The Austin Doll Collectors Society is an organization of antique, vintage, and modern doll collectors, dealers, and artisans. We meet on the first Monday of each month and our meetings are fun and educational. We begin with refreshments and socializing, and, following our brief business meeting, there is a special doll-related program and "show and tell." The Austin Doll Collectors Society is a nonprofit organization and is a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.

Special Exhibit at Our Upcoming Show

This year our doll show will feature a special display of dolls entitled, "Doll Bodies, From Bisque to BJD." The exhibit will show a history of doll bodies over the past two centuries, from early bisque to modern resin ball jointed dolls.  This frisky flapper just one of the dolls that will be on display.  By the German firm of Simon and Halbig, this 13-inch tall lissome lass has a slim flapper body, shapely legs with a ball joint at knees, and feet molded to fit heeled pumps. She is all original, from her bobbed mohair wig to her scandalous silk teddy to her rayon stockings with ribbon garters and high heels.  This lovely little lady is incised on the back of her head “1159 Simon & Halbig S&H 5.”
