Himstedt Heaven

My visit at Kay Poppenatelier in the Netherlands

My boyfriend recently moved to Holland to study for 5 months and when I went to visit him I also visited Helma at Kay Poppenatelier. What a great store. It was like being in dollie heaven. Helma has so many dolls and she's delightful to talk to. We had a great talk about Himstedt dolls and she showed me her pictures from the Toy Fair in Nuremburg. I took some pictures of her store but since I don't have a memory card yet for my digital camera (I keep using the money on dolls) I couldn't take pictures of all the dolls and the quality is not the greatest. The pictures below are thumbnails. Just click on them to see the larger images. I hope you'll enjoy Helma's wonderful store as much as I did.
