A kind reader sent information about a doll auction that ends on January 6, 2017, in Oakland, California (bidding opened on December 28, 2016). She felt I and the readers of this blog might find the information noteworthy. I am, therefore, sharing the text of her email:
Hi Ms. Garrett,
I recently came across a black doll collection at an estate in Oakland. The owner left a large and varied collection of black dolls. They are being sold... on the MaxSold website: http://maxsold.maxsold.com/auction/oakland-california-usa-estate-online-auction-graffian-st-3756I thought you and your readers would find the collection interesting. It would be nice to see the dolls go to someone who will love them as much as the owner did.
I agree with Stephanie, it would be wonderful to see these dolls further appreciated by doll enthusiasts. If I lived in or near Oakland, I would certainly do online bidding and make plans to retrieve my winnings on the day the auction closes, Friday, January 6, 2017. It is unfortunate that Maxsold does not provide shipping for those who live outside the Oakland, California area.
Feel free to share this post with those who might be able to attend the auction.
Thank you again, Stephanie, for sharing this information.
