The Doll House Elora opened in Elora Ontario in 1980 offering Secondary market dolls, Doll Houses and Miniatures. At that time, the only option doll collectors had was to purchase secondary market dolls or antique dolls. Dolls that had originally been designed for play became very popular with collectors. Dolls such as Chrissy and Velvet, Chatty Cathy, and Shirley Temple.
The years following showed many moves, all to larger locations, as well as opening satellite shops in Orangeville Ontario and St. Jacobs Ontario. As well as retailing, our retail space included a full fledged doll hospital where people brought their dolls in for repairs from all over Ontario.
A decision was made to concentrate more of our efforts with an online store in 2002 and we closed our main Elora location at that time. We continued to offer a small retail outlet in St. Jacobs Ontario until 2012. With the closing of our last remaining retail outlet, we are excited to be putting all of our energies into our online stores.
We will be updating our stock and selection here on a regular basis and hope that you enjoy the dolls that we have to offer.
