Porcelain Doll Collection-do you have one?

I am starting one for my daughter and am wondering how I should display them and also wondering where the best places to buy them (not too expensive). How do you display your and where do you find them? Thanks!

  • My mom started this with my sisters and I. Every chirstmas we would get a new one. We had shelves around our room to display them. Now mine are packed away, in boxes. If my daughter likes them when she is older, she can have them, if not, I'll probably donate all but my first one.

  • I had three growing up. I might still have them packed away somewhere but I have to admit I am not much of a doll person.

  • I recieved some as a gift, but I got rid of them, they kind of creep me out.

  • I have collected Porcelain dolls for a long time. Right now most of them are put away in storage(don't have any room ) but I used to have them all out in my room when I was younger on my dresser and on shelves. My DD is going to be 9yrs old this August and enjoys collecting porcelain dolls as well. She has them on her dresser and shelves. I buy my DD new ones when we find them at flea markets or stores cheap.

  • I have a china doll that my late Grandma made- I have her on display in my curio cabinet. My Grandma collected all kinds of dolls, and she had the smaller ones in display cabinets, some were sitting on top of it, she had a few in little toy chairs.... My mom has some small dolls and they are displayed on knick-knack shelves on her livingroom and bedroom walls, and her bigger dolls are sitting on the chair and dresser in her bedroom.
