Auction Features 3,000 Dolls

LACKEY, Miss. (WCBI) — Whether you find them cute, cuddly or even creepy, dolls have made a place for themselves in our hearts and minds.

Collectors and horror movie fans alike may want to make the drive to Monroe County next week.

Stanford and Son Auctions on Highway 45 in Lackey will auction a collection of 3,000 dolls of all ages, shapes and sizes. Many of the dolls are antiques or collectibles. The collection already has attracted Internet interest from several states.

“The collector up north, an antique dealer who had been in business for 40 or 50 years and she decided to retire and she had all these dolls in the attic of her house,” explained Ivan Greenwood of Standford Auctions.

The auction starts at 6 p.m., Saturday, Jan.12. Dolls will be sold in lots by table.
