Mod Madness


The past several months have been so mod here at Atelier Mandaline! Most of my recent acquisitions of vintage inventory have been dolls from the 1960s and 70s. Many of these are selling as soon as I get them listed, but I do have a good selection of Crissy and Barbie family dolls still available. See my website for detailed information and slideshows of my Brandi and Skipper, the most recently listed in my store.

It's That Trunk Set Time Of Year!


My first holiday-season doll trunk set is for sale! This features a 1966 Marlo face Twist and Turn Barbie with a Japan body and brown hair and a HUGE set of clothing and accessories. It all comes in a 1961 Ponytail Barbie case re-worked into a custom, one of a kind trunk or handbag. For more information, links to purchase, and to watch Barbie's home video of her mountain vacation please visit my website.

Listen to my Voices


I have stocked new doll voice boxes in my shops. These are realistic-sounding voices that laugh, cry, and say "Mama" when you squeeze them. Listen to the voice boxes and purchase from the links on my website.

Welcome, Fall

 Well, my kids are back to school, which means once my body gets used to the punishingly-early mornings I should be more productive. I don't love the start of school like a lot of parents. It makes me sad to have the kids away and the mornings are just too early. There's just so much rush and drama. The kids themselves were happy to go back and I am grateful they can go in person this year. I console myself with the thought of cooler weather on the horizon. Right now it's still terribly hot (80 degrees at 5:30 AM today) but I know the cold weather is coming. To celebrate, I am having a coupon sale on eBay

You will see a 20% off coupon on all my eBay listings . You may use that public coupon once. Just for blog readers, here's another private coupon code  for 15% off: AMLABOR21. This is also good for one use through 9/22. Maximize your savings by using Add to Cart rather than Buy It Now.  Add as many items to your cart as you'd like before you enter the code at checkout. That way you can get the discounts on more than one purchase!

I hope you have a smooth transition to fall and a wonderful season!

Back To School!

 Summer is almost over and we are gearing up for school to start again. I am not really looking forward to it; my kids have to be on the bus around 6:30 AM and I'm not a morning person! I am also going to miss the freedom of traveling whenever we want. We were away this summer more than we were home, it seems, and we aren't done yet. We will have one last fling, a trip to the mountains, starting tomorrow. My Back To School Sale starts today on Etsy, eBay, and Depop but any orders placed after 9 AM tomorrow will ship on Monday, August 16th.  Link to all my shops from my website. I hope you've had a wonderful summer and have a terrific school year!
