ABOUT ME


KATHY'S CHATTY CATHY DOLLS IS A SMALL BUSINESS RUN BY MYSELF.   I'M KATHRYN SCOTT.
I'VE BEEN DEALING IN ANTIQUES FOR MOST OF MY LIFE AND HAVE COLLECTED DOLLS SINCE I WAS A GIRL.
I RECENTLY BECAME A GRANDMOTHER OF TREE SMAll GRANDCHILDREN.   MY GRANDDAUGHTER AVA THE OLDEST, SEEMS TO GO FOR MY CHATTYS WITH EXCITEMENT ON HER FACE!  I BELIEVE I NOW HAVE SOMEONE TO PASS DOWN MY COLLECTION TO AND HAVE FUN COLLECTING WITH HER. MY OTHER GRANDDAUGHTER ISN'T AS INTERESTED AS OF YET. SO HOPEFULLY THEIR WILL BE NO FIGHTING OVER GRANDMA'S DOLLS.
CHECK OUT MY FOR SALE PAGE AT THE BOTTOM AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT I MEAN ABOUT AVA.
NO MATTER WHICH DOLL I GIVE HER SHE KEEPS GOING FOR THE CHATTY CATHYS.
A GIRL AFTER MY OWN HEART!

I HAD A CHATTY CATHY DOLL WHEN I WAS A GIRL AND SOMEHOW SHE WAS LOST. 
I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING DOLLS AND DEALING AND SELLING ANTIQUES AND MORE FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS.
ALSO DURING THE LAST 30 YEARS I'VE WORKED AS A CHILD ADVOCATE IN JUVENILE COURT, AS A VISITATION SUPERVISOR, CASE MANAGER, SOCIAL WORKER, AND GUARDIAN AD-LITEM FOR THE FAMILY COURT.  I'VE WORKED WITH CHILDREN AND PARENTS GOING THROUGH CUSTODY BATTLES AND OTHER PROBLEMS WITHIN OUR SUPERIOR COURT SYSTEM.  ALTHOUGH THE PARENTS PAID ME, THE CHILDREN WERE ALWAYS MY CLIENTS.
DUE TO DISABILITY REASONS I CAN NO LONGER DO THAT WORK BUT DO STILL HELP FOLKS NEEDING TO FILL OUT LEGAL PAPER WORK OR THAT HAVE QUESTIONS ON HOW TO MAINTAIN A RELATIONSHIP WITH BOTH PARENTS.  I MISS WORKING WITH CHILDREN AND WORKING IN THE LEGAL SYSTEM BUT PLAYING WITH DOLLS IS FAR LESS STRESSFUL. 
I ALSO AM A MEMBER OF THE CLERGY OFFERING MY SERVICES AS A WEDDING OFFICIANT, DOING MEMORIAL SERVICES AND AFFIRMATIONS OF LOVE CERERMONIES.
CHATTY CATHY AND MATTEL TALKING TOY SALES AND COLLECTING IS ABOUT ALL I HAVE TIME TO DO.  I SPEND MOST OF MY TIME ON THE COMPUTER WRITING CHATTY CUSTOMERS AND DOING RESEARCH FOR A BOOK I HOPE TO GET OUT IN THE NEXT YEAR OR SO.
I’M ALSO A MEMBER OF THE NEW YORK AUCTION ASSISTANTS ASSOCIATION AND WASHINTONIANS EBAY AUCTION ASSISTANTS ASSOCIATION.  
I HELP PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE TIME OR THE KNOWLEGE ON HOW TO SELL SUCCESSFULLY ON EBAY OR THOSE WHO HAVE AN ESTATE TO DEAL WITH.  HELPING PEOPLE AFTER A DEATH IN THE FAMILY TRY TO MAKE SENSE OF A HUGE OLD DOLL OR OTHER COLLECTIONS IS REWARDING AS IT HELPS ALLEVIATE STRESS DURING AN ALREADY ROUGH TIME.
I DON'T SELL TOO OFTEN ON EBAY ANYMORE BUT DO HELP OTHERS THAT ARE PLANNING TO BUY A DOLL TO MAKE SURE THEY GET A DOLL THAT IS TRULY ORIGINAL.  I ALSO HELP PEOPLE KNOW WHAT QUESTIONS TO ASK AND WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN THINKING OF MAKING AN EBAY PURCHASE.  WHILE EBAY CAN BE FUN IT IS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT THAT DOLLS SHOW UP NOT AS DESCRIBED AND THE BUYER ENDS UP VERY UPSET.  IT IS I SUPPOSE,  ONE OF MY PET PEEVES, SO I ENJOY HELPING PEOPLE MAKE SAFE PURCHASES ON AUCTIONS.


I OPENED KATHY'S CHATTY CATHY DOLLS RIGHT AFTER THE TRAGEDY ON 9/11/01.  I WENT LOOKING FOR MY LONG LOST CHILDHOOD DOLL AND FOUND HER.  THEN I WAS HOOKED AND BEGAN COLLECTING AND SELLING HUNDREDS OF DOLLS EVER SINCE.
I LEARNED THAT MANY OTHER AMERICANS WERE ALSO DOING THE SAME AFTER 9/11.
I THINK THE NEED TO FIND COMFORT DURING SUCH FRIGHTENING AND UNCERTAIN TIMES CAUSED PEOPLE TO WANT TO GET SOMETHING WARM AND FAMILIAR.
THIS WASN'T IN MY MIND AT THE TIME.   I DID FIND IT INTERESTING TO LEARN THAT THOUSANDS OF OTHER AMERICANS WERE DOING THE SAME TYPE OF THING.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEND OUT WORDS OF GRATITUDE TO OUR TROOPS AND HOPE FOR A SAFE AND SPEEDY RETURN HOME.




MY STOCK ROOM AND WORK
I HAVE ONE OF THE LARGEST STOCK ROOMS IN THE U.S.
I LOVE THIS WORK.  THE BEST PART OF WHAT I DO IS HELPING OTHERS. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE WHEN ASSISTING SOMEONE IN FINDING THEIR LOVED ONE THIER LONG LOST CHATTY CATHY OR OTHER MATTEL TALKING TOY OR DOLL.  I LOVE THE STORIES AND THE PEOPLE I MEET ON-LINE.  I SPEND MUCH OF MY TIME ANSWERING QUESTIONS AND HELPING OTHERS IDENTIFYING DOLLS OR FINDING A DOLL THEY WANT.

I SHIP ALL OVER THE WORLD AND WORK 7 DAYS A WEEK.
IF YOU WANT AN AL ORIGINAL, UNALTERED DOLL THEN THIS IS THE PLACE TO COME.  



 I HAVE A BLOG AT GOOGLE BLOGS. THE OLD MESSAGE BOARD IS NO LONGER BEING USED AND SOMEONE THERE SWIPED ALL MY PHOTOS AND MATERIALS AND LINKED IT TO THAT BOARD!  
   I AM AN "EXPERT" ON CHATTY CATHY AND OTHER DOLLS. 
I HAVE COUNTLESS HOURS OF WORK, AND RESEARCH TO FINDING OUT WHAT WAS AND WAS NOT MADE BY THE MATTEL COMPANY.
