Ginny (1985) Redhead Vogue Doll
Vogue Dolls are said to be made with love. Each doll will give you much joy and fun. You will be proud and happy to own them. Don't miss out! Ginny’s roots actually extend back to 1922, when a resourceful young woman, Jennie Adler Graves, established Ye Olde Vogue Doll Shoppe in her home in Somerville, Massachusetts. The story is that a "friend", who knew of Jennie Grave's skill in sewing children's clothes, asked her to dress some dolls for a charity event. Unbeknownst to Jennie, the "friend" was selling the dolls instead of giving them to charity! Thus inspired, Jennie Graves began dressing and selling imported German dolls to Jordan Marsh, a well-known Boston department store. In 1951, Ginny was officially born, named after Jennie's daughter Virginia.
