Behind The Scenes

Official Launch of "The House Of Haunts" TV On Air 2020

Continually Searching and Continually finding.

The questions most frequently asked:

 Q: Why do you own so many figures?

A: My answer is simple. I don't own even one.

Q: How did you  find so many?

 A: Some I find and some find me.

I know my answers sound elusive and  may seem strange but they are true. You see, I consider myself to be merely a care giver. Vintage figures are my passion and I pay to protect  them.

The ones I seek are the "special" ones. The ones that have that special something that you can't describe but you know is there when you see it. 

It's (what I call) "characters within characters."  The ones that are so full of character they seem like they can talk by themselves.

Some of my cast...Well Most of my cast and my passion might be considered creepy and even weird but that is only because you haven't had a chance to get to know them.

Many of my  kids are full of performance energy  and they are just itching for the spotlight and the chance to shine again.

There are so many Wonderful stories we want to share from their past lives and the Amazing builders who created them and the Ventriloquists who breathed life into them.  Most dedicated their lifetime to bringing joy to others. 

I am honored to share their history and the almost magical way many have come into my life.

Dorothy Rankin Collection is Now Part of our Story

Special Thank you to Peter Glidden (The Grandson of Dorothy Rankin) who has allowed this wonderful collection

of her life to become part of our family.  We are so extremely happy and honored.

Reworking The Website

Hi Friends, 

The Collection has officially grown and it is beyond time for us to update, and rework the website.

We've taken thousands of pictures of our new additions and past residents that we've never before shared.

There is Excitement in this house.

The House of Haunts


The Transformation of Barnabus "The Misfit" Monkey is underway.  Barnabus started as an original sculpt I commissioned "Max Echo" ( a young, talented, upcoming figure builder) to create for me.  I have a passion for monkeys and I wanted an original pair. I love The way Max interprets characters so he was the perfect choice and he totally delivered.
