Dolls & Decor
"I've loved dolls all my life, as far back as I can remember,” says Jennifer Parker, the owner of Dolls & Decor. “It wasn’t until 2007, when my two daughters (teenagers at the time) became busy with their own lives, that I had the time to focus on my collection.”
“I collect Vintage Barbie and her friends mainly from the 1960’s to the early 1970’s and many other dolls, including: Composition Dolls, German and French Bisque Dolls, 1950's Hard Plastic Dolls, 1960 and below Madame Alexander, Ideal Composition Shirley Temple, Effanbee Composition Patsy and many more.
I’ve become obsessed with old composition dolls from the early 1900’s to 1940’s,” Jennifer shares. “Restoring composition dolls is a very relaxing hobby for me. I love to take a really old crazed doll and turn her back into a beauty. At the same time, I do my best to preserve her original character."
As the name implies, Decor is a big part of Jennifer’s vision. She specializes in Victorian and Shabby Chic items with floral designs as well. “I’ve tried to make Dolls & Decor a reflection of the things I enjoy. In addition to dolls, I love teacups and flowers, especially roses, and framed pictures of Victorian children and ladies," Jennifer concludes.
