Small World!
Someone emailed me and said my dolls reminded them of a doll they got as a small child in Bishop Hill IL. The doll was signed "Vicki". I emailed her back and asked if the doll had a red embroidered heart on it's bottom? I also asked if the doll was purchased at the Antique Affair in Bishop Hill, IL.

This was her reply:

Oh my God, YES! I grew up in Bishop Hill and that is where I got my doll!!! You came and autographed her for me one day at the store. Funny how I can't remember a thing from high school geometry, but at 41 I can still remember that.

My doll has moved around the country with me, from Illinois, to Texas, to Arizona and now Ohio. I have looked for you on line for years, not knowing how to find you. I have always wanted a sibling for my doll. She is my favorite childhood memory and I have had many, many dolls but
none meant as much as this doll.

I am so excited to have found you at last.

God bless,
