Very Important Visitors on a cold January Day!

Blondie's Granddaughter, Johanna, and three Great-Grandsons, Sam, Grant, and George visited the shop on Saturday!  

Note Sam has ice cream - it is never too cold for the Deli's Ice Cream!

And even George, not quite two years old, loves Playmobil!

Come by Blondie's Dolls to see this beautiful painting on the step to our south entrance door. Karen Steiner, Time for Memories at 207 Schiller, painted this beautiful basket of iris and other flowers for Mom. You have to see it to believe how beautiful it is.

We cannot thank you enough for this wonderful gift, Karen.

Blondie's Great-Grandson George gives his approval of our latest outfit, denim bib overalls shorts with a red print shirt. Of course, no shoes, this will be the way he wants to dress while visiting Grandma and Grandpa, and

Great-Grandma Blondie!

Blondie's Dolls had a great time at Starkenburg Spirit of Christmas 12/7 - 12/10. The Country Store in Valentine Hall was a good attraction for visitors who came to hear the Spirit of Christmas music program. Thank you to Debi, Denise and Ava for representing us there so we kept the shop open too!

Blondie's Dolls had a very special group of visitors on Saturday, Oct. 15. A group from St. Louis Miniature Museum enjoyed the doll gallery, lunch, and an overall fun day in Hermann. Blondie is a Charter member of the organization and was quite excited to have them visit. They also celebrated a birthday ​ with a kazoo rendition of Happy Birthday and then honored mom with the same rendition for her past (February) or next Birthday. We were not quite certain which.

Blondie Haeberle always loved dolls and began seriously collecting after her first granddaughter, Johanna, was born in 1977. When combined with the dolls of her family, she has accumulated over 1000 dolls and is now sharing them with the public.

The Doll Gallery has over 500 dolls to view, and the Gift Shop includes collectible bears from Germany, Playmobil toys headquartered in Germany, paper dolls and books for old and young alike, and doll clothes and accessories for American Girl and other 18" dolls.

Blondie's Doll Gallery & Gifts is open. Come see us at 201 Schiller, Hermann, Missouri.
