit in 7 States for 7 Years, doing about 20 to 25 Shows a year. The Apple Valley Dolls were then our biggest sellers.  

Everyone loved them.
And we made many friends at the different shows who became repeat customers.

 So now, we had the shop and the Craft Show circuit, what next!!!

Then the kids said to me, "You need a website"!!!!  That was in the year 1999.

'ME', who never sat at a computer, although I was a secretary for 4 years before the children came. So, at least, I could type.  Well they bought a computer and a little desk and turned me loose.
I was on my own from there. I loved it!!!!

My website is now 18 years old. I worked so hard at it, that we stopped traveling to shows in 2002 and closed our shop in 2003.  We are now Internet Only, and I love it.
So do the Grandchildren, because now we are at home all the time.

The name, "Dolls by Sandie", was the name I chose way back, when I started. Because, back then, that is what I did, made Dolls.  But today, I am a dealer/distributor for many major companies.
I kept the name, because I built it and my customers knew me by that name.

 So, here I am today, dedicated to my site, and dedicated to serving you.

Our goal is to bring you NEW and Exciting, High Quality Dolls, Doll Kits, Doll Items, and Reborn Supplies, with prompt professional service.
We love what we do, and if you have any ideas, please let me know. I am happy to work with you.

THANK YOU AND HAPPY SHOPPING.
