It's Been Good to "Know" You (Denise Van Patten)

Denise Van Patten, the Guide of About.com's Doll Collecting, has retired from that post.

Longtime doll collector-enthusiasts may be familar with Ms. Van Patten as author of The Official Price Guide To Dolls or as "proprietress" of Katherine's Cottage. I have gleaned many tips from her About Doll Collecting pages from basic information such as doll terminology and more advanced information like organizing a collection. She has covered a variety of dolls, from antiques to Barbie.

Thanks for your many years of service to the online doll collecting community, Denise Van Patten.

Hello from Spain: I did not know Denise Van Patten. I read that she was a collector of dolls. She writes interesting articles about the dolls. Keep in touch

I read Denise's retirement announcement last year.

She offered the doll community a wealth of information on all types of dolls throughout her About Dolls tenure.

Hi Marta, Georgia Girl, DBG, and Brini.

Yes, Denise Van Patten will be missed. Glad to have "met" her (via the Internet) and wish her continued success with her doll shop.
