I am the largest licensed retailer of RETIRED Katherine's Collection merchandise. I do not buy used items from private collectors. I acquire most items from boutique store buyouts. Most items have only been opened to photograph. Some have been used as store display only. Each item will state if it has original box, COA, and/or stand. Many early Katherine's Collection dolls were not made to be placed on stands. This is a great opportunity for collectors to acquire these retired hard to find dolls. You can buy with confidence knowing these are new old stock that have never been owned. Katherine's Collection specializes in unique handmade dolls and collectibles. They are sold in luxury boutiques and department stores. The quality in their items is like no other in the industry. I have personally been to their headquarters and have seen first hand the magic that these talented craft makers put to life. From the designs created by ones imagination (not a pattern!), to the delicate molds, and the amazing amount of high-end fabrics. This company cares about the quality and uniqueness of their designs. Katherine's dolls are and made in limited editions and are retired after one or two seasons which makes them highly collectible and increase their value. If an item has a Wayne Kleski tag, it was designed by him. Brand new merchandise from Katherine's Collection is not designed by Wayne Kleski. Many listings on eBay are misrepresented as his, when in fact they are not.
