MamazDollz, a woman and Native American owned company based in Longmont, CO, specializes in American Girl brand dolls and has operated an online only eBay store with 100% Five Star Ratings since October of 2016. The owner and operator “Mama Mano” Cockrum will hold one sale yearly in Denver in order to bring together a community of doll lovers of all ages to share in the joy of the coveted dolls and in part to benefit the Native American community of Denver.
The event is held at the Four Winds American Indian Council, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. To hold an event there you are donating to the livelihood of the organization with the fees you pay to utilize the space. The building is located at W. 5th and Bannock St., just one block south of Denver Health, in a church building, which is now known as “Four Winds”.
Furthermore MamazDollz invited the Native American Community to hold a Fry Bread fundraiser during the event, as the lower level of the building has a kitchen and is known for their feasts, community gatherings and amazing fry bread sales. The food will be served beginning also at noon and throughout the course of the sale happening in the upper level of the building. Fry Bread and “Indian tacos” are a delicious fried delight which are often served at Pow Wows and touted as fare you would go out of your way to find and eat!
This sale displays a collection unheard of in the state and possibly the nation- with over 100 of the American Girl 18” dolls and approximately 50 of the mini dolls. There are also over 1000 pieces of doll clothing, entire outfits, boxed and brand new outfits and accessories, furniture and books. This is an event for the collector and gift-giver alike, and it is cash only. Most items are in excellent used condition and a large portion of the items are brand new. Many other brands of 18” dolls and their accessories, clothes and furniture will also be available to purchase.
Collectors will enjoy the retired Pleasant Company rarities from 30 years ago when founder Pleasant Rowland was still the company's president, all the way up to the current day Girl of the Year and Truly Me collections which capture the hearts of fans everywhere. You can expect prices similar to those you may find on eBay, but without the shipping costs. Price depends greatly on the condition and rarity of the doll. Most of these items are retired and no longer available from the company today.
In addition to the sale, MamazDollz will be accepting patients to her Dolly Ambulance service. For very reasonable fees Mama Mano will repair an ailing dolly to its original glory or close to it.
She states, “I love making a doll like new again, giving it renewed life and witnessing the joy it brings to someone who loves that doll. These dolls are truly a friend for life if you care for them properly. If you don't, that's okay, just send your doll to me!”
Her services will include hair repair, skin cleaning, restringing of loose limbs, body cloth cleaning, and “The Works” which is a combination of everything they need. Although she will customize a doll with a new wig and face paint, these orders will have second priority to the ones needing repair, but they are welcome as well.
This event is well received all over the nation, with “AGIGers” (American Girl InstaGram-ers), “AGtubers” (American Girl YouTubers), and American Girl Facebook fans wishing they could attend the sale themselves. Several of the most famous of these with followings in the tens of thousands have called attention to the Best Ever American Girl Sale, even agupdatenews, the world famous American Girl leaks and update source with 18.2k followers, created her own Instagram post about the event and currently features MamazDollz facebook page as her bio link.
