Sneak Preview

Welcome to an interesting new venue for discerning doll collectors. At Couture Doll we'll have the most remarkable group of doll merchants - all under one roof.

This blog/newsletter will be the place to provide information about this project until we open; then it will provide a place for our monthly newsletter. To be sure you are notified when this blog is updated, just sign up to be a follower.

For perspective buyers: Hold on to your credit cards; we anticipate opening end of February or the first part of March. Please be patient, as we are working to get everything set up! And when we open we will make sure you can maneuver all the places of CDS by providing you with clear navigation information.

For perspective shop owners: We will be accepting applications shortly from Doll Clothing Designers who sew for all types of dolls, Repaint Artists, Rerooters, and anyone who sells quality doll items - wigs, shoes, etc.

Our main prerequisite for owners is that they sell quality merchandise. You may sell used or new items as long as clear, honest descriptions are provided. You will set your own store policies and collect your own monies. We will assist you with concise instructions for setting up your website (old or new, paid or free) to accomodate our service.

If this works for you, just send in an EMAIL titled Shop Owner Info. This email should contain your name, your proposed shop name, and your email address in the body. All the information about Couture Doll Shop will be sent to you soon. (We'll post here when information begins to go out.)

Keep in mind, if you have recently participated in CDDC as a designer, we have all your information we need to make a decision on your application - only minimal information will be required when you apply.

Everyone else will need to send in 3 clear pictures of your work and a small bio with your application before it can be considered. So you might want to take the time while you are waiting for information to pull all your application needs together.

Remember, we need clear information about your shop because we may want to recommend you to someone looking for a product you provide.

Thanks for your interest!! And, here's that promised sneak preview on the CDS webpage. Be sure to bookmark it for all your doll needs!
