Marcin Antiques: Specializing in Vintage & Antique Holiday Memorabilia, Dolls & Toys


If you love the warm feelings that nostalgic vintage and antique holiday memorabilia bring, and you love the beauty and fun of antique dolls and toys as much as I do, then we have much in common! I am Cynthia J. Breen Vogel – also known as “Ziz” or Zizsdream on eBay – and I am the founder of Marcin Antiques.

Established in 2004, Marcin Antiques is an excellent source for some wonderful pieces in these specific areas. I love and personally collect these treasures as well and you can trust me to be knowledgeable about what I am selling.

My Areas of Specialty:


  • Antique Dolls: my focus is primarily on pre-World War One bisque-head dolls from France and Germany – although I occasionally share desirable later-made dolls on behalf of other collectors.


  • Antique Toys: as with holiday memorabilia, I focus primarily on items that date from the 1960s and earlier.

I Also Sell Items for You!

From a single piece to entire collections, I am always looking for new inventory. There are two ways I can help you with items for which you would like to find new homes:


  • I can buy them directly from you at fair prices, or …


  • I can sell them on consignment. I charge a 25% commission with a $10.00 minimum – plus any PayPal fees (and any eBay fees for items sold on eBay.) Here are some examples:
    • If I sell an item for $100 on eBay, the outside fees average around 15%. When you include my 25% commission, then I would send you a check for $60.00.
    • If I sell an item for $100 on my website, then the only fees would be my commission and PayPal’s 3% – so you’d receive $72.00.


I will choose the best avenue for your item or items, which will include either listing the item on eBay, or selling the item on my website. Please review some of my past sales and prices realized.
