Welcome!

The Maine-ly Dolls Club was founded in 1985 as a social and educational group to share, promote, and provide doll-related activities and opportunities for our members, other doll lovers and doll collectors in the area.

 If you have an interest in dolls of any type we invite you to join us, contact mainelyd@mainelydollsclub.org  

Please do not ask us to set a value/appraise your doll(s). There are many excellent doll price guides and internet searches available to help you research the dolls in your collection or ones you are trying to sell.

If you contact us about dolls you have for sale please include the following:

Your contact information, name, town, phone # and e-mail address. Type of doll (bisque, porcelain, compostion, vinyl, etc.)  Who/What company made the doll. Name of doll.  Age of doll. Size of doll. Include information on markings, tags, original clothes, box, etc.  Approximate value of doll and what you are asking for the doll.   Clear photos of your doll will also be helpful.
