*SOLD*This is Destany!  Destany began as a 1980's Sasha girl.  She has been restrung and remade into a one of a kind girl with brown hair and green/brown eyes.

 She has a light smattering of freckles across her nose and comes dressed in a simple white eyelet dress with panties, shoes and socks, all in white.  

Her wig is a Monique wig and can be parted different ways, as it has a "skin" cap on the top, giving it very natural look (rather than a stitched part).  It is synthetic mohair so it it is very soft and fine.  

Destany is a one of a kind and can never be exactly duplicated.  She is $385 and comes as shown.  Her friend, Delaina is available separately.  I may be contacted here

Meet Delaina!  On Sale:  $300 to make room for new dolls!  Delaina began as a "quite played with" 1980's Sasha girl. She is not perfect as she has a small nose nick that I smoothed over but is still there and a finger nick.  She needed to be cleaned and restrung and she has some shiny places where she was played with a lot, but she is overall in good condition.  And her cute, pixie-like face makes up for her boo-boos!

She has a Monique Gold Faith wig in "Reddish Brown" and is very long and very similar to the "shaggy" long style of studio dolls.  Her eyes are large and inspired by the large saucer eyes on the Gotz Sashas in the 1960's, or the large eyed studio dolls that Sasha created

She is a "dress me" and comes dressed in white bloomers and slip with shoes and socks so that you can dress her any way you like!  Her features are such that she will look great in a wide variety of colors!

She has a couple of very small lines on her back, I guess from a doll stand. 

Delaina comes signed with a certificate and she is $325; overseas shipping is available and I am Paypal verified.   I may be contacted here

(SALE PENDING) Meet Allison!    Allison began as a 1980's Sasha in need of a remake and she is now a one of a kind girl with blonde hair, blue eyes and freckles!

  I felt I really needed to do a very light haired girl for summer, so here she is!  She wears a simple summer dress and comes barefoot, so you can put your favorite Sasha shoes on her (also helps me keep the cost down!)  Please excuse the two tiny bits of hair in the closeup photos - I had just snipped two strands of extra long bangs in the front and they ended up on her nose!)

Allison wears a very soft, synthetic mohair human hair wig in a very pale blonde, by Monique.  She has been restrung and is in good condition.  Comes signed by me, (numbered with the month/year of creation) and with a certificate for identification.  

She is a one of a kind and can never be exactly duplicated.  She is $325 and shipping dependent on zip code.  I may be contacted here

SALE PENDING Meet Esther!  Esther was a sort of rescue project, and as such she is priced at a lower price than my usual custom dolls.  And I apologize in advance for the photos - I tried three cameras and because she is such a dark and shiny doll I had a lot of trouble with the light!  The camera could not adjust the dark with the light dress and the reflections were crazy!

 She began as a 1970's early Caleb.  The body on the doll was strung so tightly that it pulled in the neck so that it caved and also at the side.  I heated and reshaped and "froze" the body in place and after a few days restrung her loosely.  She isnt' so loose that she cant stand but she i is loose as to not put pressure around the neck.  It's been about a month since then, and the neck at the torso is still pulled in since vinyl has a "memory" but it is not terrible.  Her neck knob has a small ridge in it also from all those years of being in the same place as does her one arm.

But she is poseable, just not as "smooth" as a regular Sasha.  For some reason, the early black bodies tend to cave easier when strung tightly.

That being said, I couldn't just sell this doll for parts - I wanted to do an African American Sasha girl.  Her features have been boldly painted and she wears an old fashioned  dress by Diane's Delights with high boots on her feet.

Her wig is a Monique wig that is very kinky, and is in two braids.

She is a bargain doll at $250 since she was so much of a "rescue"!  I may be contacted here 
SALE PENDING "Frieda" -means peace and joy.  It seemed a perfect name for this summertime girl!  She has very light features, wild brown hair and pink cheeks; and is dressed in white with bare feet.

   My camera was not behaving at all in dealing with the contrast between the white fabric and dark skin and darker hair so these photos did not do her justice; and I even tried switching cameras!

 She began as a 1980's Sasha.  Her synthetic mohair wig is very soft and fine and kinky.  I am adding TWO dolls at once today so scroll down for the second doll available.  


Frieda is $365 and I may be contacted here

In 1918, Johnny Gruelle published his first Raggedy Ann book and rag doll that would become famous all over the world.  The doll belonged to his daughter, Marcella, who became a character in the Raggedy Ann books as the little girl to whom the toys and dolls belonged.  Sadly, Marcella passed away at the age of 13.

Johnny Gruelle kept the memory of his daughter alive through the dolls and volume after volume of Raggedy Ann stories.

I thought this short haired Sasha girl would make a great Marcella ! So here she is.

"Marcella" began as a 1982 short haired Sasha girl.  I have dyed her hair to match the color of "Marcella's" in the book illustrations.  Her features are repainted and her cheeks are slightly blushed.  She wears a simple handmade yellow dress by lovzone7 

 with fun red shoes.   I wanted her to be a sweet remembrance of a little girl whose own rag doll would delight generations of children.  

Of course she can't go anywhere without her four companions - Raggedy Ann, Andy, Quacky Doodles and Fido the dog.  Quacky Doodles is a little known character in very early Johnny Gruelle books, and Fido, Marcella's dog,  is a character in the original Raggedy Ann stories.

Marcella also comes with a hard cover volume of Raggedy Ann stories that is a combination of the books "Raggedy Ann Stories" and "Raggedy Andy Stories".  It is a large book that features many original color illustrations and the original text. 

 Marcella will come with all of the above.  She is a one of a kind and can never be exactly duplicated.  She is $425 plus shipping.  While the books is included, it does add weight, and thus additional postage so if you happen to already have the book and don't want it, I can give you a shipping weight with and without.  

 In the sunny meadow, on the way home from a long day of playing........
