Doll artist and Collector


Welcome! We collect dolls and do YouTube vidoes on our channel also called BeneDolls where we talk about with our collections.

Our family business is the Auction Marketplace, an eclectic shop filled with antiques, vintage collectibles, dolls and toys.  I enjoy sharing my collections with my children.  My boys and I collect Star Wars, vintage video games, comics, Legos, and Funko Pop figures.

My girls and I collect American Girl dolls. Our collection has grown so much that we opened the American Girl Doll Museum!

My personal doll collection also includes ball jointed dolls (BJD), Blythe and Pullip dolls.  On YouTube we’ll learn, share and have lots of fun with our collections.

BENEdolls – American Folk Art Dolls and Figures are inspired by antique papier mache dolls. These one of a kind figures are sculpted in papier mache, polymer clay or resin then painted and detailed.  Some dolls have moveable heads, arms, legs and removable clothing.  The clothes for each doll is hand crafted using tea dyed fabrics, antique and vintage lace and trims.  The dolls have an antique old world quality and their clothes reflect that.  I search antique stores and flea markets for antique doll clothes to incorporate into outfits for the BENEdolls. Each BENEdoll has its own look, and no two are exactly the same.
