In her 40+ years of dollmaking, Dianna accumulated an extensive collection of dolls. Some one-of-a-kinds, some samples, some limited editions, all of them works of art and tributes to the work that she loved. We will begin offering the dolls from this private collection for auction in September 2021. The auctions will be held on this site (not eBay). Please join our mailing list to be kept up to date on the auctions and see which dolls are up for bid next!
The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out!
The Auction Site is open (though there are no listings until Sunday) Click below to enter. Once you are on the Auction Site, click on the "Register" link (just below the header picture). Here you will set up your User ID & Password. You will need the User ID & Password to bid, so please save this information!

YES! We will ship worldwide. For that reason, shipping charges will not appear on the listings. Once the Auction ends, we will calculate shipping (combining for multiple dolls when possible) and send you an invoice for your total to include the winning bid plus shipping. Invoices will go out on Monday or Tuesday, following the auction to allow us time to accurately calculate shipping. Invoices should be paid by that Friday or risk losing your doll to the second highest bid. Shipping will be calculated at actually weight and dimensions to your destination + $5.00 for packing and handling. Shipping will also include insurance on the doll at the value of the winning bid.
Paypal is our preferred form of payment, but we are working on other options. If you cannot use Paypal, please contact us immediately after the auction to work out other arrangements.
Sorry, no. We receive requests like this almost daily so, in fairness to all, we are not selling dolls in advance of the auction.
Until the dolls are gone. We have approximately 1,000 dolls to find homes for. We will start by doing 10 auctions a week and once we work out all the kinks in our system, expand to 20 or 30 dolls a week.
You'll start on this page. Once the auctions are live you will see an "ENTER THE AUCTION" button at the top of this page. This will bring you into the actual auction site where you will set up your USER ID and PASSWORD. You will also need to enter your name and address.
All auctions will run for 7 days, beginning and ending on Sundays. In fairness to our international friends, we will stagger the start/end times throughout the day/night. We apologize if the auction for doll you really want ends in the middle of the night, but don't despair - our auctions will handle proxy bidding (like eBay). This automatic-bid feature stands in for you so that your bid rises incrementally in response to other bidders' bids. Simply enter the maximum that you would like to bid on that doll. No need to stay up all night watching the auction!
Yes. A couple of days before the auctions go live, we will send out an email to announce what dolls will be listed that week. Also, remember that the auctions run for 7 days, so you'll have 7 days to review the dolls and decide what you would like to bid on.
