I have had a truly fucked fall.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly…

My personal history of collecting dolls is not unlike others’ I’ve encountered across the globe. At some point in our youth, we were positively impacted through an encounter with a doll in such a way that forever left us imbibed with a sense of ‘knowing’ something others do not.
