Good evening to all! It’s been awhile since I stopped by the website to give you an update of what’s new around Land of Oz Dolls. There are some exciting things happening here! First news is I am beginning online porcelain doll classes through a group on Facebook. I will be doing some free demonstrations along with doing classes online for both modern and antique reproduction doll makers. By joining the group if you are a Facebook user, it will keep you informed of the upcoming classes and free demos. Joining the group does not commit you to paid classes, it just lets you know what will be available and when. If you are not a Facebook member and you are interested in online classes please contact me at email@example.com I am trying to set up a way to also do classes for non Facebook users. The group is called Land of Oz Dolls – Connie Zink. Here is a link to the Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1154476334610929/?ref=bookmarks
I also have some of my most popular doll making supplies back in stock! My three CD Workbook set is back and on sale! These include one on painting a Jumeau, a Bru, and Modern Eye Painting. These CD’s have been available before so if you already have some from me they are the same just back in stock again! The CD Workbooks are step by step full color instructions and photos that guide you through the steps for the complete doll. This year I am hoping to complete a new CD on the AT11, one of my favorite antique reproduction dolls. Here is a link to the CD’s: https://landofozdolls.net/cd-doll-making-workbooks/creating-the-perfect-bru/ Just scroll to the bottom of the page of the individual CD’s and the set on sale will be at the bottom of the page.

I will also be adding in February an In-Depth Modern Doll Eye Painting Kit for Blue and Brown Eyes (11 china paints). Here is a link to the china paint kits: https://landofozdolls.net/doll-supplies/paint/
Also now available for the first time in several years!!! I will be carrying the Seeley Doll Brushes! Always a favorite for doll makers these brushes are now available for purchase from me and can be added in with your other doll making supplies to save on shipping. There are no shopping cart buttons for the brushes. Currently there is only a price list. You will need to email me the brushes you would like to purchase and I can add them in to any existing orders or you may purchase brushes alone. Eventually I will be able to add photos of the brushes to the page here on the website. Here is a link to the brush price list: https://landofozdolls.net/seeley-doll-brushes/

Orders must be placed through Land of Oz Dolls by either email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 815-565-0024. You can not order directly through Monique and receive the discounts below. Their will not be any shopping cart buttons available on these items here on my website.

Good afternoon all, I wanted to let you all know about some special sales I am having in my eBay Store. I will be discontinuing selling doll supplies in my eBay store, so I started many three day auctions this morning on 12″, 16″ and 8″ French Fashion Doll supplies and other items. When these are gone I will no longer be stocking these items. Please keep checking my eBay store periodically for new clearance items that will be added. I need to make room here in the shop so time to start clearing out the excess stock I have. In the future, I will be concentrating on my finished doll, soft-fired greenware and bisque orders. Here is a link to my store: http://stores.ebay.com/Land-of-Oz-Dolls-by-Connie-Zink
I also have an auction ending in a few hours on this adorable 8″ K&R 114. I only have one of these so if you are interested please bid now!
The final days have arrived for the 10% discount sale on New York Doll Products (Seeley’s) Composition Bodies, Molds, Porcelain Slip, and China Paints. Sale prices are only good on orders placed through Land of Oz Dolls. Sale ends at midnight, Friday, February 6th. Inquiries and orders must be sent to email@example.com by midnight, Friday night. My distributorship ends on Sunday, February 8th, so I will be removing the NYDP porcelain slip and composition body pages from my website this weekend.
I am also a distributor for The Bell Collection and Collectible Doll Co., so will be concentrating on these companies and will be happy to continue to serve my customers with Bell and Collectible doll products, such as porcelain slip, doll molds, doll bodies, china paints, brushes, etc. I will also be adding pages to my website for composition bodies made from Compo-Bell we will be manufacturing ourselves. Bodies may also be ordered in porcelain, in both SFGW and bisque. We have many, many sizes of antique reproduction body molds in French, German, Baby, Toddler, and Lady styles that will be available in both painted and unpainted pieces poured in Compo-Bell. Body parts may be purchased unstrung and you can string yourself.
Ordering the parts and stringing them yourself will reduce shipping prices as the boxes used to ship can be smaller, which in turn will reduce shipping costs. Most shipping companies have now gone to dimensional rates instead of rates determined by weight for packages that don’t weigh a lot.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with or if you have any questions. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 815-565-0024. Thanks!
Hi all, I need to clarify, some have misunderstood my post of a few hours ago. New York Doll Products is not closing Feb. 8th, 2015. That is when my distributorship ends and I will no longer be carrying their products. They will however be availible direct from the company. I am truly sorry for any misunderstandings. Thanks Connie Zink
I am very sorry to post the following announcement but as of February 8th, 2015 I will no longer be offering for sale composition bodies, porcelain slip, and china paints from NYDP. I am currently offering my last 10% off sale on these items starting today through February 6th. After this time they will be removed from my website. Please read the following notice:

I am very sorry to announce that I learned today, that as of February 8th 2015, I will no longer be a distributor for New York Doll Products. All U.S. Distributorships will be cancelled at that time. After being a distributor for Seeley’s and then NYDP for over 25 years I am sorry to have to make the announcement that I will no longer be able to provide my customers with NYDP composition bodies, porcelain slip, doll molds, and china paints due to the loss of my distributorship. I will remove the pages from my website for their bodies and porcelain slip as of February 9th, 2015.
Starting today, January 8th I will be placing my last orders for composition bodies, porcelain, doll molds, and china paints. I am offering 10% off all composition bodies, porcelain orders, doll molds, and china paints from now until February 5th. I will place my last order on Friday, February 6th just before my distributorship ends.
