Francis (Fran) Simpson was a life long collector of Vintage, modern, Antique Miniature Baby Carriages, buggies, prams, and strollers. If a baby doll could sit or sleep in it & it had wheels she in turn collected it. Her collection was VAST, her expertise nationally respected. Fran was a member of countless Doll House Clubs, Groups, and Associations. She wrote articles and was featured in many National Magazines for her knowledge & her collection. ( Women's Circle March 1981). Her collection was her passion.
At the time of her death in Parker , Colorado her Estate went to Auction, I am blessed & honored to possess a great deal of this collection including her handwritten notes, inventory ledger, black & white photos of herself & children with her steadily growing collection, membership pamphlets, books and of course most of her miniature carriages, strollers, buggys, and prams.
Literally 100's of styles, of all ages & materials. Including pottery ( Shawnee, Fritz & Floyd, Weller, Occupied Japan, Van Briggle, Roseville to name a few), Metals including prized German Schweitzer, Tin, Pewter. Early Plastics from Acme, Hong Kong, Renwal, Marx, Fisher Price, Playskool, Plasco. Beautiful Early Bakelite and Celluloid, wicker, wood, glass, Artisan-made & signed collector pieces from reknowned artisans. I am proud to offer this collection , kept in pristine, nearly museum condition to you today. Please watch my store for new listings, share my shop with the collector in your life and convo if you are interested in a custom listing. Photo 5 is a picture of Fran , her daughter , and collection book & log- for your interest only - not included in this purchase. Photo Props also not included.

Convention. Rare item, expertly crafted in wood, metal wheels, leather bedding , vinyl lined
cotton shade, with gold roping detail. Accurate in every detail, with Betty's paper label on the bottom. MINT!

Trying to predict shipping charges for each individual's purchases & zip codes can be a tricky thing, without a shipping calculator , therefore I base my shipping *estimates on USPO Flat Rate Boxes. When you purchase multiple items or something is heavy flat rate can be cheaper.
BUT- if it's not I ship 1st Class and then REFUND the shipping over charges,
I always always refund shipping overcharges, you pay what I pay. This saves me from having to adjust every shipment & it gets your order to you faster. I understand this is not a perfect system but it works for me most of the time. ( Please read my feedback ) If you are purchasing a single light weight item please convo me and I will adjust the shipping for the item.
