Antique Doll Repair
updated: Aug 20, 2014, 8:45 AM

I was wondering if any Edhat readers might know of a "doll hospital" in the S.B. area. I have a very old, beautiful, doll who is in need of some repair on her arm. Thanks for any help you might be able to give to me.

You might try the doll museum on Canon Perdido. The Doll & Teddy Bear Museum. I've heard they are hard to contact and I've never seen them open, but they have a website and they seem to know a lot about antique dolls.

We had somedolls repaired near Santa Maria some years back. I can't remember the name, but looking at the listings online, All For a Doll at 925 9 Oaks Ln, Nipomo, CA 93444 (805) 929-4079 might be the one...

Good luck.

I once had the eyes changed on one of my mother's bisque dolls and found out later it would have kept the value up to have left the originals in. And the Little Doll House (SB, almost 3 decades ago) owner kept the old glass eyes (I just was not thinking).
The Schoenhut wood doll has been left with her scratched areas on the face after I went to a doll repair place in Eugene and the owner said to not touch it up. None of the joints needed to be repaired, something that would not show, if fixed.
