Where do I buy my dolls?

I started to collect dolls 6 years ago and during this time I met a lot of fantastic sellers. It´s incredible but I have only two bad experience with dolly sellers! And in both cases, at less, I get my money back.  But obviously I have my FAVOURITE sellers and may be you are intersted in to know who they are :D. I know many doll collectors know perfectly where to buy their dolls, but sometimes I recieve mails from people who dont know for example Tonner doll and they ask me about the dealers… so there are my favourites doll sellers:

1. Lone Star Dolls:  Dale from Lone Star Dolls was my first tonnerdoll dealer and I have only fantastic experience with her shop. She is always very professional and great person! She is US seller of Tonner doll and BJD. Web: http://www.lonestardolls.com/servlet/StoreFront and ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/Dales-Doll-Shop?_rdc=1

2. Lilyshop: Lily from Taiwan is other of my favourite sellers. She sells Tonnerdoll only and I have great experience with her! She is very professional, fast, nice  and accessible! Dont worry about the shipping cost – for example to Mexico is similar to the shipping cost from USA. And :D I love her photos. On her website she doenst use promo photos but she always uploads her own photos where you can se perfectly the REAL doll.  Web: http://www.lilyshop.com.tw/ and  ebay: http://shop.ebay.com/tw7580/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25

3.  Marsha´s dollhouse:  Marsha is US seller of Tonnerdoll, Integrity Toys and Mattel dolls. Most of my IT dolls (except 3-4) are from her shop. Unfortunatelly I have bad experience with IT dealers so I always prefer to buy IT dolls with Marsha or any very known re-seller because she offeres actual collection only. She is really very professional seller and she has fantastic prices for Tonner dolls. But… always when I recommend Marsha to my friends I advice that sometimes she replies the mails with delay. But if you have any problem with the purchase she replies very quickly and she solves the problem!  Web: http://www.marshasdollhouse.com/default.asp and  ebay:  http://shop.ebay.com/marshasdls/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25 

4. John Robert Collectibles:  Shop that I visit always where I want any expensive doll with better price because on ebay they sell  fantastic NUDE dolls :D. JR Collectibles offers many types of dolls - Tonnerdolls,  Madame Alexander, Barbie, etc. I have only fabulous experience with this shop – they are very professional and fast! Web: http://www.johnrobertcollectibles.net/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=SFNT&Store_Code=JRC and ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/JOHN-ROBERT-COLLECTIBLES?_trksid=p4340.l2563

5. Roserouge collectibles: This is  the only store with Tonnerdolls that had a chance to visit personally so it is very special for me :D. It is in Montreal, Canada where lives my husband´s family so I visited it during one of our family trips :D. But I also bought from Roserouge Collectibles via ebay and everything was excelent too. They are very professional and very accesibble! Web: http://www.roseetrouge.com/ and ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/roserougecollectibles?_rdc=1

6. Pat ´s Potpourri: Other great US seller of Tonner dolls , Integrity Toys and more. Very professional. Good communication!  Web: http://www.patspotpourri.com/ , ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/kaydee3-dolls?_trksid=p4340.l2563

Special mention:

 Wilde Imagination: http:/u /www.wildeimagination.com/default.aspx?skinid=1 -  official store of Wilde Imagination and the only store where you can buy directly Evangeline Ghastly or Ellowyne Wilde. Great service and great communication!

Angelic Dreamz: http://www.angelicdreamz.com/ - I have no experience with Angelic Dreamz but Im big fan of that store :D. The work dedicated to that dolly empire is impressive! I love their photos and JAMIE show dolls and accessories are really amazing.  And I have heard only fantastic comments about this store and its service.
