Mrs. Ackley has made the launching of a doll shop sound so practical, alluring and rewarding that anyone with a gift for making dolls will find it an excellent guide to a field of activity. The idea of a career book grew out of the correspondence from adults elicited by her Polls to Make for Fun and Profit and Marionettes. So here is the result, a book which covers all the decorative and creative aspects of a doll shop (name, sign, windows, location, arrangement of interior, various side products, displays, packing, etc.) There is too little about initial costs, book keeping, and all the other dry as dust essentials of even a small business. But perhaps aspirants can get that elsewhere.
