Bambolina Dolls by Principessa Boutique

Principessa Bambolinas (All photos taken by KLW Fotos)
Today at the Owl's Skull, we are featuring Principessa Bambolinas. Each doll is handmade. They start from a pile of fabric and end up beautiful and unique. The dolls can be custom-ordered to fit any theme. They can be crafted to match a special outfit worn by the owner. They have also been made to match certain themes: ballerinas, birthstone color, sports themes. Luckily, for those of you who live outside of the Pittsburgh region, the dolls can be shipped anywhere in the country.  One doll, for example, was made for the daughter of a Cincinnati Bengal with her dad's jersey number on it. The very first one sold is now in a nursery for a little girl in Florida.

Each Bambolina sale also supports local charity. Proceeds are donated to The Young Women's Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation and Autism Speaks since both causes are near and dear to the family who owns Principessa.  The dolls are designed and crafted by two women, the mother and the aunt of the three sisters who own the boutique; the aunt herself is a breast cancer survivor. 

The dolls can be purchased for $85. Orders can be emailed to or placed in person at the store, which is located in the Shoppes at Quail Acres, south of Pittsburgh in Washington, PA (The address is 1445 Washington Road; Washington, PA 15301). The Facebook page for Principessa can be found here (go like them; they have stuff that is seriously adorable for both boys and girls).  What kind of Principessa would you order? I can just imagine some book-themed Principessas myself:). A/J
