Visit to the Tonner Store

When I lived in Woodstock, NY, it was a 15 minute drive to the Tonner store. Now, it takes about 3 hours and doesn't happen very often. This past Saturday was the first time I've seen the store since it moved to Wall St. in Kingston.
It's always fun to spend time chatting with Dr. Noreen. We could talk for hours and cure all the world's ills.
For those that don't know my story with Noreen, here it is. It was 14 or 15 years ago when I went to my first Tonner trunk sale. It was held out-of-doors at the old building on Lucas Avenue. I was really just beginning my collecting as I had accumulated a few Tiny Kitty dolls prior to then. I saw 16" Tylers, Emmes and a few others for the first time that day and met Noreen. She predicted what was to come as far as my collecting would go. Who knew? It's a very fond memory.

  2. Aaaahh, I love the Sheldon doll! I'm a big fan of The Big Bang Theory show so when I read that Lego is going to release a Big Bang Theory set, I couldn't hold my excitement.I can't wait to get my hands on it!

  3. It would be dangerous for me to see all of these dolls in person. I'm both glad and sad that I don't live within easy driving distance!

    Thank you for sharing the pictures. They were wonderful to see.

    1. For me, it's dangerous to look at all beautiful dolls whether in person or on-line. But it's a joy at the same time. Just keep telling yourself you don't have to have all of them. Hahahaha.
