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.
