Hello! My name is Antonina.

I collect dolls in national folklore outfit from different countries since 1992. I like the idea to study national costumes from these beautiful dolls. Some of them are new, some old, some were purchased from modern shops, some were custom made, and couple of them were made special for me. Each doll is special for me and I adore every and each doll in my collection.

I have a few dolls which were came to my hands damaged so I fixed them with all my love. You can see some my repair works at special section on my Site.

On this Site you can find also non costumed dolls which are the part of my collection as well. Just browse though the section to see some more interest dolls.

In 2007 I opened for myself another source of costumed figurines, - fridge magnets. Since that I collect fridge magnets in a shape of figurines in national folklore outfits. I guess it's a very cool collection. Welcome to the special section to see how different and nice are just simple fridge magnets in folklore costumes.
