Frustration with the availability of good quality dolls prompted Annette to begin her own business. The business was started "on a shoestring" budget and Annette's first "assistant" was her then 11-year-old daughter, Lindsay. Annette and Friends Collectible Dolls has been officially in business since March 1994.The store was expanded to twice its size within the first year of operation and expanded again the following year. There are approximately 3,000 square feet of wall-to-wall, ceiling to floor DOLLS, DOLLHOUSE MINIATURES, FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES! With something for everyone, Baby's First Madame Alexander doll can be found here, as well as high end collectible dolls. Build your own doll house or have it built and then furniish it to suit your taste, Annette's store truly offers a "hands on" environment where she encourages her clients to find just the right doll or dollhouse.
